Meet Your Therapist
Each clinician in the Nirodha Therapy Group is here because they believe in the same things:
We work in mutual consultation and refer business to each other
We work with consistent feedback from clients
We are present, open and grounded when delivering or receiving feedback
We are committed to our own personal growth and professional development
We are open and authentic with ourselves and others
In other words, you're in good hands. It's time to meet your new therapist.
