Life is full of ups and downs but the true test in life is how you overcome those obstacles.
My name is Riddhi Sevak-Patel and I am a Licensed Clinical Therapist. Welcome to my page, I hope that this allows you to get to know me a little better!
I received my MSW back in 2010 from the University of Alabama after completing the advanced standing program specializing in Children, Adolescents and their families and graduating with honors. I have worked in all aspects of healthcare ranging from acute inpatient ICU care to out-patient rehabilitation working with children and adults alike.
Outside of Better Help, I have my own private practice where I work with both teenagers and adults who struggle with depression, suicidal thoughts, grief, trauma and substance abuse, to name a few. As a working mother of three, I understand the struggles faced with the "mommy burden" and can empathize towards those dealing with the anxiety that comes from "doing it all." You are not alone.
My approach to therapy is mostly a humanistic approach mixed with CBT and DBT. People are a lot more resilient than they sometimes realize and I believe that we all have the ability to "find ourselves" even in the most severe circumstances. My goal is to help you realize your strengths and help you process your feeling so that you can move onto becoming a better you.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Riddhi Sevak-Patel. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
The best therapist I have worked with.
Riddhi is the best listener and very thoughtful with her advice. She's the best therapist I've ever had and I'm definitely keeping/following her!
I don’t know where I would be without her! She has helped me change my life for the better and put the work in for myself and supports me the entire way.
Riddhi is a great person for someone like me who is sensitive to my thoughts, has a tendency to overthink and take on the emotional responsibilities of others. She helps me develop healthy tools to navigate different situations and recognizes when it’s appropriate to challenge my own thinking with healthier alternatives.
Riddhi was matched to me based on my questionnaire and we really seemed to work together well and understood each other. Come to find out, I went to a public gifted boarding school with Riddhi's husband which really explains why we relate so much. I was fairly impressed that BetterHelp matched us up so well.
Riddhi is kind, professional, very knowledgeable, and has a great bedside manner and communication skills. She is highly intelligent and also very perceptive. We are a lot alike which makes it far easier for us to work together.
I'd highly recommend Riddhi to anyone but I'd especially recommend her if you are a high achiever as she understands these types of people very well.
A huge help, and a trusted confidant
Best I have ever had!
My therapist is really on the ball, she explains everything in a calm positive way. She's easy to understand and she's concerned about my needs. She checks up on me on a regular basis through text messages which I agreed to and I like doing. Phone conversations are easy and she's very thoughtful and suggestive suggestive as far as problem-solving and concerns of mine. A soft-spoken and easy to listen to and she strikes me as someone that knows what she's talking about. I'm sure all the therapist are good that Miss Patel that's what I'm talking to right now and she's really easy good listening and I would recommend her very highly
I’m excited to go on this journey with you
As someone who is going through the grief process, I find this format (video and email) very convenient and supportive. I like having the option of writing to Riddhi anytime even just so I remember to speak with her about something. So far, REALLY happy I did this.
So far, I am enjoying the sessions with Riddhi. I feel heard, and I’m definitely a lot more aware than I was before. She has helped me bring awareness to my feelings and how not to dismiss my feelings while acknowledging others feelings.
She is amazing. Very insightful
Miss Riddhi is absolutely amazing! She is so intelligent and kind, and really helps me in being heard and feeling validated. She offer really good advice and is willing to go at your pace. I’d strongly recommend her :) I have made so much progress in the year I’ve been speaking to her and I am in a much better place now, thanks to her help.
After seeing many mental health professionals, I feel Riddhi is the first one to see me, hear me, and help me on my journey to being my authentic self. She is honest, transparent, a great listener and gives practical, low stress things to work on to help you grow. I’m looking forward to continuing working with her and living a healthier life.
Riddhi is fantastic! She is extremely knowledgeable and is a great listener. She offers me great perspective and has truly been a great help to me!
Riddhi seems to always be available at all times and days. She has helped me understand myself and feelings that I have struggled with. She continues to check in even if I have been inactive for more than a week. She is someone who genuinely cares and wants to help.
Very kind and intelegent
She’s a great listener and asks all the right questions. I’ve only been seeing her for a short time and she’s already helped me shift my thinking. She’s also helped me see my life and past differently and how it affects my mental health. Thankful for the help she’s provided so far.
My schedule is rather chaotic and I’m not always the best about keeping a schedule, but Riddhi takes time out of her day to check in on me and send me things that bring me back to the present to really look in on myself. I would highly recommend her to someone who’s never had therapy before and is hesitant, she’s very easy to talk with and can relate to any situation you throw at her. I trust her expertise and her kindness is something I cherish deeply.
I lost touch of myself and emotions for a long time and felt numb and effortless. But she helped change the way I see/approach things and made me feel alive again I couldn’t be anymore thankful
My time with Riddhi Sevak-Patel was a few months long and it was the most insightful and life-changing experience I have had. I’ve made strides in my life simply from implementing her strategies. I was ready to make changes and be open to a different way of seeing the way I saw things. If and when I decide to return, I know I would want her to be my therapist again.
