Akshita Vaidyanathan, MSW, LSWAIC

Description of Counselor/Practice

Openings as of May 31, 2022: Being a person of color and part of the queer/trans community can feel isolating and lonely. If, like many people with these identities, you also have experienced trauma, this can make connection more challenging. Not to mention living in a capitalist, patriarchal system that is at odds with your values. If you long for greater connection with yourself, others, and meaningful work, you're in the right place. You deserve an empowered, supportive space to meet your past and present selves. Together, we can co-create a collaborative healing space where you can become aware of patterns, sit with & move through difficult emotions, and approach relationships with vulnerability, compassion and boundaries. Through this process, you can learn how to live out your most authentic path forward. I practice from an intersectional feminist lens. My style is conversational and informal. I focus my work on meeting the needs of people of color, especially those who identify as LGBTQIA+, neurodivergent, polyamorous, and/or having immigrant experiences. If you resonate with what I wrote, please reach out and our Care Coordinator will get back to you as soon as possible.
