Welcome. My name is Vikash, and I am a Clinical Social Worker licensed to practice in the state of Texas. My experiences range from embodying roles of advocacy, therapy, case management, outreach, and education. I have worked primarily with POC and other American Cultural Minority populations, including South Asian survivors of domestic and sexual violence, 2SLGBTQIA+, and many others.
My approach to the therapy space is eclectic, borrowing from many different schools of psychology, each of which shares a common belief in the ultimate ability to empower the innate strength and goodness present in all of us. The schools that I most commonly pull from are Humanism, Gestalt Psychology, and Social Work Systems theories.

I believe that therapy is meant to be a space of mutual collaboration, to help work towards and help understand those aspects of your life that motivated you to seek guidance. I embrace a client-centered approach of unconditional positive regard designed to empower your inner strength, all in the service of helping you achieve your desired clinical outcomes.

As a second generation South Indian, I have extensive personal and professional experience with model minority stressors, cultural trauma, immigration abuse, religious abuse, and various other struggles common for those that identify as a minority in America. My goal is to help create a validating space that encourages self-exploration, understanding, self-love, and an innate ability to embrace all of who you are – even when that can be the hardest thing to do.
