I am a marriage and family therapist licensed in California with over 10 years of experience and also hold an undergraduate degree in nutrition and dietetics. I have worked with clients experiencing a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, career challenges, and stress management. I have also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, and a variety of other client centered modalities. 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 change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

For lack of words, all I can say is Vani is great. She excels at not only listening to you but she is great at helping improve whatever problem it is you may be wanting to fix.
It is hard to find a counselor that is not only good and supportive but as Christian to find someone who can give you a couple of verses for encouragement is a blessing.
Very professional, intent listener, understands what I’m saying, asks great questions
Vani is awesome!
Vani is super kind and encouraging. She takes time to listen to your issues and sort through what your feeling. I always leave our sessions feeing uplifted and in a better mood.
She has been a big support to me the last few weeks and I’m grateful for her help!
Vani is a patient, empathetic counselor who has helped me put things in perspective and guided me out of depression. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of counseling help!
