Hello! My name is Manisha. I look forward to helping you achieve your therapeutic goals in a compassionate and caring space. My passion for therapeutic work stems from a deep confidence in the healing power of interpersonal connection. I believe that the strength of the therapeutic relationship is rooted in collaboration, empathy, and trust.

I employ a variety of theoretical approaches to help clients address their concerns and meet personal goals. My interests include psychodynamic and attachment theories, which acknowledge the influence of a client’s past on their present experience. I am also drawn to acceptance and mindfulness-based theories aimed at empowering clients to improve resilience, gain agency, and strengthen coping skills.

My goal is to offer individualized therapy that draws from each client’s unique qualities and strengths. Using a trauma-informed and multicultural lens, I create a compassionate counseling environment for clients of all identities and backgrounds.
