I support my clients to cultivate awareness and capacity to unwind from unhealthy thought and behavior patterns. I do this by drawing on their innate strengths and resilience. Collaboratively we learn to navigate challenging emotions and life transitions to rediscover aliveness, power, joy, purpose, care and a sense of connection. I bring dynamic qualities including curiosity, creativity and warmth into sessions for growth towards wholeness. My approach is guided by mindful awareness, honest inquiry and deep compassion. I am grounded in social justice, recognizing how social-historical factors impact well-being. I believe healing is a journey towards liberation.

I have extensive experience supporting a diverse range of youth, professionals, educators and change agents through issues including burnout, 'stuckness', anxiety, depression, dependence/addiction, chronic stress/fatigue and ADHD. I am especially committed to supporting men of color in navigating relationship, trauma, internalized oppression and/or intersections of identity (sexuality, ethnicity, etc).

I provide a unique, dynamic approach to traditional 'talk therapy'. One grounded in over a decade of practices in mindfulness and an ongoing commitment towards my own healing that include expressive arts, trauma-focused somatics and psychospiritual practices. I honor each person's unique path of growth and wholeness, and look forward to supporting yours.

Sarwang Parikh's Groups

detoxing masculinity: group for men of color

This facilitated weekly group will utilize a combination of psychoeducation, group process/discussion and experiential activities (mindfulness, trauma-release, expressive arts,etc) to explore our diverse experience as men of color. Part of our work as self-identified men of color is to unlearn and heal from the violence of systemic oppression, especially the toxic masculinity perpetuated by patriarchy. 'Toxic masculinity' is an inherently narrow and restrictive band of behavior, belief and appearance that often perpetuates harm to all genders. We will explore and re-define our relationship to healthy masculinity. Participants will need to have an initial interview for acceptance into this group.
