About

You may be emotionally, physically, or spiritually in a space in your life that you might describe as challenging, confusing, and/or uncontrollable. There might be different struggles, that somehow reflect a similar underlying process. Perhaps, one that involves fear, avoidance, escaping, 'trying so hard', and eventually feeling helpless. Though our struggles may differ on the exterior, the underlying process is what often reflects our perspectives and emotional health. Addressing vs resisting our challenges can deepen our confidence in our ability to work through them. Thus, creating the space for a calm and grounded experience.
I work with my clients from a collaborative theoretical approach that often leans on attachment-focused, person-centered, and culturally informed practices. My specialties are in the assessment and treatment of trauma-specific experiences, sleep concerns, and GI health. I work closely with clients within the tech-industry.
My goal at Kothari Wellness is to provide a safe, open, and non-judgmental space for you to share and explore your needs and gain tools to help you live a vital, compassionate, and grounded lifestyle. It is my hope that my support and guidance will provide you with the tools that will help you find clarity and balance.
