About Me

Welcome! My name is Golshid Fadakar, also known as Goldie. I’ve been working in the counseling profession for the past seven years.

I have obtained a diverse clinical experience through working with individuals with eating disorders and substance abuse/dependence.

I have provided individual, group, and family therapy with adolescents, adults, and geriatric individuals at an eating disorder treatment facility. I have a strong understanding of inpatient, partial hospitalization, and intensive outpatient treatment services. I’ve also provided therapeutic services to adolescents and their families in a residential substance abuse treatment facility.

I possess a school counseling credential and have provided academic counseling and clinical services to K-12 students in the Los Angeles County area. Furthermore, I have worked in higher education providing academic and socio-emotional counseling to graduate students.

I have a strong background working with adolescents, adults, and families in various clinical areas. I’ve also had experience working with individuals, families, and couples with depression, anxiety, PTSD, trauma, relationship issues, self esteem, and LGBT concerns.

Due to my experiences working with individuals from diverse ethnic backgrounds, it is imperative to me that cultural competency is acknowledged and promoted.
