Hello! I’m Sahar and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT #111456) and Doctoral Candidate practicing in Orange County, California. I provide therapeutic services to individuals, couples and families to assist in treating relational issues, anxiety, depression, loss, grief and transitional phases of life. I’ve worked extensively with clients from diverse backgrounds and in varying stages of life, from ages 4 -94. I am so grateful for the opportunity to join you on your journey towards creating space for hope, strength and lasting change.
My specialties include: transitional phases of life, maternal mental health, anxiety and depression, loss, couple & relational issues. I have worked with women and men facing the challenges that come with infertility, loss, adoption, pregnancy, and the changes that occur with entering into parenthood. I am passionate about helping women re-establish a sense of self in addition to the roles we take on as partners, mothers, sisters, and friends. In order to nurture those around us, we must first nourish ourselves.
I truly believe that every person’s treatment should be mindful of their specific features and needs. We are all unique beings and addressing our mental wellness should be guided by each individual. My hope is to always work with clients to create a collaborative space where we can come together to support the most positive outcomes for each individual person.
Thank you for taking a moment to look around here. I look forward to meeting you.
