Kanti is a Hindi word that refers to radiance. It is also a name connected to my heritage. I am here today because of the many sacrifices, hard work, and resilience of my ancestors and family.
I interpret the word Kanti as our own unique momentum or energy within us. In the journey of mental health and well-being I wonder how we can harness our lived experience, wisdom, and skill within ourselves to keep us going and hopefully thriving. I offer my own lived experiences, knowledge about neuroscience, psychobiology, therapeutic practices (narrative therapy, critical social work, acceptance-commitment therapy, trauma, and Buddhist psychology), and research (using qualitative and quantitative methods) to guide and support you in your journey.
Because of my breadth of experience in cognitive and affective sciences, social research, and psychotherapy, I am able to provide a tailored- whole person (or organization) approach to counseling, mentoring, and program evaluation.
