Hi, My name is Farimah Khalilifard and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California. More specifically, I am someone who sparks change in people’s lives and relationships. I have over 20 years experience working with individuals and couples with relationship issues, addiction and mental health challenges helping them grow, be in control of their emotions and making positive changes in their lives.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session, I will start with obtaining history of presenting problems to collaborate with my clients to created an individualized treatment plan to work throughout the course of treatment.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I support individual, couples and families in exploring their history and uncovering patterns they may not be aware of so that they can begin to have more control over their emotions and building healthier relationships with themselves and others.
