As a therapist, Parisa truly understands how to equip you with the tools you need to deal with life's challenges. She is unwavering in her support and it is without a doubt that our therapy sessions are the main reason I got through the toughest time of my life. During our sessions I always feel that she is actively participating in my own healing and that by the end I have a sense of direction and purpose. My personal motive for seeking therapy was that I hit rock bottom and things got real and I knew I needed professional support. My depression, anxiety and self doubt were unmanageable, but it was my addiction to drugs and alcohol that had spiraled my life out of control. And looking back I am fortunate to have found a therapist who committed to embark on the journey with me. I always feel that she provides a safe environment where I am free navigate past experiences with her. Parisa offers genuine connection, strong wisdom, and encouragement. I am now one year sober, and I have Parisa to thank for empowering me to take control to begin to heal and grow.

She is very nice, knows her stuff and her techniques and advice are spot on. She is able to identify your issues right away and provides realistic solutions that you can incorporate and begin to work on if you are patient.
My visits with Parisa have truly been life changing. Prior to my first visit, things for me were much more of a struggle. I struggle with anxiety and depression. As a result, I have experienced challenges in my professional and personal worlds. However, Parisa has been nothing less of a phenomenal therapist and human being. She has helped with accepting myself as well as aiding me in the importance of learning self compassion. Thanks to Parisa, I feel I am learning to be the person I needed when I was a little girl. I am learning how to be confident in both personal and professional worlds. I am forever grateful for finding her and I am eager for future sessions.
