Nita Prasad


About Me

I am a family and marriage therapist licensed in California with over 17 years of experience working as a Mental Health therapist and a Substance Abuse Counselor. I did my MS in Counseling Psychology with cross cultural focus and have worked with young and old clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and ADHD to name a few. I also work with clients who have experienced traumatic life situations such as physical trauma and/ or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness, humanistic,and dialectical behavior therapy . I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Nita has been a godsend! She understands how to get the most out of our sessions. I look forward to our sessions and have already noticed improvements personally as well as professionally!

I am so incredibly thankful I was paired with Nita. She is amazing. There seems to come a time in some people's lives where the personal struggles are more than one can bare, let alone try and unload on a friend or family member when their own personal lives are super crazy. This is where Nita fills that gap in my mentally stressful world. She does this with incredible professionalism. She does not judge and makes my thoughts and actions come together to where I can feel okay with myself again. She points me in positive directions and subtly makes me accountable for my actions & decisions. I look forward to our weekly visits very much. I am incredibly grateful & humbled she has helped me as much as she has & This is just the beginning! I also look forward to continued mental & personal growth with Nita!
Thank you so much!

I appreciate the compassion and support that Nita shows in our sessions. She listens thoughtfully, remembers past conversations, and asks questions that evoke in-depth discussions. In addition, she also suggests helpful techniques and practices to use on a daily basis to improve my well being.
