This trauma generally shows up as anxiety, addiction, shame, guilt, low self-esteem, or interpersonal conflicts. Dr. Kapoor works with her clients to move past their trauma and develop hope. In her practice, she’s dedicated to being culturally informed and tailoring therapy to each individual’s needs.
Dr. Kapoor received training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, an evidence-based modality that helps clients’ brains get “unstuck” from trauma in their past. She also utilizes Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and Exposure Response Prevention Therapy (ERP) in sessions with clients to support a growing awareness of how thoughts inform mood and behaviors. Clients develop their goals for therapy and Dr. Kapoor teaches the skills necessary to reach those goals.

She brings compassion and care to each session with many certifications and lengthy experience in the mental health setting.
