Farideh Farzamian, Ph.D., RCC

I have 20 years of experience providing counselling, parent education, consulting, and coaching. I am skilled at working with Adults, Teenagers, Couples and Families, helping people move towards emotionally, spiritually and psychologically well-being and balanced life. I am an emphatic listener who believes that my clients possess the inner strength, and wisdom necessary to feel empowered and have the capacity for change when given the opportunity, tools and guidance. 


My lifetime of learning, my education, and the opportunity to work in diverse fields have fostered my most important goal, the ability to help those in need. My global travels have cultivated my unique and sensitive understanding of different people, cultures and beliefs.
