Hi! My name is Alek Koundakjian and I am beyond excited to be a part of the Teen Therapy Center team!
I have always approached therapy with an emphasis on patience and empathy. Prioritizing the foundation of one’s experience, I take time to focus on rapport through getting to know clients and doing my best to see life through their lens.
I enjoy working with all populations. Being a part of the LGBTQ+ community myself, I have experience working with adolescents exploring their identities. Being a teenager can be tough. I am passionate about helping clients develop the tools necessary to navigate adolescence and young adulthood.
I’m a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (A.M.F.T.). I received my M.A. in Clinical Psychology with an Emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from Pepperdine University. Prior, I obtained my B.A. in Sociology with a minor in Child and Adolescent Development from California State University, Northridge.
