Psychological Services


Dr. Yarian’s pragmatic and solution-focused approach to psychotherapy blends family  systems therapy, psychodynamic and interpersonal methods, and cognitive-behavioral therapy. His style is warm and supportive, and feedback is given where appropriate.

Sex Therapy and Sexuality Counseling

Conditions treated include low or no desire, painful intercourse, male erection difficulties and premature ejaculation, orgasmic difficulties for men and women, recovery from sexual abuse, compulsive sexual behavior (sexual addiction), sexual identity issues, and gender dysphoria.

Tantric Sexuality Education

Tantra is a meditative approach to sexuality. It offers the practitioner a deeper, more profound experience of his or her own sexuality, and provides powerful tools to deepen the intimate connection between partners.

Clinical Supervision of Psychotherapy

Dr. Yarian has provided private clinical supervision and training to mental health professionals for over twenty years. His creative and engaging approach offers support, challenge, deepening understanding of clinical work, and enhanced confidence on the part of trainees and supervisees. He is on the staff of the Vanderbilt University Psychological and Counseling Center, where he supervises practicum students, Pre-Doctoral Interns and Post-Doctoral Fellows.

Consultation with Businesses, Hospitals and Non-Profit Agencies

Human systems are complex; unclear agendas, lack of support and communication difficulties often hamper business functioning and reduce productivity. Dr. Yarian offers management consultation and coaching, staff support and training, and on-site workshops on relevant topics for your business or agency.
