Susan Genie Chakmakian, MA, MFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Glendale
Are you stressed and overwhelmed by difficulties with relationships, your job, your purpose in life? There is hope. Through a collaborative process, I will support you in uncovering the emotional truth of your struggle, which will reduce stress and lead to change and healing. I believe that deeper understanding of yourself can create more love, acceptance and peace. Finding new and better ways of dealing with your conflicts may be challenging at times, but it's time to start feeling better and the rewards are worth it.
As a musician, I have particular insight for artists and musicians. I specialize in fertility and adoption. I have particular understanding for Catholic clients, but work with all religions and spiritual beliefs. With all treatment, I approach clients sensitively and with respect to the uniqueness of their situation.
I divide my time between therapy, mentoring students and MFT interns, and making music. Special rates for Interns and therapists wanting a therapist. Interns avail for a lower fee; including Armenian and Russian speaking. I accept credit cards.

Susan Genie Chakmakian's Groups

Therapists in Training Process Group

FYI - ON A BREAK! Being an intern/trainee can be emotionally stimulating at the least! And while it's important to work through your counter-transference with clients, and learn about your own relationships, it may be an expensive prospect while you are interning. A group may be just what you need. Get support from your peers and guidance from someone who has been there. 300 hours in 100 hours! Led by Susan Chakmakian, MA, MFT I have a waiting list of interns who have various times available. If you email me, let me know your availability.
