Saman Mohseni, PhD
I was originally a business economics major at UC Irvine before realizing that I might be wasting my time and money (especially given that I could not manage to stay awake during the classes). I decided to change my trajectory to psychology, and the rest is history! I began my career working as an ABA therapist with children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. While I attended graduate school at Alliant International University, I worked in various community mental health clinics with children and adults coming from a variety of diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds. I feel that my prior experiences and successes with clients make me an effective clinician. I am bilingual and have provided therapy in Farsi; I found that implementing my linguistic skill set has significantly enhanced my ability to conceptualize clients through a cultural lens. I have been told that I am flexible and adaptable. I utilize a variety of clinical tools, evidence-based practices, and experiential techniques to engage my clients. I wholeheartedly believe that everyone has it within them to achieve their recovery goals and overcome their challenges. I look forward to continuing to enable and facilitate healing through my clinical work and guide others in their recovery.