She has an amazing way of calming you and really bringing the main focus to light. Very knowledgeable and listens, actually listens to you. Would highly recommend.
I’m so glad I got matched with Riddhi. I’ve only been working with her for a short time but am already feeling able to incorporate some of the thing we’re working on into my daily life. I am optimistic that with her continued guidance I will discover even more ways to handle (and improve) things that I have previously felt hopeless about for decades. It’s been really helpful for me that she is available through messaging, so when things come up I am able to explain to her in real time, receiving her suggestions while I’m actually going through it, rather than waiting a week for a session. Thank you, Riddhi!
Riddhi is phenomenal. She gets to the heart of the issue everytime.
Excellent therapist. She gave me clarity on many aspects of my life
Counseling sessions with Dr. Sevak- Patel has been very beneficial to my mental health. She is able to provide great support with reasonable action steps.
Great experience so far!
Riddhi has helped me tremendously in the past, and was noticeably missed during my time away from therapy (she is why i came back). I feel heard, understood, and am provided with a handful of ways to help my progress in achieving my goals.
Outstanding Listener and a amazing individual.
Great therapist! Stays in touch and keeps me motivated towards my goals. She's supportive but also helps me stay objective.
Riddhi is very patient to cater to my need. When I have self-doubt or overly negative, she helps to shed light on how to see things correctly, it would be greatly helpful. I found myself to be more confident and certain about myself gradullay.
Very kind, patient, and insightful.
Riddhi has been very helpful to me in just the short amount of time I have been working with her and I can honestly say that she is the first counselor that I have worked with that I have really clicked with.
She is a wonderful listener and brings a calm and steady energy into her sessions. She is very intentional about creating a judgement free space and is always warm and welcoming.
I would 100% recommend her to anyone looking for counseling.
Riddhi has been great so far. She makes sure to reach out an appropriate amount of times during the week, is very responsive and I feel like she really helps me get to the core of things I am struggling with.
Riddhi is the best therapist I have had by far! She is thoughtful and understanding, she helps me see my issues in a new light and provides support when I need it. I treasure our relationship!
Riddhi has been a pleasure to work with. She is responsive, considerate, and she has really made an effort (and succeeded!) in understanding what my primary goals are, and and helping me establish benchmarks and in suggesting exercises all designed to help me meet those goals. I respect and appreciate her depth and insight. I am so pleased with my progress, my headspace is so much more positive, and that is all thanks to working with her. Highly highly recommend.
She is great
I love her. She’s amazing!
Riddhi is an amazing counselor. She does a fantastic job checking in with me (even when I forget to), and I know she truly has my best wishes at heart. I love working with her and can’t wait to see what other challenges and goals she helps me accomplish.
Riddhi will help you on your life's journey.
Riddhi is mindful, caring and a wizard at bringing me right to the issues I need to address. I have had a number of counselors assist me with with various issues over the years and Riddhi is as good or better at counseling than anyone I’ve ever been associated with. I’m very thankful.
Riddhi is amazing! She listens and is able to see the big picture while giving me tools to use in the present. She challenges me to create new pathways for myself. Very helpful!
Although we have only been working together for 3 weeks, she's been of huge help!
After working with a few counselors and never clicking with anyone, I connected with Mrs. Sevak-Patel. She has been critical in helping me learn more about myself, gain much needed confidence and work through many issues I've struggled with. She provides much needed structure to my therapy and our sessions, which has been key in helping me stay on track and focused with my own goals. When I look back at where I was only a few months ago I can see the progress that's been made, it's been amazing!
Riddhi understands my issues better than I ever thought someone could, and has helped more in a year than I thought was possible. She is the best suited person for me for counselling.
Riddhi and I have been working together for 7 months, and I cannot tell you how much I've gotten out of therapy with her. She's a great listener, offers up solid solutions to complex problems, and doesn't make you feel weird for anything you're feeling. She's a great therapist!
She’s great! Highly competent, good listening ear, safe space provided, provides helpful perspective.
Rhiddi is a great counselor! She listens and has guided me to discover things about myself that has helped me improve my quality of life greatly. It was hard, but with Rhiddi, I felt confident to make these moves and push forward. The scary unknown became a little less scary, and I conquered my problems one step at a time.
Riddhi is incredible. She makes you feel so comfortable and heard. Somehow after discussing something really difficult, she even has a way of making me laugh! I would recommend her to anyone!!
She is amazing and pays attention to what is actually happening. She helps focus on the main issues and hold space, while also moving forward with goals.
The absolutely best so understanding and caring and responsive only have about 2 weeks with her so far and I am so thankful
An incredibly patient and understanding counselor who helped me over a long period of time. She is uncritical and responds quickly. I recommend her for a great counseling experience!
