Headway

Dr. Nina Patel

It has been a privilege to walk along side others managing more complex psychological issues and trauma or just helping them talk things out. I am currently offering telehealth services to adolescents (ages 11 and up) and adults. I also work with couples, parents, and families.


My doctoral training and experience in the field for over 20 years allow me to work with a wide range of issues. I have worked in different capacities and settings including as an adjunct professor, supervisor of therapy/ testing, and a psychotherapist in hospitals, universities, and a military behavioral health clinic. I have extensive experience treating depression and anxiety, grief/ loss, relationship concerns, trauma, OCD, chronic health issues, infertility, adjustment/ self-esteem problems in children/ adults, substance use issues, and personal growth.


My goal is to blend evidence based treatment including cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and meditation with a warm, caring style. I like to take a holistic approach focusing all aspects of psychological, physical, and spiritual health. I offer culturally competent therapy- welcoming anyone regardless of sexual orientation, ethnicity, and religion. Together we can identify innate strengths and build coping skills to foster long-term wellness and resilience.
