Professional statement

Nirmal is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker based in Bend OR. Her direct approach helps her clients achieve their relationship goals with kindness, humor and wisdom.

Nirmal uses body centered techniques along with insight oriented therapy to help her clients better understand their emotions - why you have them, what they mean, and what they are trying to communicate. Instead of ignoring or overindulging in the fear, anxiety or sadness, you will be guided to a greater understanding of why you have these emotions and what to do with them. Along with talk therapy Nirmal utilizes breath-work and guided meditation to create greater sensitivity in order to understanding oneself and ones needs.

EMDR and other Body-Centered treatments recognize the intimate relationship between the human body and psychological well-being. Using cues from the body, Nirmal helps her clients access memories, emotion, and outdated beliefs that usually lie beyond the daily thinking mind, but nevertheless have an affect on or daily lives and relationships. Nirmal's approach will help you bring the unconscious and semiconscious material to the surface so it can be resolved it once and for all.

She is available for in person sessions in her office in Bend or remotely in the state of Oregon.
