About me

Hello! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 20 years of experience. I have worked with individuals in a wide range of settings from hospitals to private practice. I enjoy partnering with my clients to help create the life and relationships they desire. I provide a supportive, compassionate and non judgmental environment as well as an environment that fosters personal growth.

I am an eclectic therapist and use models such as cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy and client centered therapy. I will tailor our dialogue and treatment to one that will work for you. Together we look at how you may be able to change thought patterns and beliefs about yourself to create positive outcomes in your life. We can also look at how past and current experiences may be impacting you today and work towards resolving these issues. Some of the issues I have worked with include depression, anxiety, self esteem, relationship issues , family conflicts and multicultural issues. In addition, I am a Certified Clinical Anxiety Treatment Professional and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. I look forward to working with you on whatever is bringing you here today!

Deepa has really helped me deal with many issues! She is just Great!!

Written on Sep 17, 2022 after therapy with Deepa for 2 years and 4 months on issues concerning grief

Deepa has been incredibly helpful to me since the first day I started my therapy sessions. I instantly felt like she was welcoming, non-judgmental, patient, and respectful towards me. I felt comfortable telling her my thoughts and I found myself eager to hear what she had to say in response. She offers great insight, resources, and compassion throughout each session. She's always punctual and sends me worksheets in a timely manner. Additionally, as someone who is from a south asian culture, Deepa has always made me feel like she understands my way of thinking since she comes from a similar culture. My experience with her has been nothing but the best. I am so thankful to Deepa for helping me get through some hard times and for helping me reach my therapy goals. I would highly recommend Deepa to anyone who is looking to seek a therapist!

Ever since I've started my sessions with Deepa, I've noticed a significant increase in my happiness and motivation. She's sympathetic, understanding, and she implements different methods to improve your well-being. I don't ever feel like I'm being judged and there was an inherent understanding present with some situations I was experiencing. I felt like I changed for the better and I wanted to thank you for all the guidance!

Deepa has helped me so much in such a short time. This was my first experience with counseling so I didn’t really know what to expect. She has such a calm approach, which really makes me feel comfortable. I was able to open up without feeling any judgement. I think the best part was the thinking approach she recommended. It’s helped me tremendously with my outlook of life in general. Thank you.
