Breaking cycles or traversing into new territories is challenging, but it is not impossible. By cultivating an authentic relationship, we will cultivate a safe space where you can bring the unfinished business of your life and witness healing occur.
As a former high school Academic Counselor and community college Writing Consultant, my passion for helping individuals navigate the challenges and shifts in their lives motivated my decision to pursue a Master’s Degree in Counseling at Western Seminary. My particular focus on Marriage, Family Relations derived from wanting to learn how to conceptually and tangibly give children, adults, and families the tools to cultivate healthy interpersonal relationships, self-perception, and self-awareness.
The two main therapy modalities I use are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and experiential therapy. CBT helps reframe thought patterns to healthy ones, and experiential therapy helps with experiencing thoughts and emotions that arise at the moment. Experiential therapy is especially helpful when we forget the details of past events. I am particularly passionate about helping my clients navigate challenges related to cultural identity, immigration, anxiety, spirituality, and conflict resolution. I am a trilingual, Bay area resident fluent in English, Assyrian, and Farsi, and I’ve had the privilege to work with a wide range of age groups K to 50+.
