THE BASICS

My name is Soad Tabrizi and I am a licensed marriage and family therapist. I am also a mental health counselor, reiki master, certified integrative mental health professional, certified addiction specialist, and certified suicidologist. I've been in the field of mental health for 15 years.

THE BACKGROUND

Back in 2004, I provided Bible studies at the juvenile halls in Santa Clara County, CA. I knew then that there was more to give to people. I knew that beyond the Gospels, people needed healing. That’s when my journey began.


I was led to attend Western Seminary for graduate school. I obtained my Masters in Marital and Family Therapy and graduated Cum Laude. My internship hours consisted of working with individuals in the criminal justice system, hospitals, agencies and schools. I started my private practice shortly after graduating in 2010. 


Since being licensed in 2014, I have had the opportunity to work with a wide range of individuals, families, couples, adolescents, addicts, codependents, geriatrics, students and inmates.
My private practice is now 100% Telehealth. I am licensed in California, Florida, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Utah, Virginia and West Virginia. However, I provide counseling sessions to anyone in the world. 

 

I am certified as an Addiction Specialist from Western Seminary and a Psychological Autopsy Investigator (Suicidologist) from the American Association of Suicidology. I am a Reiki Master trained through the International Center for Reiki Training. I'm also a certified Integrative Mental Health professional - a fancy title meaning I look at the whole body system to help a person find peace and possibly heal from mental health discomfort. 


I work with the whole person: mind, body, soul and spirit. I am in the unique position to incorporate energy work and examine a person's daily nutritional intake to support a healthier and well balanced lifestyle. 


I am physically located in Orange County, CA. I love my work. I love what I do. I love being a light and guide for those that need it.

REALITY BASED TREATMENT

I understand that the latest trends and social justice demands can drive people to seek treatment. Here in this space, all ideas are welcomed; however, the foundation in which treatment begins is based on reality and truth. Feelings are fleeting, but actual facts and truth are impenetrable. Sessions are built from facts and we explore how your feelings can exist within the frame work of our reality.

A WORD ABOUT ME

It can be difficult trusting a complete stranger with your values and beliefs. Seeking treatment is scary and one of the most vulnerable things a person can do. At times, it helps knowing a Therapist's beliefs to help you feel more at ease with sharing - it removes a layer of anxiety at the onset. Because of this, I have listed for you a few of my beliefs that are prudent to today's culture. 

Please note: if you do not agree or hold the same beliefs, it does not mean I won't accept you, work with you or respect your beliefs. These are listed merely to help those individuals that have been harmed by other Therapists for their beliefs and/or are afraid that their Therapist might unfairly judge them. 

Always seek treatment from the person you feel connected to, not just based off a recommendation. My consultations are always free for this exact reason: to make sure you are comfortable with me and that I can help you.
