afshar, Psy.D.

Hello there.
I'm Dr. Negar Afshar

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

I've always been passionate about working with children and appreciate the opportunity to make a difference in an individual's life from an early age. I hope to provide the space, comfort, and time for children to foster their resilience and thrive to their full potential. I pride myself on being relatable, while also offering the guidance and expertise that parents hope for. 

In addition, I feel empowered in helping adolescents and adults who crave guidance as they navigate the transitions from childhood through the different phases of life. My therapeutic approach is personalized to meet each client’s needs while focusing on principles from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Family Systems.

I hope to provide a comfortable, culturally sensitive, and secure environment to focus on your strengths while reaching your therapeutic goals. To accommodate busy schedules, I offer flexible appointments including evenings and weekends and look forward to meeting you and being a part of your therapy journey!

I specialize in child-centered play therapy, art therapy, and conduct affordable and accessible assessments focusing on  Autism Spectrum Disorders and ADHD.



My perfect day starts with coffee and affirmations!
The beach is my happy place
I’m a huge basketball fan (go Lakers!)
I have a huge sweet tooth
my name means “sweetheart” in Farsi
