Chamin Ajjan Psychotherapy is a boutique outpatient group psychotherapy practice dedicated to providing personalized, quality care and services to our clients. Our mission is to utilize evidence-based treatment proven to bring about a successful outcome to people from diverse and varied backgrounds. It is our belief that psychotherapy is for everyone. That is why we are devoted to providing a competitive sliding scale rate for clients with low to moderate incomes that are in need of treatment.
As a psychotherapist, author, educator and supervisor, I have seen how important comfort and connection are to the therapeutic process. Feeling judged, misunderstood, marginalized and minimized are themes that, if present, will impede progress. Bringing this awareness into each session, along with 20+ years of experience and extensive training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Sex Therapy, informs the way our clinicians approach therapy and the privilege of supporting you.
We value differences and a diverse practice, servicing clients from all backgrounds, communities, incomes, and walks of life. Working collaboratively with our clients, we to teach them the tools they need to be successful in and out of treatment.
It is our belief that the client is an expert on who they are. Together, with our training and knowledge of human behavior and psychology, we work to build a genuine therapeutic relationship with our clients to achieve their goals.
We all have the ability to overcome adversity and make long term changes. By offering caring, compassionate and thoughtfully planned assistance of sufficient depth and length, we can work in harmony to achieve balance, solve problems and build needed skills.
Using mindful presence and an evidence-based, clinically skillful approach is central to the work we do.
We truly value the courage and willingness it takes to for our clients to engage in self-exploration.
The stigma around mental health has disenfranchised too many people and communities. Wellness is a priority!
We believe in the fundamental “goodness” in people who look to make positive change in their lives and environment. We live in a fast paced, challenging world and can lose sight of who we are when presented with stressors and losses. Psychotherapy can help you get back to who are and who you want to be.
Learning from the past and living life in the present can lead to inner balance, harmony with those around us and effective solutions to problems. Being “mindful” or cultivating awareness of your thoughts provides you the opportunity to make better choices and allows you to be an active participant in your life.
Human beings are resilient and have an innate ability to heal and transform their lives.
The way we think affects the way we feel, and the way we feel affects the way we behave. Getting acquainted with the “way we think” is necessary to make behavioral changes.
Everyone has the right to be valued, respected, seen and understood. Who you are and what you have experienced is important. We strive to create a space that encourages you to explore all parts of yourself, free of judgement.
