I provide a safe environment and compassionate, non-judgmental counseling to help you explore the personal and relationship challenges you are facing and begin working toward lasting solutions. I pull from a variety of methodologies to help you develop effective strategies and practical coping skills that can address your specific concerns and treatment goals. Whether you are looking for personal growth, relationship healing or overall support, I can help you to more clearly understand why you are struggling and what steps you can take to feel more confident and in control of your life. 

By fostering an interactive and collaborative setting during our sessions, I can help you feel comfortable taking an active role engaging and addressing the difficult symptoms, thoughts and emotions you are dealing with. When you develop new coping skills – such as mindfulness or deep breathing – you give yourself the resources and confidence you need to effectively manage challenges rather than giving into unhealthy compulsions and negative self-talk. 

I have been helping children, adults, families and couples in Southern California learn to understand and respond to challenges such as anxiety, depression and addiction. With the right guidance and support, you can develop practical skills to manage distressing thoughts and behaviors and foster a healthier relationship with yourself and others


Our culture and upbringing play an important role in shaping how we respond to personal challenges or behave in relationships. As an Armenian child born in the U.S., I have seen firsthand how different experiences and perceptions can change the way we interact with people and engage with the world. Growing up within two different cultures helped me recognize at a young age that the barriers to happiness and connection that so many people experience can appear much smaller when you view them from a new, larger perspective 

As I got older and continued to embrace new experiences, I gained further insight into how individuals and couples think and communicate. Helping friends and family understand their challenges, build self-esteem and improve their relationships felt natural and fulfilling. I loved helping people see their situations in a new light, and I wanted to learn more about why people struggle and how they can manage or overcome the difficulties in their lives. So, eager to help others develop confidence and meaningful connections.

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and the clinical coordinator at College Medical Center, I have substantial training and experience helping children, adolescents and teenagers, foster youth, families and adults manage a variety of personal and relationship challenges. I recognize that everyone experiences and copes with issues such as substance abuse, grief and loss, depression and anxiety in their own way, and I tailor my work to your particular challenges and needs. No matter what difficulty you are going through, I can help you understand why you are struggling and develop practical, effective solutions.
