MEET THE PRACTITIONER: VINODHA JOLY, LMFT
Hello and Welcome! If you are seeking a therapist, you are probably feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or in emotional pain. You don't have to struggle alone - I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist dedicated to helping you heal. I provide a safe, non-judgmental and supportive environment where you can feel seen, understood, validated, and empowered to identify and make the changes needed to lead a more fulfilling life.
My practice is informed by scientific research on the neurological underpinnings of our emotional, mental and physical states, by ancient Eastern wisdom traditions such as mindfulness, as well as my training in trauma-informed integrative modalities, such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy.
Having grown up in several countries across different continents, I am multi-culturally competent and well aware of the issues of identity and other challenges faced by immigrants in a new country, as well as the unique experiences of people from different ethnic and cultural groups.
I am quite familiar with the stresses of working in this fast-paced Silicon Valley and the struggles of balancing work, family and personal endeavors, as I worked as a researcher and software engineer in the high-tech industry for over a decade, before discovering my passion in psychology and transitioning to a vocation as a psychotherapist.
I am committed to improving my skills, knowledge and expertise through continued education, consultation and clinical training, as well as my own personal psychotherapy, to ensure that you receive safe and effective treatment with the highest standard of care. Seeing the positive impact that my work has in the lives of others fills me with gratitude, and I am so honored to be a witness to the transformational changes in your life.
If you are considering therapy, I would be happy to see you for an initial 20-minute consultation at no charge. Contact me to schedule your initial consultation now.
