Neeraja "Nee" Badrinarayan, LMHCA
Having a space to be ourselves without shame, worry or fear can be a powerful catalyst for healing. Together, we will create spaces where we tackle challenges and pain you may be experiencing in your life, notice the functions that these patterns serve, identify inherent strengths, and engage in reflection without judgement. I welcome laughter and creativity in our space together. Making the decision to access therapy is in itself a sign of your inherent strength.
I take a client-centered, trauma-focused, queer feminist approach to therapy drawing on theories such as narrative therapy, internal family systems therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, interpersonal neurobiology and mindfulness. Additionally, I am fully trained in EMDR. My experiences as a queer woman of color and an immigrant helps me conceptualize individuals through a global and multicultural lens, where I draw on my own knowledge and am constantly learning through the knowledge of my clients.
My professional experience includes providing services at an in-patient substance use center, high schools, middle schools and out-patient community services. I work primarily with adults, adolescents and have experience working with family systems.
