Do you feel you have a lot weighing on your mind but don’t know where to let it out? Do you often find yourself hesitant to talk through how you’re feeling? It takes courage to recognize the need to reach out to someone and even more so to act on it. As a licensed clinical social worker, I can provide a safe and non-judgmental space for you to be heard and allow you to put those thoughts into your own words. My approach is rooted in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and utilizing techniques to help you change the way you approach difficult situations. I also use a mindfulness-based approach to help you develop a skill set that will allow you to be in a better position to work through stressful times. In working together, we can use evidence-based practices to implement a variety of techniques that empower you to manage any challenges life may throw your way. +1 (786) 755-1863 reception+Reesha18472@growtherapy.com **I will not be able to evaluate for disability, custody or court-related documents.

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

Our first session is geared towards getting to know you and the challenges that you are facing. Sometimes, it can be difficult to talk about the difficulties we are dealing with. Our sessions will allow a non-judgmental, patient and compassionate space to allow you to express your concerns. We can work together to identify your goals and create a specific plan using evidence-based techniques to guide you towards reaching those goals.

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

Over the past 7 years, I have worked with patients dealing with chronic illness, many of whom experience a rollercoaster of emotions including depression, anxiety and grief. I believe it is important to allow these individuals to express themselves in a safe environment and give them the ability to sort through those emotions to identify any underlying concerns and address them directly. I also recognize the barriers in the South Asian community in accessing mental healthcare. I aim to be part of the movement to break down those barriers by being able to relate to those challenges and providing an empathic ear. You’re not alone! It’s a big step to seek help and I am here to support you the rest of the way.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

CBT is focused on identifying how our thoughts, feelings and behaviors are all related. By identifying negative thought patterns that may trigger unwanted feelings or behaviors, we can change them to alter how we react.

Mindfulness-Based Therapy

Centering ourselves in moments of anxiety or depression can help us improve our ability to handle stressful situations. Taking a moment to tune into what your body is telling you allows you to recognize the impact thoughts have on your physical health.
