Welcome, I'm so glad that you are seeking support

If you feel like something is missing in your life, your heart, or your soul…

If you’ve tried everything you can think of to feel something different but nothing seems to work…

If you are you struggling with any of the following, you may benefit from counseling.:

  • feeling overwhelmed or burnt out
  • feeling lost, confused, or disconnected
  • overthinking or getting stuck in your head
  • over-doing, over-committing, or people pleasing
  • feeling like an imposter or not good enough
  • not knowing who you are or what you want to do
  • feeling like you are losing your mind
  • not knowing how to navigate life transitions and change
  • feeling burdened by dating or connection in relationship
  • not knowing healthy boundaries or how to communicate them

“Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart.

Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”



Arati Patel LMFT South Asian Therapist located in Agoura Hills and Ojai, CA

Welcome! I’m Arati Patel, I pronounce my first name like the letters R-T. I am a licensed marriage and family therapist as well as a yoga, meditation, and mindfulness facilitator.

As a first-generation South Asian therapist, I provide multicultural anxiety counseling and an integrative, holistic, and mindfulness-based approach to therapy. My goal is to help people feel more at ease, learn to be more present, let go, and embrace the sensation of calm.

My passion and heart lay in the union of mindfulness-based therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and solutions-focused therapy. With a combination of Eastern and Western psychology, I incorporate traditional talk therapy with mindfulness practices such as breathing exercises, energetics, visualization, meditation, and sometimes even yoga postures depending on what is appropriate for each individual.

Let’s connect! I would love to support you on your healing journey.
