Behrooz's Testimonial

 

Hi my name is Behrooz. I am 33 years old and I have had depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder for most of my life. I was also sexually and emotionally abused when I was a teenager. The outcome of all these mental disorders and what had happened to me in the past was for me to have a life full of guilt, shame, sadness and loneliness.

Two years ago after many years of suffering from these mental disorders I finally had it. I realized that no matter how much I try I can never forget about my past and get rid of my mental disorders by myself. So I decided to get help and find a good therapist.

The few therapists I went to were no help. The main problem I had with these therapists was that since they were not Persian I didn't feel comfortable enough to open up to them and tell her about my past. I was spending most of my time telling them what the Persian culture is all about and that just wasn’t helping me. Also, they did not able to help me to open up too. So I decided to move on.

My next therapist was Dr. Teimoori who I was referred to by someone. As soon as I walked in I felt very comfortable and impressed with her knowledge about my issues. She was Persian and she understood the Iranian culture. She helped me to open up to her and tell her everything about my past and tell her all my dark secrets that had been hurting me all my life.

            For the next year and half we worked together to reshape my personality. Finally I was able to forget and forgive. I was able to say goodbye to my past and start living in the present and plan for my future. I started looking at myself and realizing that I am OK and it's OK to love myself for who I am.


           After a while my self-esteem was improved and I realized that I deserve to have someone special in my life. Dr. Teimoori and I worked together to find out what kind of a person am I really looking for as a wife. I opened my eyes and started searching for that special someone. Next thing I know I find a kind and loving beautiful Persian girl and I am now happily married to her. All I can say at this point is thank you Dr. Teimoori for helping me find happiness in my life. I couldn't do it without you.
