She’s been absolutely incredible. A very good listener. Challenges me in thought processes and gives me the ability to safely and confidently express myself. Very patient and adamant that people actively pursue bettering themselves.

Dr. Battu is the most caring and supportive therapist I have ever had. Not only am I able to see my value, she has also helped me regain the confidence in myself as well as confidence in my decisions. I feel more empowered and in control of my life. She doesn't just listen, she gives feedback and offers any resources necessary to help with your needs. One thing I have learned is that you have to do the work to get results. Dr. Battu has helped me re-shape my mind into what I always thought I would never be able to accomplish, she has helped me better understand myself and my limits. My relationships outside of myself have improved greatly while working with her. I am able to believe in myself and find a sense of calm in all aspects of my life. You will not regret taking the time to do the inner work with Dr. Battu, she is amazing and has forever changed my life.
