Aida has always been drawn to psychology and cultural anthropology but her true enjoyment comes from empowering people. By nature, she is enthusiastic and compassionate, which is evident in her approach to coaching and counseling.
Aida has been in practice since 2006 and specializes in couples counseling and stress management. She also works with 1st generation immigrants that are struggling to adapt to the lifestyle of the United States while trying to balance the expectations and obligations of their family. She has created very efficient and effective 10 week programs to improve relationships, relieve stress and aide 1st generation immigrants and their families. She provides high quality care with a focus on personalized strategies to empower her clients with the tools they need to make lasting changes. As such, her clients view her as part of their “support system” and feel very comfortable with her. According to Aida, “I value the trust my clients place in me."
A strong believer in a balanced lifestyle, Aida enjoys spending time with her loved ones, exploring health trends, and experiencing new cultures through travel. She studied at UCLA and the Chicago School of Professional Psychology with emphasis in psychology, sociology and cultural anthropology. She is fluent in Farsi and Spanish.
