Kavita Bosamiya, MA, LPC
As we move through the story of life in time and space, we carry the past to the present, and the present to the future. Everyone’s story is unique and influences how they see the world and their place in it. However, there are common themes to these stories in that each experience can illicit positive or negative emotions, build or tear down self-confidence and enhance or deplete relationships. Therapy is about understanding the details of how life experiences have formed a person’s sense of self. When we encounter experiences that are confusing or negative, we can become disoriented and lose our sense of self. Increased awareness, insight and purpose allows to us find balance and a path forward.
Kavita recognizes that because all of us have unique life stories and goals, there is a need to provide an integrative approach, drawing on many different modalities tailored to each person’s strengths, life choices, and vision. She believes that the foundation of the therapeutic relationship is based on trust, acceptance, and genuine regard, and such relationship between client and counselor is paramount to facilitating change and growth. Her role is to create a collaborative, non-judgmental, open-minded space where you are free to be your true self and let down your guard.
