I am a Marriage and Family Therapist licensed in Texas and California with over 10 years of experience. I have worked with clients from all walks of life and a range of concerns including relationships and marriage (and non-traditional arrangements), depression and anxiety, PTSD and trauma, personal growth, self-esteem and self-worth, and LGBTQI+ issues. I have also helped many people struggling with substance use issues. In our sessions, we will work together to address the issues that have motivated you to come here, improve your life satisfaction, and find balance. You should contact me if you are ready for change.
We will collaborate to create healthy goals and I will help you to achieve them. My counseling style is warm, interactive, and empathic. I enjoy being genuine, direct, and believe that understanding is at the core of all the work we do together. I treat anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, and humanistic counseling and is tailored to your unique and specific needs.
My background: I grew up in Switzerland and moved to the US at age 22. I earned my Master’s degree from National University in San Diego, CA. I value diversity, different backgrounds, cultures, perspectives, and mindsets. Embracing and learning from others has profoundly shaped me and how I approach therapy and counseling.
I understand you are seeking support to feel better. I want you to know that taking the first step is a great sign of strength. Sometimes, even the bravest find it difficult to reach out for help and support. It takes courage, especially if you are new to counseling or therapy - so I am glad you are here!
I look forward to working with you.

I had recently gone through a lot of life changes, i.e. career change, breakup, moving out, and just picking up the pieces. It was a very difficult time for me emotionally, and he has been able to help me bring myself back together. I am feeling more like myself everyday. His warm and inviting approach makes talking and opening up to him so easy. This is my first therapy experience and it has really changed my life in how I look at certain situations in life. Would definitely recommend. 10/10
Only recently started with Armin, but he's been great so far. Warm, insightful, and attentive.
