Psychology requires analytical skills, but it’s also an evolving art and science. The most effective therapists must be open-minded enough to challenge previously held assumptions about human behavior and consider new theories as society changes. The human mind is highly complex and ever-changing, and psychologists must be equally adaptable to new findings in the field.
Dr. Rupa Mehta is a passionate practitioner in the field of clinical psychology who divides her time between clinical practice, training and consulting, and scholarly writing. In her clinical practice, she delivers therapy and other treatments to adult and adolescent clients with a wide range of emotional, behavioural, and adjustment problems, such as anxiety, stress, depression, and relationship problems, including sexual problems.
She finds it gratifying to introduce clients to counselling. She has had the privilege of witnessing dramatic transformations in clients with depression, anxiety disorders, personality disorders and addictions. She is eager to apply her experience and expertise with clients as they begin to address issues that will help them to improve their quality of life and attain a sense of fulfillment.
Rupa received her degree with Honours from Mumbai University and her Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Princeton University. Her previous academic positions include Research Associate Princeton University, Assistant Professor at Shivaji University, Kolhapur, and her previous clinical positions include Clinical Psychologist at The Mind and Health Center in Nagpur and later, in Mumbai.
She is a member of many professional organisations, including Indian Academy of Applied Psychology (IAAP) Life Membership, Indian Journal of Personality & Clinical Studies. She is currently working on several book/writing contracts.
