Firoozeh Tuller, LMSW
Firoozeh Tuller is a Licensed Master Social Worker and psychotherapist. After years of founding and managing a successful business she followed her heart into this field to provide service and to help individuals and families on their journey to heal, grow and develop their full potentials. Her professional fees are scaled to fit the needs of all individuals.
Firoozeh received her master’s degree in clinical social work at the University of Houston. She completed her training at the Menninger Clinic working with individuals with complex psychiatric disorders such as mood disorders, personality disorders, PTSD, ADD, anxiety, self-harm, often co-occurring with substance abuse or addiction. She received her previous training at Interfaith Ministries working with the elderly population. Firoozeh will be working with the IOP Team, part of the Center for Integrative Healing.
In the past 15 years she studied psychodynamic treatment modalities, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, mindfulness-based treatment approaches, body-based treatment approaches such as trauma sensitive yoga, Buddhist psychology, meditation and eastern philosophies. Her therapeutic approach naturally strives to integrate all aspects of the human phenomenon: mind, matter and spirit.
She views treatment as a safe space where healing can occur through the process of unpeeling layers and layers of mental habit patterns (conscious and unconscious), and emotions, leading individuals to discover their strengths, true potential and authentic self. A space where one feels empowered and inspired to integrate all parts of self, even those hidden from the conscious mind. This delicate work is only possible when trust and alliance is established between therapist and client. The principles guiding this work are unconditional acceptance, compassion and non-judgment.
Firoozeh is an avid Vipassana meditator and attends 10-day silent meditation retreats, cultivating wisdom, insight and purifying deep mental defilements of the mind. She is a yoga instructor and practitioner. She is married and has successfully blended two families and raised four self-reliant, compassionate and insightful children. She understands experientially about the dynamics, challenges, and potentials of blended and stepfamilies.
