Meera is a Licensed Professional Counselor who works with individuals, couples and families to bring about positive change that will help them cope with the life situation that is hampering their ability to function at an optimal level. Meera has worked in diverse therapeutic settings –  psychiatric hospital, out-patient clinic, EAP counseling, community counseling center, managed care and private practice. This has given her the ability to provide a safe and non-judgmental environment to her clients no matter what their presenting problem.

After doing her Ph.D. in Biochemistry, Meera worked in the area of medical research before deciding that what she really wanted to do is work with people. She went back to school and got a Masters degree in Family Therapy and has never looked back.

Meera works with those suffering from anxiety, depression, stress, relationship problems, work related problems and self-esteem issues. Her preferred approach is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) because it empowers clients to find and implement strategies to change problematic behavior.  Meera helps clients to define their goals and uses a Solution Focused approach to assist and support them in their journey to acquire tools to manage their life. Meera also teaches Anger Management to individuals and helps them and their families learn how to build communication skills and conflict resolution skills.
Meera is multilingual and speaks three Indian languages: Hindi, Urdu and Kannada.
