Hi there, I'm Dinesh!

My name is Dinesh. I am a licensed Professional counselor and also working towards getting my License in Chemical dependency as well. My goal as a therapist is to help you become mindful of your life values and your life stories, guide you to change them if necessary, and help you become the best version of yourself.

My approach

My therapeutic approach is individualized, and I am flexible in changing the approach as per your need. I use different techniques for different people based on the crisis we are dealing with. I mainly use cognitive behavioral, person-centered, and psychodynamic approaches, and I always mix other approaches as well.

My focus

Having worked in different settings, hospitals, rehab centers, clinics, and schools, I am flexible to work with people of all ages and different concerns. Since I grew up outside the USA, I have multi-cultural competence and exposure to multiple cultures and ways of life, which has definitely enriched my therapeutic approach and perspective on handling situations.

My communication style

My role as a therapist is to help you get in touch with your best self which includes actively listening to you, helping you gain a different perspective of the situation whenever necessary, and helping you in accepting your strengths and weaknesses. I am a very active listener, and a session with me will make you feel comfortable to trust me and open up.

My journey to mental healthcare

My goal of becoming a therapist came from my inner desire to help people in need of mental health help, guiding them in resolving those issues or at least making them mindful of the issue's impact they have on mental health and overall well-being. We often refrain from getting the help we need for many reasons, and in doing so, we fail to seek the help we need and often forget that it's never too late to ask for help. Reaching out can be the best thing that we can do in this phase of your life, and maybe get the help to be the best version of yourself.

My goals for you

I work with you to prepare a treatment plan that helps us set a goal we want to achieve through therapy, and we work towards achieving the goal. So, I give some assignments and home works related to the goals we plan to achieve.

My first session with you

The first session is the open space for you to talk about your concerns, the reason you came to see me, as well as gathering more information from your life to get a better insight about your life. That helps us to work on setting a treatment plan about the goals we want to achieve.
