" I believe in a client centered approach that considers your pace. Therapy does not  mean you have to focus solely on painful events of the past and it does not have to be scary. Let me give you the tools you need to balance your life. Let me show you how to negotiate through the challenges you are facing and how to have a deeper, more present connection to your life."


 - Mahshid F. Hager, MFT

Everything comes to us that belongs to us

Welcome to my website.


You have now taken the first step into inquiring about the process of therapy. I hope that these pages will answer some of your questions and give you information about my approach and my experience.


I am a strong believer in therapy. To me, it is as much about taking care of your self as a regular medical check-up would be. Medical check-ups provide you a window into your physical health and therapy can give you a glimpse into your emotional well-being and provide you with tools to manage your emotional health.


If at this time you find yourself at a crossroad and are interested in meeting and finding out more about the process of therapy, I encourage you to contact me.
