The function of man is to live, not to exist!

Are you struggling with issues related to trauma, grief, addiction, anxiety, or major life changes? There comes a time when help is needed from a professional to cope with many of life’s challenges. Get help from a professional to support you on your journey toward healing and self-discovery.

Psychology has been an interest since attending my first year in medical school, no wonder why I chose to continue my career in psychiatry specialty at Iran University of Medical Sciences, one of the bests in Iran. After learning more about the profession, I developed a passion for counselling. Working with couples suffering from marital problems has motivated me to study various counselling methods and develop my expertise though I am still thirsty to catch more about it. I balanced my roles as an instructor, therapist and researcher at Zanjan University of Medical Sciences and Mehr Counselling and Psychotherapy clinic. While attending Beheshti Hospital, a teaching hospital of the university and provincial psychiatry hospital, I held guidance positions in several nursing or clinical psychology students' education. Collaborative work with other psychologists in Mehr Clinic boosted my experiences in applying different counselling and psychotherapy methods in individual or group therapy. As a research-minded soul, I have had an opportunity to enhance my knowledge by serving as a post-doctorate fellow at Harvard Medical School, Beth Israel Medical Center, for three years (2008-2011). This led to numerous scientific papers and book chapters for me.  Up until now, I have 205 citations into my 16 published articles and two book chapters, along with 119 research interests. I decided to pursue my efforts to follow non-biological approaches and neurobehavioral treatment methods in Autism or study more on psycho-educational strategies for the parents of affected ones.

Perhaps you're down or anxious - maybe you're unsure about the future of a relationship, or just feel that you aren't living the life you were meant to lead. Whatever your needs may be, a mental health specialist will help you. Therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery, and in the sessions, it promotes behavioural transformation by encouraging a positive outlook and the adoption of new attitudes and reactions. Psychotherapists and counsellors have tools and professional experience to help you get back on track.

بشنو این نی چون شکایت می‌کند        از جداییها حکایت می‌کند

کز نیستان تا مرا ببریده‌اند             در نفیرم مرد و زن نالیده‌اند

سینه خواهم شرحه شرحه از فراق         تا بگویم شرح درد اشتیاق

هر کسی کو دور ماند از اصل خویش     باز جوید روزگار وصل خویش

من به هر جمعیتی نالان شدم            جفت بدحالان و خوش‌حالان شدم

هرکسی از ظن خود شد یار من           از درون من نجست اسرار من

سر من از نالهٔ من دور نیست         لیک چشم و گوش را آن نور نیست

تن ز جان و جان ز تن مستور نیست    لیک کس را دید جان دستور نیست
