I am an MFT, Marriage and Family Therapist who works with adults and couples struggling with anxiety, relational distress, self-worth, and sexual issues. I enjoy working with females looking to increase self-esteem and self-worth, and develop confidence in their sexuality. I am mindful of creating a safe and shame-free space for my clients and couples to explore their sexual issues, fears of intimacy, and vulnerabilities. If you find yourself feeling lonely or disconnected from the people that really matter, experiencing self-doubt and allowing fear to control your life then I can help. Clients reach out to me who are struggling with maintaining healthy boundaries with their family, friends or romantic partners.
I utilize my systemic training in helping clients identify relational dynamics within their family history that are continuing to impact their current relationships in unhealthy ways. I integrate evidence-based therapies into my practice, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness techniques. These approaches teach clients how to challenge self-defeating and distorted negative thoughts and create a more peaceful and authentic life. I work collaboratively with my clients to help them achieve better self-understanding, acceptance, and meaningful connections with others.
I immigrated to America at the age of 2 with my family from Azerbaijan and speak fluent Russian. Growing up in America as a teenager, it was a constant internal struggle trying to integrate the opposing cultural norms and beliefs of my family. I strive to be sensitive to my clients diverse and unique cultural backgrounds, beliefs, and sexual orientations. Do you hide significant parts of yourself from your family and friends, in fear of their rejection or judgement of your choices? With my personal and professional experience in practicing self-reflection and acceptance, I help my clients with overcoming family conflict and living in alignment with their true purpose. My approach is warm, humorous, and thoughtful while challenging you to grow. I will help you to develop the types of relationships that are fulfilling and that you deserve.
