About me

I love people and am passionate about doing excellent psychotherapy, about healing. I’m dedicated to holding a safe space for you, and I’m honored to help you. You are not a diagnosis. You are more than the sum of your parts, a whole unique individual, you are richly textured and the best therapy is tailor-made for you. My style is warm, empathetic, and flexible. I collaborate with you. I bring my passion and wholehearted presence to understanding you from the inside out. Psychotherapy is a sacred process where you trust me to hold your reality—and I trust you to share your vulnerability and truth. Despite the stigma of seeking psychotherapy in South Asian groups/families, you’re visiting this site and seeking help: I admire that you’re acknowledging your needs—this reflects your strength and commitment to yourself. Rather than avoiding, you’re confronting stuff—this takes extraordinary courage. We are born resilient, and though we might feel deflated, life cannot knock this resilience out of us. With your resourcefulness, you’re looking for a therapist . . . you’re reading this paragraph, and you’re taking the first step . . . congratulations! I have over 38 years experience in the mental health field, and having worked with hundreds of South Asian clients over the decades, feel kinship with and have great sensitivity to the South Asian cultural nuance. I’m first generation Indian, am conversationally fluent in Gujarati, and can understand basic Hindi. Please call for a free telephone consultation—I’d love for us to get a sense of each other, and discuss your situation. For more information about my practice, please visit: www.DrRanjanPatel.com
