Hi there! I'm Saipriya. I deeply care about about mental health, stories and storytelling, and social justice, and I appreciate that my work as a therapist intersects with all three of these.
In terms of education, I have a BA in Psychology and Spanish & Latin American Cultures from Barnard College and an EdM in Counseling Psychology along with an MA In Mental Health Counseling from Teachers College, Columbia University. I have also received training in Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy, a model that helps us access a core sense of self and embrace all parts of us with curiosity and compassion.
I draw from my training and education in addition to my lived experience as of client of therapy and a human being with the identities I hold living under the oppressive systems in which we all live to provide warm, relational, and anti-oppressive care.
