About Dr. Fariba Sharifi, Psy.D.
I truly believe that everybody has the strength and ability to support their own growth and can change to have a better relationship with themselves and with others. We can develop a better relationship with ourselves by becoming aware of and accepting both our strengths and our weaknesses. When we begin to have a healthier relationship with ourselves and accept who we are, our relationships with others improve and our life as a whole improves as well.
I create a safe environment where we can explore your behaviors, actions, values, hopes and dreams. While I am here for you and will help you to heal and grow, I will also empower you to be able to help yourself so you can live an independent, fulfilling life.
I have a doctoral degree in psychology and I am grateful to have been working as a private practice therapist for over 18 years. I’ve had the privilege of working with my clients to help them heal and alleviate symptoms of depression, anxiety, PTSD, trauma, low self esteem, and much more.
I am well experienced and proficient in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Object Relation Therapy, and EMDR. After our first couple of sessions together, I will have a clear understanding of what you’re going through, what your goals are, and how to reach them.
I love people and I enjoy helping people grow. I get a great deal of satisfaction when I see people change, improve their lives, and become a better and happier person.
I have two office locations in Encino, CA and also in Santa Monica, CA.
