Naira was very easy to talk to, empathetic and offered various way to grieve and cope. I didn’t feel judged and she listened to me during one of the hardest times in my life. She also sent resources and checked in with me.

I have only had a couple sessions with Naira Karapetyan, but am very excited to keep working with her! After going through 3 other therapists she makes me feel understood, listens and offers support, tools and resources. She is extremely professional while still making me feel comfortable.

I've had a few therapists in my life, for varying reasons. Naira has been the best and more considered of them all. I feel heard and affirmed, while I also create space for her feedback or ideas. The homework has been relevant and helpful. Her questions have been apt.
With some therapists, I've worked to find the value in the enterprise. With Naira, the value has been there since the start.
