Hi! My name is Smruti Desai and I am a licensed professional counselor in Decatur, GA. For the last 11 years, I have worked with clients of all ages from a variety of backgrounds. Much of my clinical experience comes from working in community based settings where I worked as a therapist and clinical supervisor. In addition, I have specialized training working with trauma, substance use, anxiety, grief, co-dependency, and family of origin concerns.
A focus of my life and work is bridging social justice and psychotherapy. I find it valuable to look at how the systems we live within impact our emotional health. I have specific experience working with people of color, first and second generation immigrants, and those who identify as LGBTQIA.
I graduated with a B.S. in English from Berry College and with a Masters in Counseling Psychology from The Seattle School.
In my free time, I enjoy cooking and trying delicious new food, seeing new movies(Hollywood and Bollywood), reading, going to yoga, hanging with loved ones, and trying to do my part to make the world a kinder and more just place.
