Sanam Bamshad, Ph.D.
I am a Clinical Psychologist with over 10 years of experience treating individuals, couples, and families. I work through a Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) framework. I view each of my clients as unique and thus their needs and presenting problems as unique. Therefore, I do not believe that one method or technique works for everyone. I strongly believe in collaboration, and transparency with my clients. I firmly believe that each clients is the best expert in their own lives and I see myself as an agent who can assist them in reaching the goals that they set for themselves.
I specialize in treatment of anxiety disorders, depression, and personality disorders. I am trained in evidence based treatments such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), as well as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). In addition, I am a trained Couples and Family therapist.
I have worked with many clients from diverse cultural and social backgrounds and myself have lived in different countries. I am familiar; both professionally and personally, with the challenges of moving to a new country and environment.