Riddhi has been wonderful in being able to see inside what I am saying and help me realize things that may not be at the forefront of my mind. She is my first counselor and I’ve had a wonderful experience so far.
She’s wonderful. I truly do recommend her.
Riddhi is a wonderful counselor. She always responds promptly to my messages and is absolutely not judgmental. She even tolerates the times when I fail to respond for many days. I recommend her without reservation.
Riddhi listens and helps m.h e understand my confusion about my anxiety and concerns. She helps me understand that I too am a person and need to take care of me too
When I first signed up for counseling I was nervous to tell a stranger about my problems. Riddhi Sevak-Patel made me feel comfortable from the very beginning. Her messages are positive and she shows she truly cares. When you have a video chat you find yourself very at ease. She has begun to help me in many ways that I did not think was possible. Thank you!
She has helped me work through some serious issues in my life
Riddhi has helped me more than my in-person therapist. She’s understanding and utilizes a patient centered approach but also ask questions to help start conversations. If I don't understand, she will explain it more in depth. So glad I switched to this app. Being able to talk to my counselor whenever is amazing.
Oh my goodness I have been through quite a few therapists because I didn't connect until I was matched with Riddhi Patel. I can't tell you how excited and thrilled I am that I joined this site. From the therapists to the customer service department everyone truly has a passion to help and make your experience better.
I love her! She has been great at helping me, being patient with me when I am non responsive and never stops checking on me!
Dr. Sevak-Patel is an amazing therapist. She always makes her clients feel heard and she reaches out every couple of days with thoughtful prompts to promote mental wellness. I would recommend her to anyone.
Riddhi is amazing. She definitely makes me feel comfortable and always has good advise. There's times i just want to talk and she's there. There were some things i needed to work on my self and she is very supportive and suggested some worksheets to do which really help. Am so grateful I matched with Riddhi she's one of a kind.
Riddhi has helped me more in one session than any other of my "in-person" therapists have ever been able to do. She took the time to read and understand my reasons for seeking therapy and even asked for a "preview" of what I wanted to talk about during my first session, saving the actual phone session for problem solving instead of just background (eliminating what I find the most frustrating part of working with a new therapist--all the time it takes to get them up to speed on the background!). She has been able to provide me with both explanations of why I might be feeling the way I do/why others act the way they do AND practical tips to manage my anxiety and improve relationships in my life!
Mrs. Sevak-Patel is responsive, caring, and knowledgeable. I would recommend her to anyone trying to work through relationship issues and people trying to find themselves.
Riddhi listened and understood my needs. With her help, I was able to overcome many obstacles that I never thought I could before. I greatly appreciate the help provided and she was always quick to respond. She has been a tremendous help in allowing me to find the strength and courage to get me to a better me!
Riddhi Sevak-Patel is sweet and very encouraging, which is something I really need. She listens to what I have to say and helps me find solutions to my problems. Even if I'm super busy, she always makes an effort to check in and see if I need anything. For me, I need someone that will encourage me and guide me to the decisions that will best suit me. Riddhi does all of this, but makes it feel like I'm talking to a friend that truly understands me and wants the best for me.
Great! Helped me meet my therapy goals and gave me good advice.
I love the BetterHelp app and Riddhi is amazing. She is always there for me and is really helping me shape my future so that I live a happy and healthy life.
It's hard to talk about things face to face with therapists, but over the phone I feel like I'm talking to a close friend who's listening.
Riddhi has really helped me to find real solutions to my problems and concerns. For the first time I am able to understand HOW to accomplish my goals and not just that goals exist. I still have a long way to go but she is helping me:
-cope with divorce
-overcome anger issues I have
-repair my self esteem
-recognize my triggers
She is the best! She listens and responds so quickly! Love her!
Offers great advice!
Riddhi is hands down the best counselor I have ever had. She comes in to our sessions completely prepared with a guideline of what we will talk about, without dominating the conversation either. She keeps up with everything that is going on in my life and checks in with me on it, and she is very clearly extremely knowledgeable about psychology and counseling (she was definitely the student who probably got high As in all her classes!)
Riddhi is very helpful and nice. She doesn't push or pressure me for information. I feel comfortable talking to her.
I enjoy Riddhi's counseling style. She remembers our little details about our discussions and follows up. I feel like she is hearing me and truly cares about me.
Riddhi is a very knowledgeable counselor that really made me feel comfortable in sharing what I needed to share to get help. She also provided hands on worksheets that really gave me direction and confidence in being able to physically see what the problems were and what I needed to do. She is also a very kind person and doesn’t hesitate to reach out. Thank you Riddhi!
She's a very compassionate and caring person. She also, replies to messages very quickly and has provided several tools to support me in my journey.
Riddhi Sevak-Patel is wonderful to work with. She has helped me tremendously in a small amount of time. She responds very quickly if you need anything and has a lot of compassion. I highly recommend her services!
