My name is Shideh Sarmadi, I am a licensed professional counselor in State of Virginia. My goal is to empower clients to change their lives in a positive manner by focusing on recovery and welfare and promoting healthy personal growth. This typically is accomplished by improving the way you cope and interact with your environment. I have worked with a variety of issues including marital and family dynamics, blended families, parenting and co-parenting with a concentration on cultural influences. I also helped individuals with mood disorders, adjustment challenges and chemical dependency problems.
My 20 years of experience in the Mental health field and command of two languages have enabled me to effectively understand and relate to clients from all walks of life. This includes 15 years providing outpatient therapy setting working with infants, children, adolescents and adults, in individual and group settings as well as couples and family counseling.
