What are you proud of in your practice?

In my practice, I pride myself in my collaborative, client centered approach. What's most important is that you feel that we are working together to meet your goals and have the guidance and support through the therapeutic process.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I enjoy working with people more than working on a specific type of case. I think each person and their story is unique, and it's a privilege to hear their personal stories, and to be a part of the process of healing.

  • As this was my first therapy session ever, I felt welcomed in Dharshini's space, so I already felt like I accomplished something.

    Dharshini was very professional, kind, and non-judgemental. She had a good handle on who I was fairly quickly for my first session. I feel that I'll accomplish what I'm looking for in therapy with her, and maybe even more. I look forward to the next appointment!
