Prerana Patel, LPC
Licensed Professional Counselor
My philosophy is holistic and comprehensive. I customize my therapeutic approach to the needs of my client. My priority is to thoroughly understand your story and act as a facilitator on your explorative journey towards a better quality of life. I believe therapy is a collaborative experience, in which the therapist and the client work together to identify the client’s needs, goals and life values. Self-reflection and feedback are important pillars of my philosophy. I strive to create an honest, relaxed and safe environment to foster awareness, connection and growth in my clients. Mindfulness is another important component of my approach. I encourage the use of mindfulness practices to enable a positive and valuable internal evolution as desired by the client. I integrate evidence-based strategies with intuitive methods to help you gain stability, confidence and control in the life you want to live.
Who I Work With
Trauma is devastating. It can shatter your view of the world, leaving you feeling unsafe, angry, disheartened and hopeless. Anxiety is debilitating. It often feels discouraging, disorienting, and exhausting. Depression is heavy. It feels dark, lonely and vulnerable. I am here to tell you that it’s okay to feel this way, and that it IS possible to take back the control that you feel you have lost. I am here to help you navigate these feelings and experiences and to help you restore your power and balance in your life. I am here to help you reach your desired quality of life. I am here for YOU, to work with you, to support you, to encourage you to keep going to meet your goals.
