How Does Therapy work?

The key towards transformation is to profoundly understand your Self and your story. Exploring your inner world and your history will put you back in the driver's seat and allow you to make empowered decisions from a place of awareness.

I want you to feel confident about your self, your relationships and life goals. 

Therapy is a salon, a fireside chat, the school of Socrates.

Engaging, casual, friendly. We are navigating life together. Human to Human! Some days are deep and other days we remember the humor and play is key to growth and not to take it too seriously. 

Sessions can be casual and flowing. It is perfect for people who are used to too much structure in their lives. We slow down and really allow the space together to become a beautiful synthesis of opening, revealing, curiosity and transformation.

I’m a champion for your fullest potential

What's my style?

People describe me as casual, friendly, encouraging, light hearted but direct. I'm your side kick and companion through the ups and downs, helping you see what you may not be able to see. Steady, balanced, grounded.


While I am always evaluating your progress and making adjustments, we allow the space together to be creative, free flowing and semi-structured, guiding you towards your desired goals but with openness and flexibility. We allow the unexpected to come up, which reveals hidden parts that need to be seen for transformation to begin. 

When working together, I pull from various modalities that I've studied, while catering to each unique person and circumstance :


Internal Family Systems

Buddhist Philosophy
Jungian Psychology

Somatic Psychology


Cognitive Behavioral

Mindfulness Based

Socratic Dialogue

Ritual and Earth Based Practices

All of You is Welcome

I know you have been through a lot to get here. Stress, anxiety and overwhelm from feeling out of balance. Confusion about how to navigate your relationships and build a life that feels fulfilling.

You long for a life that's full of purpose, meaning and excitement and are tired of feeling controlled by your emotions. 

I welcome all parts of you to show up to be explored and understood in an inquisitive and compassionate space.

Elements of the Soul....

Hoku”  translated from my native tongue (Armenian) means.. “of the soul”

Hoku Elements, in essence, translates to

​“Elements of the Soul”​

Hoku Elements is an invitation to explore and heal all aspects of the Self.

Grounding into the natural Elements of Earth, Air, Fire, and Water, the Soul has a place to express itself, to allow the body to heal and can thrive. Honor The Alchemist within you.​ 

Hoku Elements is the Mind, Body, Spirit continuum.

It’s the polarities of our Universe coming together.

The Logos embedded in the Mythos.

I welcome you to explore this continuum within yourself.
