About

My name is Vineeta. I am a warm and supportive therapist with a decade of experience working in the mental health field. I love my work, find the process of helping incredibly rewarding. Having lived and worked in the Middle East, Asia and North America, my work is culturally knowledgeable and sensitive. I am committed to helping you meet your goals from therapy as a partner.

 

APPROACH AND SPECIALIZATIONS

I practice talk therapy from a person centered approach. This means that my clients take the lead in sessions, and I facilitate the process by providing nonjudgemental and compassionate support.

I am also trained in Brainspotting, a powerful and focussed mindfulness technique that is effective for trauma, stress, grief, and anxiety.

 My practice is affirming and respectful of the rights and values of all clients, regardless of race, ethnicity, age, sexuality, gender identity, ability, immigration status, or religion.

EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE

I received my MA in mental health counseling from Montclair State University in New Jersey. During my graduate program, I completed my clinical internship in the behavioral health unit at Mountainside Medical Center in Montclair. I then worked as a psychiatric rehabilitation counselor in Singapore, providing individual and group therapy to adults and teens. Most recently, I was director of a neighborhood senior center in New York City for several years, where in addition to managing a vibrant program, I provided emotional and tangible support to older adults. I was honored with a proclamation by New York City Councilman Keith Powers for my service to the community upon leaving this role. I hold a limited permit to practice counseling and psychotherapy in the state of New York. My practice is part of the counseling services in Saint Peter’s Church in Midtown Manhattan, however, my work does not incorporate any religious elements.
