About

My clinical philosophy is to approach you as a whole person and not just your target symptoms. Empathetic and thoughtful, I tailor a personalized, cutting edge treatment plan specifically for your needs and level of readiness. Although typically described as gentle and warm, I offer tough love too as I will hold you accountable as you work to confront your fears. Together we can uncover what is stopping you from living according to your values and help you to remove those barriers. Ultimately I will help you to achieve measurable progress toward your goals.
Dealing with anxiety, sadness, OCD symptoms, reproductive issues, or post partum depression can create guilt, shame, and isolation, making it more difficult to live a full and healthy life. I will teach you how to change your ways of thinking and alter the behaviors that are keeping you stuck.
As an immigrant from India, I am keenly aware of how culture and family values shape a person. Having lived in 2 very different cultures, I understand issues from both the complexity of the diagnosis and the cultural implications. Hence, I am sensitive to cultural issues when devising treatment interventions.

Tejal Jakatdar's Groups

GOAL support group for OCD for adults

GOAL group is a support group for OCD. It is not a therapy group. Clients find a support group for OCD really helpful to normalize and destigmatize their experience with the different themes in OCD. The group meets virtually every other Wednesday from 6:30pm - 8 pm PST. The group will be facilitated by one of our clinicians at Willow Anxiety and OCD. The group is free of charge. Currently, it is open to adults.
