Lara Abounayan (she/her)


Welcome, I'm Lara. My work focuses on helping people become better, whole and authentic versions of themselves.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Burbank, CA

About My Clients

I have had extensive experience working with teens, young adults, and career professionals through issues surrounding life transitions (changes planned or unplanned, that are stressful or difficult), anxiety, depression, trauma, self esteem, and family/relationship issues. I also specialize in work with young adults living with chronic illness and pain.

My Background and Approach

My approach is strength based and solution focused. I work from the philosophy that small steps can lead to big changes. I have seen that to be true in my own life as well as through my work with clients. I am trained in using Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Internal Family Systems Therapy, and Narrative Therapy techniques. I work from a solution focused standpoint but I blend strategies from other modalities to create a plan of action that is unique to you.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that anyone has the power to change, sometimes we just need a bit of professional help to get us through. I try to lean in to my work with honesty, compassion, and a bit of humor. We will create a safe, collaborative space where you can be open about your experiences. We will process difficult emotions, challenge not so productive thinking patterns, and work on goals that are important to YOU. Let us work on cultivating a life you are proud to have.
