About

Welcome! My name is Krishna Desai, and I am a licensed psychologist (LP) and licensed specialist in school psychology (LSSP). I work with children as young as ten, adolescents, and adults from a variety of backgrounds. While my primary area of specialty includes the use of evidence-based practices such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), I also incorporate multicultural and family systems perspectives; an overall integrative psychological approach.
My primary focus and training is specialized in anxiety, depression, grief, transitionary phases, and parent consultation work for a variety of emotional, behavioral and learning difficulties. I additionally value work surrounding multiculturalism, diversity, identity formation, and self-esteem. I also provide consultation surrounding educational services.
I am curious to learn about your experiences which shape your perspective. I value relationships, transparency within them, and the ability to grow comfortable enough to offer my reactions and challenge you towards the growth and change you seek. With compassion, empathy, and humor, I hope to create a space that is safe, welcoming, and collaborative.
