About My Clients

I work with religious leaders and organizational leaders experiencing “burn out” due to self-neglect and lack of boundaries. I also serve those working through profound disillusionment with their families, culture and/or religious faith. As an Armenian-American, I also help clients navigate the awkward often traumatic space of being "in-between" cultures.

My Background and Approach

I aim to treat clients with respect and dignity -- privileging your experience of life as we build goals together. I don't pretend to be the expert of the your life, my role is to facilitate your own discovery of hidden strengths and point out potentially untapped resources. I view things through the lens of story -- we are all piecing together our seemingly random experiences into a cohesive, intelligible story. My role is to help you edit and re-author a life story that makes more meaning for you and those closest to you!

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

In my experience, one of the most difficult things to do in life is to “begin again.” To do so takes bravery, courage and deep personal honesty. Discovering the end of a road is one thing, but being willing to collect one's self and take new steps into uncharted territory — that takes incredible strength. As one who’s struggled to “begin again” I’m here to welcome, guide and encourage you on the new roads you may choose to take. I am convinced that our own stories of change only take place in the context of safety, security and, ultimately, love. James Baldwin, a famous African-American novelist and poet once wrote: “Love takes off masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within.”
