Freedom of Mind and experience of Love in your Heart creates a fulfilling and extraordinary life

About Foojan Zeine

I am a Psychotherapist and a Marriage & Family therapy expert.   There is a yearning in each one of our hearts to live a fulfilled life, to be intimate with our mate, to feel connected to our self and people around us. Yet, so many times we find ourselves so far away from the person that we yearn to be and the person we love. Lack of communication skills, lack of having a healthy role model, Lack of awareness about all of the causes of our sabotaging patterns, and lack of integration of all of our inner parts creates obstacles from within and holds us from being intimate with our self and the ones we love.

My approach is to meet you, listen to your needs, wants and desires. Together we will determine whether therapy or coaching would be best suited for your needs. Determining your goal, we will walk together toward obtaining your goal. I will act as a mirror for you to see the parts of you that you have not been aware of, parts of you who have remained young and hurt due to childhood traumas, perceptions and/or decision makings. Healing the past will allow you to complete the past, become open to the present and choose the future from a new beginning. With many different interventions, you will learn techniques to become aware and identify your thought, emotional and behavioral patterns. Identify the patterns that work for you and the ones that don’t. Exploring new ways of being, thinking, and behaving that allows you to experience freedom from the unwanted thoughts and to feel the love in your heart, and to reach and maintain the fulfilling life that you want and deserve to have.

I have been a psychotherapist and a life/executive coach for over 25 years and have had to pleasure of working with a  diverse group from a variety of cultures.  I work with individuals and couples with what life brings to them in my offices in Irvine, Brentwood and Woodland Hills, California; and via Skype.  I am an expert in working with clients who are suffering from depression, anxiety, addictive behaviors, traumas, and relational problems.  I am the originator and the author for “Awareness Integration” psychotherapeutic model, a multi-modality approach and intervention toward minimizing Depression and Anxiety while improving self-esteem and self-confidence. www.awarenessintegration.com

Over the course of my career, I have been able to discuss my methodology and psychotherapeutic teachings in a variety of ways, including in the media, literature, and through presentations and guest speaking positions. For example, I host a live international satellite television and radio show “Inner Voice”, addressing psychological issues relevant to the general public, a frequent guest speaker at FOX news and KIRN 670 AM.  In addition, I was an invited guest on the Dr. Phil show in 2005.

My recent book "Life Reset- the Awareness Integration Path to Create the Life You Want" 201,  is a great self-help with step by step plan that leads you to a more fulfilling life.  My other published works include a chapter titled “Life Coaching” in “A Practice that Works: Tips and Strategies for your Stand Alone Therapy Practice”, 2005, and an article titled “Moving Away, Moving Toward – Immigration & the Acculturation process” in “Family Therapy” Journal Jan/Feb 2008 pg.26-27. Because of my comprehensive knowledge in Online Therapy, I was able to co-author “Online Therapy: A Therapist's Guide to Expanding Your Practice”, published by W.W. Norton in 2005.

I have been fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to present internationally and across the United States. I have been a guest speaker at many academic and nonacademic institutions, including UCLA, UCSB, USC, Aliant University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and Harvard University.

Through the past 20 years of meeting amazing people from across the world who are committed to their personal growth, I have seen the dedication that my clients have toward living their excellent self, commitment to living a fulfilled life, fully expressing love to their loved one’s, being emotionally balanced, being joyous in their intimate relationships, being a loving and effective parent, creating success in their career and work environment, and creating vibrant community.

Join me in discovering the next step for your growth.  I am committed to support and guide you toward all that is awaiting you for a life that you deserve and desire. 

Foojan Zeine Success Stories

An Emotional Cleansing

"The Awareness Integration Model has helped me to understand and accept all aspects of my psyche including the dark and shadow sides. It acted as an emotional cleansing for me. I learned how to experience my emotion and how to deal and manage them. Through this model I came back to my core self with love. I recommend this model for every one who wants to learn how to and come to terms with who they are within." ~ MMmore

 

My thoughts changed into clear words and plans

"I am very happy & thankful to take advantage of your “Awareness Integration Model”. Some of my thoughts changed into clear words and plans. And some dark (or sad) memories changed to be a normal part of my life. Overall, I feel more confident; have more love and respect for myself and believe in my talents ( blessings) much more than before. THANK YOU!" ~ H.M

One of the best experiences in my life

"I try to find words to explain my feeling and the result I got after therapy. It was one of the best experiences in my life. I tried every possible thing from forum classes to other therapists. This made me see everything and every aspect of myself even though I knew a lot of them myself but never this clear specially when I had to go to my childhood and see everything and compare them to the behavior that I picked to be, I totally get it. Recently I had an amazing experience. I was in this party and made a good comment about the ring that my cousin had on but she got a little uncomfortable for whatever reason in her head, If it was before I would be so embarrassed and thought its my fault and I never had to make any comment and the rest of the party would be like hell to me instead (it took me a while) but I went and talk to her and said what I said was a good thing and “Are you embarrassed of yourself or what” and she answered that I was right and she didn’t have to get irritated and not only I did not blame me but talked it out and felt better and the rest of the party I had fun. If it wasn’t for therapy I had hell for the rest of the night and blamed myself for being not appropriate. Anyways it was like a light in my whole darkness that I’ve had for 45 years and in 3 or 4 months during the therapy I feel I am a new human being. I don’t know how to explain this but just little thing like that (the party thing) maybe for other people is nothing but to me worth a lot. Thank you for being so smart and supportive during the sessions. Every single session for me was the new beautiful experience and I will apply them in every aspect of my life." ~ Love, F.

Feeling Happy and Full of Life

"Here is my feedback to the model you used to help me. I enjoyed working the model with you for several reasons:
1- It was easy to follow. It was very clear for me from the beginning when you explained how it works to follow it.
2- I got in touch with feelings I never knew existed.
3- I could release majority of my anger and frustration in a safe trusting environment.
4- I could see how my feelings effect my physical health.
5- I was comfortable sharing my feelings and thoughts because it was not needed to go into details of the past incidents that is very painful.
6- The model focused on my present life and behavior and on how to make it happy and joyful not the past. I was not pitied rather empowered to live a full life.
7- It helped me realize how I judge the way others think or feel about me which is not the reality.
8- It helped me know myself and what I really want. It helped me see myself as a person who has equal rights as everyone else.more

I have been feeling happy and full of life since we finished working the model. This has been the only successful and easy therapy I have ever had and I had a couple of therapist before who tried different methods. I always looked forward to my sessions with you because I could feel the difference immediately. Every time I left your office I was closer to myself." ~ Gratefully, EM
