About My Clients

Some key things that I support people with are: finding relief from anxiety through the cultivation of self-regulation and nervous system support, navigating loss and major life transitions, building inner trust and attunement to one’s needs, healing from traumatic events, past or present, exploring ways of living in alignment with one’s desires, and creating a relationship with one’s self that is rooted in compassion and acceptance

My Background and Approach

I received my training in Counseling Psychology from the University of British Columbia in Canada. I have also spent the past twelve years working in the non profit sector with people who are refugees or immigrants and who are navigating all that a transition of that magnitude brings. My grandparents were refugees out of Iran, and I personally grew up in a bi-cultural home and immigrated during my adolescent years. My family history and personal experiences led me to devote my career to supporting people who are going through major life transitions, migration, historical trauma and loss. Over the past three years, I have also been studying Somatic Experiencing® (SE™), which is a body-oriented trauma healing model that focuses on resolving trauma in the body and regulating the nervous system. In addition to this, my work is highly relationship focused, person-centered and incorporates mindfulness psychology (specifically trauma-sensitive mindfulness) and existential therapy.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I operate from the belief that each of us carries a great deal of wisdom, and that our own inner knowing is the key to our healing. However, sometimes the experiences we have been through and the systems we live in can disconnect us from that inner knowing. I also believe that we are relational creatures that benefit enormously from a supportive presence as we find our way back to ourselves. As your therapist, I will work with you to help establish an environment that allows you to tap into that inner knowing. In sessions with me, you can expect that I will work with you to create a state of balance and regulation in your body and nervous system. This will allow us to do deeper work without it being overwhelming. I will listen deeply as we explore things with compassion and care. I will ask you questions to help you process your thoughts, see things from new perspectives and get us closer to your truth.
