About me

Hi! I’m Ektha Aggarwal, YOUR licensed psychotherapist in Los Angeles, specializing in serving the South Asian community throughout California. My practice is dedicated to transforming personal struggles & shame into strengths, particularly focusing on anxiety, depression, & resolving shame. As a first-generation South Asian therapist, I understand the unique struggles of balancing ethnic & cultural traditions with Western assimilation in this place YOU call “home.”

If YOUR emotions or thoughts are taking over at the worst possible moments, or if YOU are wrestling with day-to-day life confusion, pain or loss – YOU ARE NOT ALONE. Together, we’ll build courage YOU need to face the difficult questions YOU may be avoiding.  This time is overwhelming or shaming, &  may be affecting YOUR relationships with family, friends, colleagues & most importantly, YOUR relationship with yourself.

As Shannon Alder puts it, “courage doesn’t happen when YOU have all the answers. It happens when YOU are ready to face the questions YOU have been avoiding YOUR whole life.” How do YOU to face the difficult questions, show courage, & claim YOUR Shakti (strength) in order to heal?

Healing begins with love. Let’s work on being in love with the person in the mirror, who has been through SO much & is STILL showing resilience.  With methods like CBT, Strength Based Psychology, Inner Childwork in combination with holistic appraoches such as Trauma-Focused Yoga, Ketamine Assisted Therapy, & Crystal Healing, I guide YOU in loving yourself more deeply & finding JOY in YOUR journey.  My approach is to walk with YOU through life’s complexities, helping YOU build courage to face tough questions & embrace YOUR inner Shakti (strength).  Let’s navigate life’s challenges together & turn YOUR pain into resilience & empowerment.

If YOU are ready to transition YOUR pain to resilience, effortlessly achieve YOUR goals, & ignite greater JOY & love, contact me today. I am in this with YOU & TOGETHER we can navigate any conflict & help YOU thrive.
