I believe in honoring everyone’s diverse life experience. Our work together will celebrate your unique story while supporting you in your journey toward growth and healing.
As a first-generation Persian/French American, my approach is culturally sensitive, warm, and pragmatic. I ground my work in mindfulness and cognitive-behavioral techniques. I believe each of us processes the world differently and I will work alongside you to ensure you are gaining the tools you need to feel heard, seen, and affirmed.
I hold a master’s degree in counseling psychology from Northwestern University. I also received additional training in mindfulness and self-compassion as well as completed elective coursework in cognitive behavioral therapy and modern psychodynamic therapy. As a therapist, I work with individuals who are experiencing dating or relationship issues, life, and career transitions, as well as individuals who struggle with anxiety, ADHD, or work-related stress.
In addition to my work as a therapist, I’m a business owner. I founded an agency that helps people navigate dating platforms, create authentic profiles, and connect in today’s modern-day landscape. Through this work, I’ve helped clients find supportive and meaningful relationships and have had the privilege to witness the transformative power of human connection.
I'm a Professional Counselor Associate working toward full licensure in Oregon and am supervised by Kristen Genzano, LPC, NCC.
