Dr. Banayan’s statement on her clinical work:

“As a psychologist, I see therapy as an extremely personalized journey; a client-centered experience. I have passion for integrating neurobiological understanding into therapy in a concrete and accessible way for my clients to feel empowered in their own understanding of their actions and somatic responses. I strive to make therapy a safe place for emotional exploration, especially when you may not have felt that in your childhood or family of origin. I work with each client to build a personalized roadmap to achieve your therapeutic goals and dreams, making my work particularly welcoming to therapy first-timers. I hope to support each individual I work with to feel authentically connected to their own strengths and inner joy.”
