In today’s show, Charu talks to Gunjani Patel - a Licensed Mental Health Counselor who works with adults, children, couples, and families.
She received post-graduate training at The Village Family Service Center, a community mental health counseling center in Grand Forks, ND, where she worked with adults, couples, families, and children. Trained in both psychodynamic as well as family systems psychotherapy, she worked with families to identify overall family dynamics, including healthy and unhealthy patterns of interacting, roles, various communication styles, boundaries, and power structures. Gunjani was able to help couples and families by building on their existing strengths, raising awareness about their maladaptive patterns, and teaching them new ways of communicating and interacting.
Gunjani has spent several years working with women and children survivors of domestic and sexual abuse at a Community Violence Intervention center where she provided crisis counseling, suicide helpline and support for victims of rape, sexual abuse. Thus giving her exposure to a wide range of social, emotional, and mental health issues from sexual abuse, and domestic abuse, to depression, anxiety, PTSD and C-PTSD which led her to specialize in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing).
