Hi! I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist located on the Big Island of Hawaii. I have over 4 years of counseling experience working in both inpatient and outpatient treatment centers. I earned my Master's of Art degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Argosy University, Hawaii in 2016. My versatile experience includes one year in Eating Disorder treatment, two years in substance abuse treatment and 1 year in adult rehabilitation & reintegration program. My clients include individuals who struggle with anxiety, depression, eating disorder, substance abuse, family conflicts, relationship issues, self-esteem, life stage challenges, career issues, and mood disorders. Prior to becoming a therapist I worked in the healthcare sector for 13 years, two years in Asthma prevention and advocacy program, and one year in clinical research and development.
I have an eclectic style, and I often use Mindfulness, DBT, CBT, Solution focused therapy, Existential, Experiential, Collaborative, and Narrative Therapy to help my clients work towards their specific goals. I am dedicated, passionate, inquisitive and compassionate therapist, who can provide support and nurturance for clients while holding non-judgmental, and safe space for self-reflection, exploration and expanded awareness. I am skilled to provide both short and long term therapy rooted in strong therapeutic alliance, authenticity, collaboration, unconditional positive regard, and self-empowerment.

Sangeetha really listens without any judgements or whatsoever. She helps me to think and process my thoughts regarding the emotions I’ve been feeling. And also, she guides me how to process my emotions too. It is very helpful. It’s been just 2 weeks but I already felt/seen progress within me
Sangeetha is a great listener! She's insightful and finds the root of the problem, and helps you get to the bottom of things!
