About me

The focus area of my private practice is women’s health and young professionals.  I completed my internship in a university setting with much of my work conducted with women. Issues can range from body image, health issues, relationships, academics and career.  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.

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 would like things to improve quickly for you but at the same time, the goal is to come up with lifelong tools and coping strategies while working through unresolved issues. I utilize research-based techniques such as Cognitive-Behavioral therapy while being warm, empathetic and genuine. I want therapy to be a place in which you can talk about your issues openly and without reservation. 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-St. Louis. I am happy to see mental health being addressed in our community. Seeking help for mental health is difficult but can have a positive impact on your life.  If you do not choose to work with me, please find a therapist who you connect with for therapy services.

Currently, I am offering secure HIPAA-compliant video sessions and can work with clients across the state of Ohio. I offer a free 15 minute consultation. The therapist-client fit is important and research shows that it plays a role in therapy results. 

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.

You can schedule this free 15 minute consultation or initial intake session by contacting me directly at Stephanie@mindhealthohio.com.
