MER ZANDIFAR, MA, CHT
⚠️ COVID-19 UPDATE: Due to the California coronavirus shelter-in-place order, all counseling, meditation, and consultation appointments will take place by phone or online Monday-Friday until further notice. Thank you.
I'm Mer. As a mental health practitioner, I collaborate with bright, creative people like you who want to take their well-being to the next level and truly thrive in life.
I'm dedicated to listening to you and helping you learn skills to become empowered about your state of body and mind.
Mer has been one of the greatest catalysts of change in my life. For the last four years, I've brought my good, bad and ugly to her. Without a shred of judgment, she's been able to create awareness, identify blind spots and provide opportunities to heal. She has provided the space and energy for profound "ah ha" moments and true transformation. I cannot recommend her enough.
San Francisco, CA
Mer’s dedication to her clients shines brightly in the wealth of resources she provides, the environment she nurtures, and her passion for learning new tools to share with her community.
I’ve learned so much about attachment styles, non-violent communication, and setting healthy boundaries. All of these tools help me on a daily basis to have positive interactions and to approach the world with openness. She also has an extensive collection of guided meditations that she’s created which were a great introduction to a daily meditation practice.
I often tell people that, were I to write myself an obituary, Mer would be one of the top five people I would acknowledge as having contributed to the blossoming of my consciousness, my ability to mindfully approach life, to feel my emotions, to manage stress, to tap into my internal wisdom and my highest self and to show up more fully for the people in my life.
GIVING BACK TOGETHER
When you invest in yourself at the Happiness Clinic, you're also giving back to people in need.
I believe that the pursuit of happiness is a human right. Everyone deserves a chance to thrive, and of course, this starts with basic needs, such as access to food, water, medicine, and civil liberties.
That's why I'm a big fan of Action Against Hunger, Direct Relief, and the American Civil Liberties Union. Both Action Against Hunger and Direct Relief provide medical aid, food, and clean water to malnourished children and entire communities dealing with poverty and emergencies. The American Civil Liberties Union defends and preserves civil rights while fighting against racism and institutionalized abuse, such as police brutality.
Each time you purchase services from the Happiness Clinic, I'll donate a portion of the proceeds to support Action Against Hunger, Direct Relief, and the ACLU. And 100% of profits from your purchases on our booklist will be donated to these non-profit organizations.
As part of this allyship mission, I offer reparations to the BIPOC community. Please view the private sessions page to learn more about these offerings.
