After completing clinical internship at Temple University Hospital and graduating with my PhD in Clinical Psychology from the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. in 2007, I moved to Az to serve on the faculty of Argosy and Midwestern University (MWU) Clinical Psychology doctoral programs from 2007-2010. I completed postdoctoral training at the MWU multidisciplinary clinic, where I helped to set up the Psychology clinic. In ’09, I became licensed to practice independently in Arizona and began work as Home-Based Primary Care Psychologist for the Phoenix VA Health Care System, where I continue to serve our nation’s veterans.
Since 2009, I have also maintained a part-time private practice, where I extend specialized behavioral weight management services for weight loss services and psychotherapy. In 2014, I became the first board-certified psychologist in Behavioral & Cognitive Psychology in Arizona, and in 2016 was asked to serve as the Early Career Ambassador for the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP) in Az.
I offer services in English & Farsi and since 2010 have led the year-long diversity didactic seminar to psychology interns at the Phoenix VA, while also chairing the Psychology dept. diversity committee. Since 2009 I have served on the Professional Advisory Committee for NotMyKid, past Chair of the Diversity and Membership Committees & Diversity Representative to the Arizona Psychological Association (AzPA), and currently continues in my role in AzPA leadership as the Membership Representative to the Governing Council. I am honored to serve my clients and the community.
