5 years of experience

Hi there, I'm Sarika. Is there something you are struggling to move past something? I empower clients to become the best version of themselves after a trauma. Together we can process these past experiences and get you to a new normal. I live by the philosophy of Lena Horne's words, "It's not the load that breaks you down; it's the way you carry it." My therapy style is empowering, warm, enthusiastic, direct, and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and take the first steps toward change. I am here to support you if you are ready to take that step.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

After the first session, I expect the client to feel relief after speaking with me and be excited to proceed with treatment. Even though the client knows it will be hard working, they also feel supported in making the change.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I assist clients who have trauma-related issues and dual-diagnosis by using cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), internal family systems (IFS), mindfulness, attachment-based therapy, and somatic therapy. I have great success helping patients work through trauma and get to their new normal.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I have five-plus years of experience working with survivors of interpersonal and sexual violence and dual-diagnosis disorders. My ideal client would be someone who has experienced trauma or attachment-related matters and is ready to unpack those issues to become healthier. It is working with BIPOC individuals who have experienced trauma related to oppression, racism, generation trauma, self-esteem, and other issues that create stress. In addition, LGBTQA+ populations need support in finding themselves because of trauma and empowering others to be the best version of themselves, increasing self-worth, and setting firm boundaries.
