Hello! I am Deepa, a practicing psychotherapist in Mumbai, India. I cherish working with couples, and witnessing their move towards kinder and nurturing relationships - with self and the other.

I’m a Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapist, and Queer Affirmative Counselling Practitioner. I have trained and practiced in outpatient clinics in Boston, USA and via private practice and family courts in Mumbai, India. I currently run a mental healthcare organization, Dance for Mental Health (dMh), where we offer online psychotherapy and psychosocial support from an embodied systems approach.

My approach is couple-centric, embodied, somatic, relational-cultural, trauma informed, and queer affirmative. You are welcome to connect with me to identify if we are a good fit for couples therapy - at any stage of your relationship(s). Stay well, thanks!
