Neha Patel, licensed clinical psychologist

Neha Patel psychologist

I’m passionate about helping people and have been working in the mental health field since 1995. Before launching my private practice, I had the privilege of working at the Community Mental Health Council on the South Side of Chicago for eight years, including serving as Director of Outpatient Mental Health and Director of Training. Prior to that, I worked as intern and postdoctoral therapist at the Asian Mental Health Clinic and Child and Adolescent Outpatient Clinic (now called Child/Adolescent Ambulatory Services) at Cambridge Hospital affiliated with Harvard Medical School. It was inspiring to be part of clinics that were invested in serving underserved populations. At the same time, I longed to do in-depth work on a more personal level. In 2005, I launched my private practice where I offer psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. I help adults struggling with depression, anxiety, anger, trauma, abuse, relationships, loss, stress, low self-esteem, life transitions, inhibitions and illness. I have a special interest in working with diverse populations in a culturally sensitive manner. I enjoy giving people hope and helping them find their joy.
