"Anyone can benefit from psychotherapy. No problem is too big or too little to discuss. Let's talk."
– Chamin Ajjan

Ditch the Dating Game, Find Real Connection
Transform dating and the often-fraught search for a fulfilling relationship into a fun, exciting adventure using mindfulness techniques and practices.
Every stage of the dating process, from finding someone to date, to developing a relationship, has its own particular difficulties. Seeking Soulmate will help you develop the most important benefit of mindful dating: the ability to let your genuine, most attractive self emerge. This is how real relationships with the actual staying power are formed.
Chamin Ajjan Psychotherapy is a boutique outpatient group psychotherapy practice dedicated to providing personalized, quality care and services to our clients.
As a psychotherapist, author, educator and supervisor, Chamin has seen how important comfort and connection are to the therapeutic process. Feeling judged, misunderstood, marginalized and minimized are themes that, if present, will impede progress. Bringing this awareness into each session, along with 20+ years of experience and extensive training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Sex Therapy, informs the way our clinicians approach therapy and the privilege of supporting you. Trained by Chamin, each psychotherapist has been carefully vetted and chosen because of their top tier education, exceptional clinical skills, warmth and commitment to social justice.
The mind and the body are one. We often rely on what the mind is telling us and ignore the wisdom our body is sharing with us. When we are aware of the mind-body connection we are more equipped to handle life’s challenges. Evidence-based mind-body treatments along with problem solving/skills building therapeutic approaches are used in our work with individuals, couples and groups.
We integrate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) with Mindfulness Practices and create a treatment plan collaboratively with you to achieve your goals. At times we may pull from other treatment models to tailor care and interventions to your individual needs.
Thoughtful and sensitive care is offered to those dealing with issues related to:
- Childhood Sexual Abuse Survivors
- Social Anxiety
- Sexual Issues
- Self Esteem
- Stress Reduction
- And more
Benefits of Psychotherapy
Learning from the past and living in the present can lead to inner balance, harmony with those around us, and effective solutions to problems. Cultivating awareness of your thoughts and behaviors allows you the opportunity to make better choices and be an active participant in your life.
Psychotherapy provides a safe, supportive and confidential way for people to cultivate awareness, effectively make changes in their lives and move past difficult periods. It can help you discover long lasting, and personalized solutions to your problems and bring about meaningful and positive change.

“I have looked forward to my weekly appointments with Chamin, and really value the guidance she gave me on how to manage stress and bad habits. I really appreciate her advice and think I am happier, healthier and stronger for it!”
“Chamin, words cannot express what you have done for me through this journey. Even though some sessions were very tough, having your ear and input without any judgments is beyond appreciated and priceless.”
