Special Interests

Reshma is an engaging and welcoming therapist who is willing to meet each client’s unique and individual needs. She believes each individual has inherent strengths and attributes which can sometimes be overlooked. Reshma will identify and highlight natural strengths whilst employing therapeutic techniques in order to support each client towards reaching their goal. She takes pride in fostering empowerment and sustained success.

Reshma’s training and knowledge in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) will serve her clients well and will be used in creative ways, which meet each client’s personal style and presenting concerns. She has experience working with children, teens, and adults and has found great success through the use of behavioral interventions, which match the pace and comfort level for each individual.

Reshma’s therapy style is rooted in compassion, curiosity, mindfulness, multiculturalism, and at times laughter. When she isn’t working you will likely find her outdoors, exploring a new land, or in the ocean surfing!

Reshma received her Bachelors degree, with honors, from UC Santa Cruz, and a Masters in Psychology, Magna Cum Laude, from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. She is currently a Marriage and Family Therapist Intern under the supervision of Ernest Schmidt, LCSW, until she obtains license later this year.
