Hi there! My name is Maryam and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in California. Throughout my clinical career, I have had the privilege of serving adults, children, and families from diverse backgrounds. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns, including depression, grief, stress and anxiety, relationship issues, parenting struggles, OCD and ADHD. I have also helped many people with histories of physical trauma or emotional abuse.
Sometimes people just need to talk to someone. My job is to provide a safe, comfortable and nonjudgmental place for you to express yourself. I believe people are always doing the best that they can. My goal is to support you through whatever you are going through, while also fostering your growth.
My counseling style is warm, collaborative, and direct. I believe in treating everyone with respect and compassion. At the same time, I bring curiosity and a sense of humor to my relationships with clients. My approach is solution-oriented and uses evidence-based tools like cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). I will tailor our treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
Change is scary! It takes time, and it takes courage. My goal is to provide an empathic and supportive, yet challenging therapeutic environment where we can explore and confront what lies between you and your goals. It is an honor to walk with you as you take a step toward a happier and more fulfilling life. I look forward to working with you!
