As a southern California native, Haleh has always had a deep connection to mother nature – on her spare time you can find her at the beach, on a mountain, or on her mat. Haleh completed her undergraduate training at UCLA, with a B.A. in Psychology and a minor in Anthropology, on a full academic scholarship. She then earned her M.A. in Clinical Psychology at Pepperdine University’s Graduate School of Education and Psychology, and completed her doctoral level coursework at Azusa Pacific University. Haleh’s professional training and work experience have provided her the opportunity to conduct therapy and neuropsychological evaluations for children diagnosed with a variety of disorders including autism spectrum disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and intellectual disability. Since high school, Haleh has also worked as a tutor, academic coach, and school counselor, working with ethnically and culturally diverse children, adolescents, and young adults. These unique and gratifying experiences introduced Haleh to her passion of working with children and their families to better facilitate their growth and healthy development. As an avid yoga practitioner, Haleh recognized the benefits yoga played in her own life, inspiring her to complete her 200-hour teacher training through Pure Yoga, Equinox in the fall of 2017 and went on to complete the mini yogis foundational teacher training in 2018. Ultimately, Haleh would like to merge her passions of psychology and yoga to develop her non-profit organization for inner-city youth.
