About Dr. Esfahani

My educational background includes a B.S. in Psychology, a M.S. in clinical psychology, and a doctorate in clinical psychology (Psy.D) from California Southern University. My work experience encompasses extensive experience in mood disorders, anxiety, grief and loss, trauma, multi-substance abuse disorder and assisting with periods of adjustment. I help my clients to find healthy perceptions of themselves and strengthen their relationships that would eventually improve their overall well-beings.

I am aware that no single approach is the right one for every individual, and so I have been trained in a range of modalities including cognitive behavioral therapy, psychodynamic theories, grounding techniques, mindfulness meditation, and attachment-focused therapy. I have provided both individual, couple, and group therapy to a wide range of individuals. I feel therapy is a journey shared by therapist and client and I strive in creating a safe and inviting space for you to comfortably embark on this journey.

A strong mind results in a healthy and happy life and I want to be the person that helps others achieve that. My training is deeply rooted in cognitive behavioral therapy, psychodynamic therapy and motivational interviewing. I will utilize techniques that explore your thought process, emotions, and behaviors to assist you in reaching your goals. When working alongside me in treatment, your goals are the utmost important. In therapy, I am supportive to my clients and strive for collaboration.

Furthermore, I have a distinctive interest and expertise in working with culturally and racially diverse individuals.
