Sharon Mead & Associates

Diya Sen, AMFT, APCC 

I am thrilled to add Diya to my practice because she is such a bright and caring presence.  She comes highly recommended from people I respect.  I have seen for myself her skills in working with couples and individuals and they way she listens and helps them feel safe, respected and validated.

By supervising Diya's work with couples, I have the opportunity to serve more couples at a lower price point or on weekends. I feel confident they are getting the great care.

Approach to therapy

   

You are already taking that first difficult step in looking for help.  At some point in their life, everyone needs a safe space to talk, vent, express, retrospect, process, and explore.  I can help you make sense of the complex issues in your life as the therapeutic process unfolds.

 

I have been working with a wide range of individuals, couples, and families since August 2018.  I offer a safe, supportive, and collaborative environment for all clients.  I have a compassionate presence that will help you understand, explore, process, and resolve problematic relationships, feelings, emotions, and negative behavioral patterns. 

 

I strongly believe that every individual is different; no two relationships is the same. Everyone’s experiences are unique to each one of us. My approach to therapy uses a balanced blend of attachment based and systemic approaches. I work mostly with tenets of EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy), Polyvagal theory, ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), Narrative therapy, and mindfulness-based practices. I offer every unique individual, couple or family their own unique space in their working relationship with me.

Personal Background

 

I grew up in India and came to the United States in 2015.  In addition to English, I also speak Bengali and Hindi.  I became a therapist after 13 years of rigorous practicing, teaching, and performing Odissi dance, a classical Indian dance form.

I learned hard work and flexibility are necessary to handle all the ups and downs of modern life with diverse groups of people.  From working internationally, I learned that people are individuals, but that culture plays a big role in the way we see the world.  I have experience with intercultural couples and families that I bring to my understanding of your story.

Insurance and fees

 

I am not in network for any insurance plans, but will provide you with a Superbill you can submit to your insurance.

 

I can accept benefits cards such as Health Savings Accounts and other tax favored health plans.

 

I accept credit and debit cards as well as checks and cash. Payment is due at the time of service.
