About me

As a South Indian, I understand the many facets of pressure to perform well academically and to follow the rules from well-meaning parents. It can be difficult to live your life pursuing your own goals and values while pleasing your family. This can cause stress both for yourself and within your relationships. Trying to assimilate in this country while holding onto your Indian culture can be a challenge. The focus area of my private practice is women’s health from early adulthood to mid-life. I work with mothers, working professionals, and graduate students.  I completed my internship in a university setting and worked in higher education, career counseling, and testing/assessment prior to starting my journey in private practice.

Parenthood brings a lot of uncertainty and little to no control which can be so difficult to accept. I understand the many joys and stresses of parenthood both personally and professionally. The family unit is a system so each person effects the other. Many South Asian parents have to juggle the needs of their children, themselves, and their aging parents, often all living within the same house.

My goal is to help you come up with potential solutions to issues in a collaborative way. I am a certified integrative medicine therapist and believe an integrative approach to mental health is important . Each treatment plan is highly individualized. I want therapy to be a place in which you can talk about issues openly and without reservation in a safe space. Therapy is a collaborative process.

My parents were born and raised in India. I lived both in India and the United States during my childhood which gives me a unique perspective. I spoke three languages as a child and found myself constantly trying to honor both cultures. I earned a BA in psychology and sociology from The Ohio State University and an M.Ed in counselor education with a specialization in clinical counseling from the University of Missouri.

Currently, I am offering secure HIPAA-compliant video sessions in the state of Ohio. Please email me directly to schedule an intake session at stephanie@mindhealthohio.com. I am available to see clients from 9am to 2pm Monday through Friday.

I am an out-of-network provider so I do not accept insurance. I may be able to provide a superbill for partial reimbursement. If you are interested in this option, please contact me so I can email you a list of questions to ask your health insurance provider.

Rate for services are $125 per session.  I offer a reduced rate of $110 for graduate students/undergrads/residents in training with presentation of student ID. I am currently accepting new clients for individual therapy.  I offer services outside of  traditional therapy such as pregnancy/postpartum planning package and writing your birth story.
