Marriage and Family Therapist, Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner, Educator

Hello and welcome. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of California, Somatic Experiencing® practitioner and SEI faculty member. I have a private practice in San Diego, California where I focus my work on providing individual and group case consultations to SE students at all levels. One of my greatest passions is making the SE curriculum more accessible and digestible and helping students integrate their learning into their work and life.

Over the past 10 years, I have assisted SE trainings at all levels with several faculty members as well as multiple post-advanced Master Classes with Dr. Peter Levine. This has deepened my understanding of the SE frame work and has prepared me well for my role as a teacher and for creating a classroom that is inclusive and welcoming to all students.

My professional career has spanned 20+ years and included working for various non-profit organizations, offering therapeutic services to school aged children and their families, providing trauma healing treatment to clients from all walks of life in my private practice, and volunteering for non-profit organizations in San Diego that offer resources to incoming refugees. I am originally from Tehran, Iran and the plight of the refugee population is near and dear to my heart. My family fled to Germany after the Iranian Revolution and a few years into the Iran/Iraq war. After high school, I immigrated to San Diego, where I now reside with my husband and two sons.

In my spare time I enjoy traveling, hiking and writing.
