MARRIAGE AND FAMILY THERAPIST
CERTIFIED HYPNOTHERAPIST

I am a Marriage and Family Therapist, Registered Psychotherapist (Q) as well as an experienced Hypnotherapist.  As an MFT I work with individuals, couples and families dealing with issues such as high conflict, loss, grief, separation, divorce, blended families, infidelity, sexual identity, depression and anxiety to name a few.  As a Hypnotherapist I help individuals with addictions, fears, phobias, self-esteem and performance anxiety.  

I specialize in working with heterosexual as well as LGBTQ clients. In session, we focus on emotions and how to create safety and trust within your relationship with your partner. I also work with individual clients as well as family members opting for therapy.

My approach is grounded mainly in Emotionally-Focused Therapy which is non-judgemental and collaborative. You are the expert of your life and I am your therapist, our combination of strengths is the key to our work together. I also work with other solution based models and tailor an approach that meets your needs

I welcome clients from diverse cultural, ethnic and religious backgrounds. I can offer therapy in Farsi, Italian and English
