Professional statement

Meet Manasa Chitluri, a Licensed Counselor specializing in Coaching for 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 works with both individuals and couples- her clients typically face major life transitions, anxiety, and relationship conflicts with their loved ones.

Therapeutic Approaches:

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 coaching 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.

Client-Centered Approach:

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. 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 they have their own set of values, belief systems, and perspectives, all of which have an impact on their healing process.


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.

If you find something that resonates, contact Manasa today to schedule a consultation or learn more about her services.

Message to clients

I am grateful that your journey brought you here today.

In your life, you are the expert. Alongside that, I hope to provide a neutral space where you can challenge and confront beliefs that are no longer serving you, set and communicate boundaries with others, and build coping mechanisms to help you walk through life with intention.

Life is challenging and we all find comfort in connecting with others and receiving support. As your co-collaborator in therapy, I accept you as you are and strive to provide you with unconditional positive regard in a safe, non-judgmental, empathetic space.

We will create a plan and develop goals to fit your individual needs, and throughout the therapeutic relationship, we will revisit these goals and shift them as necessary.

I am passionate about matters of the mind, body, & spirit, and my ultimate hope is that you see yourself as someone who is worthy of love and belonging, just as I do.

Visit my website, complete the consultation questionnaire, and schedule a complimentary 20 minute consultation session with me. We all want to be heard, and I am here to listen.
