Saba Harouni, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Board Certified Art Therapist

As a professional Marriage and Family Therapist with lived experience, I appreciate that searching for a therapist can be intimidating and uncomfortable. I’ve worked with adolescents and adults during tough periods in their lives and believe that when people feel heard and supported, they are better able to create the change that they seek. I work to create a safe, therapeutic environment where my clients can be authentic and open, and where they can ultimately feel safe to address the challenges that led them to seek help. I believe that a person can learn a great deal about themselves and gain valuable skills and insights during therapy. These skills and insights help clients find greater meaning and satisfaction from their relationships and in their daily lives. 

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or to hear more about my therapeutic style. You can reach me by phone at   323.388.5578 or by email at takeroottherapy@gmail.com. The first phone consultation is free. I look forward to speaking with you!

Being stuck doesn't mean it's all on you to figure it out. I offer to join you, in whatever you are experiencing, to build a supportive and trusting relationship. Working together we will formulate goals that work for you. Goals that are consistent with your personal beliefs to help you do more of what feels good and less of what doesn't. During our time together I will listen, ask questions, and strive to understand you and your life, without judgment or criticism. Whether you're expressing your feelings verbally or visually, I will use my specialized knowledge of relationship dynamics, patterns, families, personalities, and stressors to help you to make changes in your life. As a client-oriented and insight-oriented therapist, I will approach problems with respect for your choices and a strong belief that you are the expert of your own life. If you're ready to make some changes together, please don't hesitate to reach out and schedule a free consultation. We can be reached at (323) 388-5578.

Mindfulness is a central component of my therapeutic practice.  I see therapy as a creative space where you can imagine and manifest new possibilities. Using a mindful approach we will focus on the way you react and respond to the stressors in your life, helping you change what you can control and accept what you cannot. I work from a client-centered perspective, learning about you and the unique ways you learn and grow, to create a specific and practical plan that will help you reach your goals. I have worked with hundreds of people with diverse experiences helping them find balance in their lives. I have advanced training in the treatment of anxiety, ADHD, and addiction and specialize working with couples, LGBTQ populations, and individuals in creative fields who feel disconnected from inspiration or lost in their career/life path.

Feeling lost and overwhelmed can happen to anyone. Sometimes just naming how you feel can help. To me, the basic idea behind therapy is to figure out what feels good and do more of that and to do less of what doesn’t feel good. This sounds simple in theory but is definitely more challenging in practice! I’d like to be your support in this practice. The approach that I take to therapy is collaborative, conversational, and creative. I won’t pretend to have all the answers and don’t expect you to. I’ll listen and help you organize and clarify your thoughts with talk therapy and/or art therapy. My aim is to create a warm and empathetic environment where we can work together to name how you feel and from there create a plan for change. I have extensive experience working with young adults and children who have endured significant trauma. In addition, I have worked with families where I have created art experiences that help with communication and connection. My primary goal is to create a relationship that will allow you to feel comfortable to share and explore different possibilities.
