About Manya Khoddami

If you have never been to therapy or have had an unpleasant prior experience, it can be difficult to seek help. Yeah, it is not easy to share your deepest most vulnerable life stories with a total stranger, and this is why finding a right person is very important; research has shown that the person of the therapist is almost more important if not, as important as, the therapist's training and experience on the outcome and success of therapy.

Life's journey can become challenging without a warning, loss of job, death of loved one, divorce, parental conflict, life and developmental transition, school and work demands can become overwhelming and when feeling down, seeking help can be even more difficult. When the dark moods linger for more days than not or they keep on returning, it is important to talk to a professional. If you feel like you have lost reasons to go on, feeling stuck and drained of life energy, please contact a Licensed professional.

Life is meant to be lived not just tolerated. In the demanding world, we live in, it is easy to lose control of our footsteps and be swept by the currents of life's demands. living in constant anxiety or with negative mood can quickly deplete your life energy. Whether you are suffering from a chronic emotional issue or have a recent negative life experience, there is no shame in needing help.

I am passionate about helping people to find their inner power and passion for life. I believe everyone can have a chance to find happiness despite what their life circumstances may be. It is my personal and professional goal to make a positive change in the world, in my professional practice, I plan to do that one person at a time. I work collaboratively with you to uncover issues that are holding you back from finding happiness. Therapy is journey while not every moment of it may be pleasant, with adequate engagement and interaction therapy can be transformational, I know because, I speak from personal and professional experience.

Unfortunately I don't accept insurance, but to make my services accessible, I have a limited space to accept clients on sliding scale.
