Hengameh Roohi, PhD

Licensed Psychologist , PSY24259

I enjoy working with both adults and adolescents. Of the adults, many struggle with dissatisfaction in the midst of success. They see their life as good “on paper”, but still, they feel emptiness, or a lack of clear direction or purpose. For some, this looks like chronic anxiety, or symptoms of depression. Others struggle with compulsive shopping, eating, or substance use.

Relationships are important to my clients. Some have difficulty connecting with their partner, or feel a lack of belongingness with their friends or family. Many struggle with disconnection from their loved ones, their lives, or themselves. I help them to overcome barriers to connection, so that they can find more fulfillment.

I also work with adolescents (15+) who may have academic difficulties, or “acting up” in school, or who engage in self harm. Like many teenagers, they are struggling to figure out who they are and who they want to be.

My approach

I am trained in both Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and psychodynamic therapy. This means that I think about your challenges from multiple perspectives. I try to help you not just fix the pressing issue of the day, but also, to make deeper, more lasting changes.

As someone who immigrated to the US at the age of 21, I know what it feels like to adapt to a new culture. My multicultural and multilingual background allows me to provide you with a broader perspective on your world.

Why I love this work

I believe that we are continuously transforming, but at times we face impediments to growth. I see therapy as a way to cultivate insight. When you understand yourself, you can overcome challenges and reach your full potential.

What I want for you

I want to help you transform your life, and achieve the goals you care about. I feel passionate about helping you find more satisfaction in life.

My specialties, background, and personal interests

My specialties include working with clients experiencing anxiety, stress, depression, and multicultural issues. I have a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology with post doctoral training in Neuropsychology. I believe that creativity is an essential substance of our soul. I love to play the cello, and take part in all types of expressive arts.
