Payam Ghassemlou Ph.D.

As a licensed marriage and family therapist for over two decades, I have had the privilege of working with clients from different walks of life. These include but are not limited to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer/questioning, asexual (LGBTQIA+), people of color, and people from diverse religious and socioeconomic backgrounds. In addition, I have an interest and many years of experience helping professionals in creative fields to embrace their artistic gifts and fulfill their dreams.  Moreover, I am skilled at creating a safe therapeutic space along with providing caring and time-efficient therapy.
