About Bahar Moheban, M.A.
I offer individual and group therapy for adults and adolescents with disordered eating, body image concerns, and comorbid mood or anxiety disorders. I have provided mentorship to individuals seeking eating disorder recovery and have facilitated support groups focused on improving body image. My research experience includes investigating the role of culture and family on disordered eating, which I aim to incorporate into my work with clients. Other areas of emphasis in my training have been with adults presenting with a range of psychosocial obstacles, including identity development, life transitions, relationship concerns, depression, and anxiety.
I am a registered psychological assistant in Torrance under the supervision of Dr. Nazanin Moali (PSY 27951). I am completing my final year as a doctoral student at Alliant International University, Los Angeles, where I am pursuing my doctorate in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Health Psychology. I earned my Bachelor of Science in psychobiology from UCLA.
My Approach to Change
I am passionate about helping individuals find meaning behind their struggle with food, exercise, and negative body image, facilitating their understanding, and guiding their development of adaptive coping skills for emotional regulation. I intend to provide a space of empathy and nonjudgment for clients to process and gain insight regarding their innermost thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, including those that may be outside of their awareness. I aim to collaborate with the client to form realistic and attainable treatment goals towards an improved quality of life. I look forward to being part of your journey towards self-discovery, clarity, and fulfillment
