Therapist Berkeley postpartum
Hi, I'm Mallika.

I am inspired and humbled by the human experience. For over 25 years, I have been seeking to understand and be with this experience more fully. This has taken many forms. 

I spent many years living and working in the creative process, playing, writing, feeling and expressing through a number of artistic modalities. This was a rich and deeply nourishing time for me. But eventually, I began to feel that my work was not serving others the way I wanted.


I returned to school and earned my Masters in Clinical Psychology. I began working as a therapist and seeing clients in 2011. I have developed a unique passion for working with clients in and around their experience of motherhood. I continued my education to study and teach from the RIE framework of raising children.


I have pursued my interest in ceremonial ritual, ancestral healing and earth-based medicine through work with various teachers and personal experiences. This is currently my area of focus as I take a sabbatical to dive deeper into these modalities and practices. I plan to return with offerings that incorporate these aspects of healing as I have found them powerful, connecting and transformative.
