Great to meet you!
Hi! I am the Clinical Director and Founder of Woodrose Counseling. I am a multilingual licensed mental health counselor fluent in Gujarati and second generation South Asian American. My experience working with adults from diverse backgrounds and age groups in community-based and outpatient settings informs my culturally sensitive approach to treatment.
A bit about my approach to therapy
I believe that therapy is an opportunity to explore our struggles in the context of our past experiences and patterns while in a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental space and developing more effective ways of navigating them. My philosophy is that therapy is a collaborative place for finding support in healing, developing self-awareness and working towards your goals. I utilize an eclectic approach drawing from psychodynamic, person-centered, and cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT).
What you can expect from our first session
Therapy is a collaborative process providing an opportunity to bring awareness to how past experiences are affecting current struggles. In our sessions together, we will work towards identifying your goals and meeting your needs while working on healing, developing self-awareness, and practicing self-compassion. I will provide a safe space for you to feel emotionally supported while also helping you challenge unhelpful patterns in order work towards change. I look forward to meeting you!
