Seeking support is not often easy, and in engaging with therapy you have taken a very important step. I believe that there is no single therapeutic method that works for all people, and I instead look forward to meeting you where you are, building a trusting relationship, and collaborating with you on your goals while we create a personalized path towards empowering you and reducing your suffering. In walking this path together, we can work towards a better understanding of your Self, including your joys, sorrows, challenges, and strengths, as well as how you navigate the world. I look forward to developing a bond in the therapy relationship built on validation, shared experiences and interests, and humor.
Through work and training at Malcolm X College and DePaul University, as well as completion of my doctoral internship at Johns Hopkins University, I have learned to appreciate the strengths and resources clients bring into the therapy room, and I will work with you to enhance them and use them creatively to address your needs. I have been privileged to support people from diverse populations grappling with family and relationship problems, life transitions and adjustments, identity development issues, experiences of violence and oppression, and mental health concerns including depression and anxiety.
Outside of my therapy practice, outreach and consultation are both important to me. I am committed to destigmatizing mental healthcare for men of color. I advocate for combating systems that uphold oppressive and colonized ways of thinking and being, which has led me to engage more directly with the communities I serve to better understand their needs, resources, and strengths on a larger scale. I also promote anti-racist education and initiatives, applying these lessons directly to my practice, as well.
If you feel that working with me may be the next step on your therapeutic journey, I encourage you to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.
Rohit is also one of the co-leaders of the Men of Color Group. More information on working with him as a part of that group can be found here: https://www.centerfocusedtherapy.com/therapy-groups
