My Approach to Helping

Anjali takes an approach to therapy that fosters empowerment, self-compassion, and growth. Through warmth, unconditional acceptance, and empathy, she works to collaborate with clients towards ameliorating the effects of depression and anxiety, as well as understanding and healing from complex trauma, destructive thoughts, and low self-esteem. Anjali strives always to practice through a multicultural and feminist lens.​

Anjali’s therapeutic style is influenced by person-centered, relational cultural, feminist therapy. She considers unconditional positive regard to be a core part of healing. Relational-Cultural Therapy and Feminist Therapy inform Anjali’s perspective on the therapeutic relationship, in which the therapist and client can form a more an authentic, healthy, and egalitarian relationship. This relationship can then be a model for clients to develop deeper, more meaningful connections to others.​

Anjali has previously worked at the Lenox Hill Neighborhood House Women's Mental Health shelter, where she offered services to women ages 45 and up who are homeless, living with severe and persistent mental health issues, chronic and debilitating physical ailments, and substance abuse issues. She earned her Ed.M. in Counseling Psychology and a certification in Sexuality, Women, & Gender at Teachers College, Columbia University.

More Info About My Practice
