LICENSED PROFESSIONAL CLINICAL COUNSELOR
"What a powerful experience to have the realization that nothing in the environment, circumstances or other people needed to change in order to feel complete, whole, at peace and satisfied. It is like coming home to one's self, awakening to a feeling that had long been forgotten."
-- Xavier Heditsian
Typical Offices &Hours
In a nutshell
When I meet with clients for the first time I often ask them the question "How would you know counseling was working for you?" Commonly, the client will begin to discuss a different experience they would like to have in their life. This may be in a relationship, career stressors, a life transition, loss/grief or experiencing overwhelming emotions like anxiety, depression, loneliness, guilt, or fear. Answering this question helps us to gain clarity about what you want to experience in your life and begin the process of bringing it to fruition. My mission is to best serve your needs, help you to heal the past and move toward your vision for the future. I provide counseling and coaching to individuals, couples and families.

What it's like to work with me
My approach to counseling is very experiential in nature. This means that in our time together we will work to create a shift in your experience that will provide you with a new possibility and a tangible change to occur in your life. Clients have reflected that the most rewarding part of this work is the shift they experience in the way they feel, think and interact both with themselves and others. I have found that merely giving clients more information is not helpful. Rather, the insight, intuitive knowing and resources needed to experience change are located within each client. I believe clients are the experts on their own lives and my work focuses on helping clients to reconnect with and access this within themselves.
My work with couples focuses on creating a context and a space in which couples can heal together and grow together. My role with couples I work with is twofold. First, I am committed to creating a safe and nurturing environment for couples to express themselves openly and honestly. Second, I serve as a guide and facilitate a series of experiences with you and your partner that allows for greater connection, understanding, communication, trust and intimacy. Sessions tend to be experiential and dynamic in nature. This means that we will focus on the here and now to get underneath the repetitive patterns that have couples feeling frustrated, stuck and hopeless. Couples report that what is most transformative is how what is worked on in session gets set into motion and becomes a reality in their everyday experience together.
My style and personality
I draw on my experience with Positive Existential Therapy™, experiential therapy, solution-focused therapy, gestalt therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy and existential therapy to guide my practice. Additionally, I train in the martial art of Aikido and utilize my experience in Aikido to help clients build awareness, presence and a greater sense of inner peace and stability.
I enjoy a counseling/coaching relationship where we maintain a high degree of integrity, communication and openness. I believe empathy and understanding are essential for healing. I also find that my ability to build trust with clients and challenge them is vital for growth and learning.

Xavier's tip for dealing with fear of failure or perfectionism:
Purposefully make a "mistake." You read that properly... Intentionally mess up! It will open up a sense of emotional freedom that is liberating and exhilarating. I welcome you to try it and then discuss with me what you discovered.
