Professional statement

Sapna Nair is a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor based in Carmel, CA, who works with individuals across the lifespan, with a focus on addictions, life transitions, and trauma. Many of her clients have found great success with their life transitions i.e., careers or academically, but struggle to feel connected in their relationships or at peace in their daily lives. Sapna works collaborative with her clients’ facing moments of transition in their lives and they are unable to manage their daily life stressor and find balance, calmness and peace which could lead to symptoms of anxiety, depression, and self-doubt can emerge.

Sapna’s approach is Eclectic where she can use the tools from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, EMDR, or Brief Solution Focused therapy to help support her client’s as they navigate understanding their traumas, values, thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and how they are all interconnected. She works to help clients identify and understand their physical response to external stressors, and teaches them techniques to problem-solve, ground themselves, and regulate their emotions.

Sapna is focused on ensuring that her clients not only see progress but are able to heal and move forward to living their quality life. Her style is interactive, non-judgmental, and she believes that clients are the experts in their lives i.e., they can heal themselves and move forward with living their life in balance and harmony. Sapna is a trauma-informed and culturally component therapist.

Sapna’s priority in starting with a new client is ensuring that they feel safe, heard, comfortable and like an equal partner in the therapeutic process. As a seasoned telehealth provider, she offers the convenience of remote sessions to help make therapy a core component of your self-care calendar.


Message to clients

I believe that it is important for you to feel safe and comfortable with me as your therapist. I believe that you are making an investment in yourself therefore it is important you connect with the right therapist.

I will ask you "how would you like me to support you today?" I will meet you where you during your sessions with me. I believe that this is your journey and healing and I am honored to walk beside you on your journey. I am open to listening and giving you the space to be vulnerable, to express yourself and in doing so learning to understand and embrace your true authentic self.
