As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) with a passion for strengthening relationships and promoting emotional well-being, Deepa is dedicated to helping individuals, couples, and families navigate the complexities of life’s challenges. Her desire is to provide a space that molds to a client’s needs in which they can explore their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.
Deepa views therapy as a safe space to explore relationships with people or things. She believes in helping people build their definition of healthy relationships by fostering deep discussions that develop the required skills to achieve personal growth and emotional wellbeing. The inherent resilience that clients come to therapy with serves as a foundation to the therapeutic process, and Deepa understands the difficulties that are ahead within the therapy journey such as engaging in vulnerability. Through metaphors, sharing personal life experiences and humor/fun, Deepa and her clients explore the strength and challenges of the joy and stress that come from balancing various relationships.
Deepa received her Ph.D. in Marriage and Family Therapy through Antioch University. She works from a social justice, systemic and collaborative approach to therapy, drawing from modalities such as family systems theories, EFT, and narrative therapy. Deepa is skilled at working with topics on anxiety, attachment style, grief and loss, trauma, life transitions and adjustments and communication skills.
During her personal time, Deepa enjoys exploring the city with her husband and dog, trying new restaurants with family/ friends and watching A LOT of reality tv!
