About My Clients

Are you experiencing an increased level of stress? Are you finding it harder to cope with the overwhelming shifts in the way we live our lives? I may be a good fit if you'd like support around anxiety + burnout, ADHD, interpersonal relationship concerns, identity exploration, and first-generation American issues. We'll collaborate to develop a realistic plan to support you in feeling more at peace within yourself and more confident and fulfilled in your choices and your relationships.

My Background and Approach

My approach is culturally sensitive, warm, and pragmatic. My experience as a Persian-French, first-generation American has helped me support and connect with those who may feel lost or marginalized by the mainstream narrative of American society. My goal as a therapist is to create a space where you feel empowered to find your voice amidst often contradictory familial, professional, and societal expectations. Each of us processes the world differently and helping clients build tools for growth while feeling heard, seen, and affirmed is my goal. My approach is strengths-based, mindfulness oriented, and intersectional. I use person-centered, humanist, and narrative approaches through a feminist lens.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

The resilience of the human spirit inspires me, and it is a privilege to witness the transformative and healing power of human connection. I hold a master’s degree in counseling psychology from Northwestern University and completed an externship in Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), as well as advanced training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Mindful Self-Compassion, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and modern psychodynamic theory and practice. My work as a therapist is in addition to an agency that I created to help people navigate dating platforms, create authentic profiles, and connect in today’s modern landscape. I help individuals find supportive and meaningful relationships and feel privileged to connect couples in partnership.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
