Experience

I have over ten years of experience treating individuals, couples and families whom because of their difficult life circumstances experience turmoil and distress interpersonally and intrapsychically. I utilize various psychotherapeutic approaches that are tailored for each individual, couple or family. I am experienced in treating clients that are coping with variety of problems including but not limited to:​​​
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Anger
  • Infidelity
  • Pre-marital issues
  • Marital distress
  • Women's issues
  • Parenting 
  • Co-parenting issues
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Loss of a loved one
  • Divorce/separation 
  • Stress induced from work
               Many times clients will attend psychotherapy after feeling helpless and sad for a prolonged period of time. My goal is to help my clients heal their psyche and develop a good working relationship to meet my clients’ personal goals for therapy." 

- Dr. Negar Taslimi 
Prior to opening my own private practice, I provided therapeutic treatment to a diverse group of individuals, couples and families from various cultures and backgrounds for many years. I have worked closely with my clients to help them regain hope, restore motivation, improve their self-esteem and to move forward. I have helped families dealing with various presenting problems to create change or to reach acceptance of their life circumstances. I have conducted over thousands of hours of group psychotherapy on the following issues: chronic pain, parenting, co-parenting and anger management. The most exciting part of working with my clients over the years has been to see them create healthier and loving relationships with themselves and others. I also taught as an adjunt instructor at Alliant International University.
