About me

Hi there! I’m Simran

At the cross-section of mental health, feminism and navigating intersectional identities as a minority woman, I strive to create a safe and welcoming space for individuals, couples, and groups of all backgrounds and identities through culturally sensitive and LGBTQI+ friendly approaches.

I approach therapy through a multicultural lens, aiming to guide clients through a journey of wellness helping clients gain skills for optimal living. I take a holistic approach to therapy including mindfulness and meditation. I am trained in multiple theories such as humanistic theory and relational-cultural theory. I also draw from narrative therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectic behavioral therapy, interpersonal and social rhythm therapy, and trauma informed therapy when necessary.

I received my Master’s in Counseling in Mental Health and Wellness at New York University. Prior to joining CityTherapy, I worked at a private practice in Brooklyn where I provided psychotherapy to a diverse population of adult clients. I offer counseling services in English, Hindi and Gujarati.

Working together means co-creating a therapeutic journey designed to achieve lasting emotional change existing beyond the therapy room. Schedule an appointment with me today to get started! Please also feel free to get in touch via email at sbharadwaj@citytherapy.nyc with any questions about the process. I look forward to meeting you!
