Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am a licensed marriage and family therapist. I am also a relationship therapist, which means I want to help my clients to have the best relationship with themselves and with others. I focus on working with adults, couples, teens, and families employing Narrative Therapy. I also bring training in Solution-Focused Therapy, Encounter-centered Couples Therapy, Trauma Resiliency Model, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy. I am also trained in Clinical Aggression Replacement Training by County of Los Angeles Probation Department for working with incarcerated adolescents at Camp Gonzales and Camp Miller, and am a certified premarital counselor through Prepare/Enrich. Additionally, I Co-facilitated court-referred anger management group at Phillips Graduate Institute Counseling Center for over a year and a half. My expertise comes from working with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, anger, life transitions, relationship issues, LGBT challenges, trauma, loss and grief, cross-cultural/interfaith problems, cultural transitional difficulties, and pre-marital conflicts. I moved to the United States from Iran in adolescence, which aids me to understand the complexities of differences, whether cultural, sexual or personal. I have a great understanding of the effects of gender, culture, societal norms, and issues of identity on people's lives. I am bilingual, fluent in both English and Farsi, thus I am able to assist clients in therapy using the Farsi language.
