Kavita Pallod Sekhsaria is not currently accepting new clients.
Do you feel like you could be a better, happier version of yourself? Do you feel like your life just isn’t aligned with where you want it to be? Are you feeling disconnected from your partner, or from others that are important to you? I have found that the benefits of therapy can be profound. The quality of relationships can improve. It can bring meaning and fulfillment to work. Confidence and self worth can abound.
I use a strengths based approach to work collaboratively with clients to understand their distress and its origins, to relieve suffering, and move towards healing and reaching their full potential. I believe my cultural and spiritual background ground my ability to approach therapy humbly and holistically with all clients.
I work to create a space that is safe, inclusive, and non-judgmental with warmth and humor, grounded in humility, a commitment to social justice, and cultural sensitivity. My goal is to create a space that enables you to lead the way on your journey. I have found that the benefits of therapy can be profound, and hope to help you discover them for yourself.
