Therapy is most effective when it is a partnership. No therapist will have all the answers, but I am committed to finding the successful way forward together, individually with each one of my clients. Do you want solutions, and short-term therapy? Then I am the right fit. In my practice, I work together with my clients on solving current problems, finding solutions to frustrating or limiting beliefs, or confronting the profound grief that comes from recent or long-ago lived traumas.
My warm and friendly approach with client’s is encouraging, inclusive and collaborative. I tailor therapeutic interventions to support your individual needs using frameworks from evidenced based practices. I work with adults, children, teens and families, and have a specialization serving the 0-5 age group population and offer parenting support for behavioral issues. I offer strength and compassion when you need it most. I believe that providing a safe place and infusing the therapy process with hope and humor can make the therapeutic experience not just valuable but enjoyable too!
I will encourage you connect to your authentic self to help bring you into a healthier, happier life. I look forward to hearing from you, so we can explore the concerns you’re having, and explore the goals you desire to achieve in order to live the life you desire to live. I am trilingual (English, Armenian, & Arabic) and work with adults(18+) & children.
My experience led me to a deepened understanding of people & their needs. The approach I use focuses on a more fulfilling life in the long term. Step by step you may see your life change.
As an Integrative Wellness and Life Coach, my coaching philosophy is simple: It’s about moving forward . . . without looking behind. We will begin our first session by completing this statement: “I want ____________, but I can’t because _____________.” As your coach, I will (1) Assess the area(s) preventing you from moving forward (what’s got you stuck?); (2) Identify where it is you want to be in life personally and professionally; and (3) Develop a roadmap to get you there.
