How I can help

Therapy is a safe space for you to explore your past and present so you can move towards a better future. So often, the issues and feelings we need to talk about most are the ones we express least. As a therapist, I’m here to listen to you in a confidential, objective and nonjudgmental way and help you gain insight into what you truly want and need through the psychotherapy process.

I use an integrative approach that draws on various therapeutic strategies including psychodynamic/psychoanalytic therapy, interpersonal / relational therapies and cognitive behavioral therapy. I can tailor our psychotherapy work to best fit your needs and help you achieve your goals.

Psychotherapy

In a private office setting, we'll talk through your thoughts and feelings. In this process, you'll gain insight into your past and present, improve your coping strategies, better understand yourself and deepen your relationships.

Psychoanalysis

In this more intensive form of psychotherapy, we'll meet more often (three to four times a week) in order to work through deeper, unconscious conflicts. This allows us to make meaningful progress faster.

Testimonial

“Dr. Patel provides a safe and welcoming environment for her patients to explore their inner worlds, travelling with them in the, often difficult, emotional journey towards health and wellbeing. She is empathic and warm, adept at putting patients at ease, allowing them to tell their stories in a non-judgmental manner, allowing them the freedom to express themselves in a way that they often have never done. She is kind, reliable, and trustworthy, which is reflected by the strong affection that her patients have shown for her.”
