Shiva Safari (she/her), MA
Registered Marriage & Family Therapist
My approach is grounded mainly in Emotionally-Focused Therapy, which is a non-judgemental and collaborative approach focused on how to create safety, trust, and confidence in your interactions with family members, significant others, colleagues, and friends. I also work with other solution-based models and tailor an approach that meets your needs. My specialty and area of focus with most of my clients is deep trauma inflicted by family of origin, society and relationships and the attachment injuries caused as a result thereof. If you feel that your anxiety and/or depression is linked to these experiences, I can help you confront and heal your wounds.
I welcome individuals (14 years +), couples, and families. I take a culturally-sensitive and affirming approach and work with clients with diverse identities, including cultural, ethnic, religious, and sexual and gender identities. You are the expert of your life and I am your therapist, our combination of strengths is the key to our work together.
I can offer therapy in Farsi, Italian, German and English. I also have a working knowledge of French.
