My psychiatrist Prerna is such a kind hearted soul; she patiently listened to me go over all my issues at my own pace. She was honest with me and together we came up with some helpful, easy to implement coping strategies.
I had a great experience with Prerna. She helped me make consistent efforts towards overcoming my addictive behaviour patterns. She was direct but also warm and encouraging in her approach, which proved very beneficial in my case. I got a reality check in terms of what I was missing out on due to my addiction, and Prerna helped me get back on track.

I was struggling with depression for a while, but I always brushed it off. It is so much easier to let your issues accumulate until it starts to get unbearable. I am really thankful to Prerna for helping me acknowledge the consequences of leaving my emotions unaddressed. I see myself as much more capable of handling my reactions to adverse situations now. soon!
