Psychotherapy Services

Do you spend most of your time & energy taking care of others, draining yourself in the process? Do you stress about doing everything just right, or ensuring that other people think you have it all together? You’re not alone. We’ve been conditioned to put ourselves last. We’re taught we have to be amazing at everything we do to matter what. You shouldn’t have to live this way. Living this way can threaten our wellbeing and our identity; even invite depression and anxiety.

Vaishali Patel (MS, Eds, CCC) is a registered psychotherapist. She specializes in treating superwoman syndrome, working with women who are feeling depleted & have little left to give to their families, careers, community, or themselves. She provides clients with tools to establish healthy boundaries, battle perfectionism, establish self-care practices, & bring back joy. Helping  you connect with your authentic self through the challenges that arise in your everyday life.

She is a client-centered therapist supporting women through significant life transitions such as marriage, motherhood, divorce, & career evolution. Using aspects of the Wellness Approach within her practice, she helps you building upon what is right in your life, instead of focusing solely on what is wrong.
