I’m an Iranian-Canadian based in San Diego and grew up in a family of health care providers. I learned the art of helping others by watching my parents serve their community with passion and care. I have always been eager to help others overcome mental health challenges and this passion led me to pursue my educational journey in the field of Psychology.
My educational and professional background in Psychology and Couple and Family Therapy have helped me gain a deeper understanding of the ways in which our wellbeing is influenced by a delicate interaction between our physical, mental and emotional wellbeing and our inner drive to balance these integral parts of ourselves.
