Education & Expertise:
Meet Manasa Chitluri, a Licensed Counselor specializing in providing psycho-education & skills based counseling for individuals ADHD and working with individuals who have a history of high achievement, and who struggle with balancing this need to achieve with a desire to live a whole, authentic life.
Manasa earned a Master's degree from North Carolina State University and practices from the perspective of client-as-expert. She brings unconditional positive regard into each session and regularly checks in with clients to ensure they're feeling comfortable with their progression towards their goals, adjusting therapy direction accordingly.
Approach & Clientele:
Her approach includes reflecting on clients' families of origin and how early relationships impact who they are as adults and within interpersonal relationships. She encourages clients to reflect on the intricacies of relationships and how these intricate relationships have their own set of values, belief systems, and perspectives, all of which have an impact on their healing process.
Manasa works with both individuals and couples- her clients typically face major life transitions, anxiety, and relationship conflicts with their loved ones.
Clients will identify personal situations or thought patterns that can lead to unhelpful emotional responses. Clients learn to integrate emotion and reason, developing a "wise" mind that aims to increase their capacity for growth and understanding of the self. Through her psycho-education & skills based counseling sessions, Manasa teaches clients coping skills that allow their minds to function naturally and provides education on how ADHD works. This is especially helpful for those who feel a high amount of pressure to succeed, despite the challenges that come with neurodiversity.
As a client-centered therapist, Manasa offers a supportive and compassionate environment to help clients adjust to new ways of living and deepen their connection with those around them.
