Hi, welcome to my practice - Healing with Deepa

 I'm so happy you're here.

Do you have a difficult time imagining what safety looks like? Do you feel like there's a disconnect that keeps you from the truest parts of yourself? If you've found your way here, it's likely because you are carrying a burden that has become too heavy to bear alone. Trauma, grief, and attachment wounds are not just about the past - it shows up in your body, in the relationships that you have with yourself and others, and shapes the lens in which you view the world. 

Finding solace and stillness in a fast-paced world can be difficult for many of us. Living in the 21st century doesn't always factor in the time to meaningfully reflect on where you are in your life and where you want to be. Here, you will find a safe space to untangle the complexities of your experiences so that you can focus on rebuilding the sense of control and peace that you deserve. My areas of expertise include:

  • PTSD + complex trauma

  • Grief + loss

  • Relationships (whether it's the relationship you have with yourself or with the people in your orbit)

  • Intimate partner violence

  • Individuals + parents with foster/adoption history


 As a lifespan therapist, I find myself working with people at different stages of life ranging from adolescence to older adulthood. We all have our own story, and I firmly believe that your truth not only deserves to be heard, but to be told in a way where you understand the roads you've walked on, how that shows up in your life today, and to be able to create your own path forward. I'm equipped to help you unpack how you experience the weight of social injustice, systemic racism, or intergenerational trauma. My practice includes a lens of relational psychotherapy and research-informed interventions for people endorsing PTSD, attachment-related challenges, relational issues, and grief.

I'm trained in Brainspotting, Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) and Safe & Sound Protocol which are designed to help people process difficult life experiences in a different way than just talk therapy. Throughout each session, I incorporate best practices from a number of modalities as a means to support you in maximizing your fullest potential. I'm committed to your healing process, whatever that may look like and I believe that stepping into your authenticity will foster sustainable growth.

Guiding You On the Path of Self-Healing

Some problems aren't meant to be solved alone.

By the time most people seek therapy, they've often tried nearly everything to sort things out on their own. I respect the hard work you may have already done and your courage in seeking more support. Some of the topics we can work on together:

  • Trauma + complex PTSD

  • Grief + loss

  • Women's issues

  • Identity exploration + self-esteem

  • Non-monogamous relationships, Kink & BDSM

  • Interpersonal violence 

  • Experiences of power + oppression

  • Life transitions

  • Individuals with Foster + Adoption experience

  • Attachment wounds

Take the first step.
