My Ideal Client

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 Approach to Helping

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 in 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 work is grounded in evidence-based mindfulness and cognitive-behavioral techniques with integrated therapeutic modalities including, person-centered therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).

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 additional training in mindfulness and self-compassion as well as cognitive-behavioral and modern psychodynamic therapy. 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.

Techniques I Use


  • Couples Counseling External link

    I offer a warm, judgment-free space for couples to explore patterns, triggers, attachment styles, and relationship cycles. I use various techniques from Gottman and Emotionally Focused Therapy to help couples resolve conflict and deepen the quality of their communication and connection.

Issues I Treat


  • ADHD External link

    Those who identify with ADHD are often highly creative with an abundance of ideas + big picture connections. They can also struggle with managing their time (arriving late, super early, or generally overscheduled), organizing daily life (meeting deadlines, staying on task, paying bills on time), and experiencing strong emotions (intense feelings that are hard to manage). I work with clients to regulate difficult emotions and offer effective time management + organizational techniques.

  • Anxiety External link

    Feelings of anxiety such as a pervasive sense of unease, worry, or racing thoughts can be our bodies' SOS signal. It’s an invitation to explore what needs our attention. I will work with you holistically to identify the causes of your anxiety and the emotions you're experiencing as a result. I'll support you in regulating and managing your emotions with mindfulness and CBT techniques to help you feel more grounded.
