Vinnu Komanapalli, MA, LMHC

Description of Counselor/Practice

Over the past six years, it has been such a pleasure walking with my clients through their journeys of healing and change. I have had the privilege of sitting with parents struggling through the heartache of divorce, immigrants and children of immigrants who are making a home against all odds, college students fighting dominant culture norms, survivors of marital abuse, and those fighting to escape their childhood trauma. Before becoming a therapist, I worked in education and non-profits in India, and I am astounded, then and now, by the human capacity for resilience and strength in the face of hardship. I have worked in private and community clinics with clients of all backgrounds; today I take particular pleasure in working with adults who identify as helpers, healers, advocates, caregivers, and parents who, laboring to support others, seek support for themselves. I am trained in Relational-Cultural, EMDR, Mindfulness, and Cognitive Behavioral therapies. As an Adult TCK who has immigrated from South India, I hold a trauma-and-culture responsive lens, and have a special place in my heart for work with South Asians, immigrants, children of immigrants, and anyone who feels like an outsider, trying to make a home. On a case by case basis I also enjoy working with children over age 13, and with families, particularly if you are unable to find a BIPOC or South Asian client.
