About My Clients

The imposter syndrome leads you to strive for perfection, which can often feel all-consuming as you face pressure to "perform and prove" yourself". Fears of failure and judgment lead to the avoidance of new challenges, causing procrastination, and creating a need for control. You may often find yourself overthinking things, wondering about the “what ifs” and the “shoulds” of different scenarios. I can help you to find relief from your anxiety and the inner critic that dictates your life.

My Background and Approach

After our first session, you will have an idea of what you need in counseling, as we identify what struggles feel the most pressing, and create goals for the therapeutic process. It’s common to experience relief after the first session, as you have a place to be heard and understood, and a sense of clarify and hope moving forward. With weekly counseling sessions, we’ll figure out the roots of your struggles with perfectionism, anxiety and burnout. You can heal from the unpleasant emotions and past traumas that are creating current distress, and learn to manage stressful feelings and thoughts when they do arise. Together we’ll help you create a more fulfilling life, filled with greater inner peace and self-confidence.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Being raised as a first-generation Persian and Assyrian-American, I have had experiences around my ethnic identity and race. I experienced challenges around navigating individuation within a collectivistic family, and felt confusion and pain while seeking to understanding my beliefs in connection to my identity parts. My personal and professional experiences have strengthened my belief in exploring the various facets of a person and being sensitive to relevant cultural, societal, and individual factors that shape us. I acknowledge that differences inevitably exist between us, and I embrace the fact that I have much to gain in learning about cultural and life experiences outside my own. I believe that you’re the expert of your life story, and I seek to be an attuned listener as we take the journey together towards a place of discovery, healing, and growth. Struggling as a culturally diverse millennial can feel very lonely and painful at times; you don’t have to get through it alone.
