Dr. Ramani’s practice is focused on working with adult clients. Much of her work is on working with clients who are experiencing relationship or workplace difficulties secondary to difficult personalities within those contexts (e.g. relationships with narcissistic partners, working with difficult supervisors). She also brings clinical experience in working with clients with depression, anxiety, eating disorders, substance use issues, and personality disorders. Dr. Ramani also brings expertise in health psychology and in integrating mind and body to understanding barriers to weight loss, managing chronic illness, and managing stress and health holistically. She works from an intersectional perspective and integrates understanding a person wholly and with regard to the intersections between gender, race/ethnicity, culture, social class, sexual orientation, nationality, disabilities and age.
Dr. Ramani offers several approaches and formats for therapy and consultation depending on your needs. Her focus largely derives from a humanistic/existential format – focusing on where the client is at, understanding their subjective experience, and also focusing on taking responsibility within any given context with a goal of maximizing individual potential.
She also works on a consultative, problem focused manner with clients who require psychoeducation on the impact of personality issues – particularly narcissistic, antisocial/psychopathic/sociopathic, compulsive, and dependent patterns on their personal and professional relationships.
