Meet Dr. K

Dr. K - The Guru of Glendale - Dr. Edward Kudaverdian

As an executive master coach, I’m dedicated to providing first class life coaching and providing training to passionate individuals who are committed to making a difference in the lives of others and ultimately the world. Being a Master Leadership Coach, I train and certify business executives and managers to reach their highest potential, and to coach their team members to achieve a higher level of professional and personal performance.

For many years, I have been helping people achieve their personal, professional and financial goals through my life coaching, executive coaching and CFA Training programs.

Today, in addition to being a guru, I’m giving people the support to become gurus themselves. With my program, I’m giving life coaches the support to get fully certified, and soon I will be offering certification in hypnotherapy as well.

Dr. K’s Legacy

Dr. Kudaverdian earned his diploma in Hypnotherapy in 1995. After that, he earned two Master of Arts degrees – one in Marriage and Family Therapy and the other in Organizational Behavior. Then, in 2002, he received his Doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology.  Dr. K is a certified Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Trainer as well as a certified instructor by the International Association of Counselors and Therapists, and the International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association.

In 1999, Dr. K established the Ark Family Center, Inc., a non-profit organization dedicated to serving the community with counseling, coaching, mentoring and educational services. The center provides a full range of services to families, youth, young adults and professionals. Dr. K’s goal is for the Ark Family Center to be the place youth and adults choose to go to in order to receive training and coaching when they want to make positive changes in their lives.

Beyond his coaching work, Dr. K has pioneered and published research into the “Effects of Genocide on Children of Survivors and their Own Offspring.” He also has conducted and published research about stress in an organizational environment and in his paper he has introduced new strategies and concepts of how to deal with stress.
