Nikhil (he/him/his) is a psychotherapist in private practice. Nikhil's approach is strongly grounded in Integrative psychology which embraces an attitude towards the practice of counseling that affirms the inherent value of each individual. In his work he utilizes the person's strengths, values and knowledge to respond appropriately and effectively to the challenges they are facing. His approach identifies with the idea that the person is not the problem, and takes into account a holistic perspective on life. Nikhil leans towards using a trauma informed lens, culturally relevant, holistic, and liberatory (critical, queer, feminist) ways of conceptualizing to co-create a healing space. Nikhil is experienced in helping individuals, couples, adolescents, and families deal with life’s challenges. Nikhil is multilingual and is fluent in English, Hindi and Urdu.
