Dr. Sanjay Gulati is a psychiatrist in Cambridge, Massachusetts specializing in learning disabilities, couples counseling, and family conflicts, especially in the context of navigating cross-cultural challenges. He is an expert in supporting children, adolescents, and young adults on the autism spectrum and members of the deaf and heard of hearing communities. With a focus on socially oriented therapies, he works closely with his clients in providing guidance around developing social skills, navigating relationships with family and peers, and learning to practice self-acceptance. He also enjoys working with couples, taking an engaged approach to help both partners resolve conflicts and better understand each other.
Dr. Gulati’s style is nuanced and individually tailored to each client's and couple’s circumstances. He utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Existential Therapy, and mindfulness practices, while offering the convenience of both talk therapy and medication management when appropriate.
Drawing from personal experience and academic work in deafness and hearing loss, Dr. Gulati has a deep understanding of the challenges around one’s body changing or being different from others'. He understands that people are much more than their medical diagnoses, and he is excited to help his clients look beyond labels to explore their narrative and embrace their unique identity.
