Adrine Bazikyan, M.S., LMFT

Adrine Bazikyan, M.S., LMFT started her career when she first joined Valley Trauma Center as a rape crisis advocate 20 years ago. As a young therapist, she had the opportunity to work with the most vulnerable population, victims of sexual assault and domestic violence. From that point on, she started to do presentations, visit hospital settings to be with victims, provide individual counseling and crisis management, case management and participate in community outreach projects and presentations. Her learning continued and advanced when she earned
her Master of Science in Counseling and started her employment as a therapist associate with Trinity Youth Services. Her learning expanded through providing treatment to individuals suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety, poor body image and
relationship issues by using psycho-dynamic, existential, humanistic approach to treatment.

Soon thereafter, she became a Clinical Director and started her career in Leadership. She understood the importance of leading a group of professionals in an organization, at the same time creating a program that served best for adolescent boys on probation with various mental
health and substance abuse disorders. Additional leadership positions she held include Director of Clinical Quality Assurance, Utilization Review Analyst, and Quality Improvement Director with Penny Lane Centers, and The People Concern. Her work continued with auditors on a state level, ensuring that clinical treatment interventions were appropriate and adequate and met the Joint Commission, State, and Department of Mental Health standards.

These experiences of many years helped her understand not only her love for providing and helping others grow and thrive but also help other professionals advance personally and professionally. Adrine Bazikyan is currently pursuing a Ph.D. degree in Human Development to further her passion for knowledge and growth.
