A critical aspect for Neeti is working collaboratively with the client to identify their needs while incorporating evidence-based practices to promote one’s self-esteem, relationships, positive change, and outlook on life. She utilizes a multi modal integrative approach and tailors the therapeutic process to meet the needs of her clients while determining which modes and methods will be most helpful for treatment and recovery.She draws from several modalities including: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Mindfulness and Emotion Focused Therapy. Neeti works with individuals to promote their well-being by providing prevention and/or intervention techniques to support and embrace a growth mindset and helps with recognizing strengths and skills. In her work, Neeti encourages clients to identify goals, problem solve, develop and utilize coping skills, and advocate for themselves so as to enable them to feel empowered and independent.
