Paria Zandi Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist  #108933

I provide a safe, nurturing space for my clients’ unique healing journeys, taking a customized approach to each individual’s care. In addition to clinical training that all therapists must possess, I use a wealth of insight from my own personal, lived experience to help clients heal their past, let go of what no longer serves them, and invite in new levels of awareness, freedom, and joy. I relate to my clients in a unique way.  I am not the “blank slate” type of therapist who just sits back in the chair. My work with my clients is extremely relational, meaning that our therapeutic relationship, including my humanity in sessions, is a powerful component to your change.

I have over 5 years clinical experience working in community mental health, residential treatment, and college campus settings.  My specialties are in working with teenagers with emotional dysregulation, adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse and sexual assault, adults with PTSD and C-PTSD, bipolar disorders and those struggling with other emotion regulation issues. I utilize a number of therapeutic methods to deliver treatment, including EMDR, DBT, CBT, Mindfulness, Psychodynamic, and Narrative therapies to help my clients improve their relationship to Self and others.

I truly believe therapy is more than just about healing past wounds, managing symptoms, and diagnoses. I help clients do this, and so much more. I help clients tune into their power and help them elevate beyond the confines of a diagnosis or a label in order to build a life that feels worth living.
