Doctoral Intern
Pronouns: She/Her/Hers

I invite clients to take a step into exploring their experiences and identities and am honored to be a part of that journey. I believe that you are the expert of your life and that sometimes you need a mirror to reflect on what you know about yourself. Given that, I strive to create a warm and genuine space where clients can be wholly themselves without fear of being judged. I want to honor the wisdom you have about yourself and simultaneously hold your desire for change.

Jaya is a Doctoral Intern in Health Service Psychology at Vanderbilt University’s Counseling Center. She is in her last year of her doctoral training in Counseling Psychology at Purdue University. Jaya has worked in various settings, such as university counseling, community mental health, and outpatient/inpatient centers. As a proud Desi-immigrant woman, Jaya incorporates an intersectional approach to therapy, viewing healing as a holistic and systemic process that requires attending to the wellness of the person and the systems within which they operate. She incorporates techniques from interpersonal therapy and CBT, through a systemic and multicultural framework. Her clinical interests include working with diverse individuals around dual-identity, intergenerational trauma, and cultural stressors. She also has an interest in working with mood disorders, adjustment issues, trauma, and psychological assessment. When not working, Jaya enjoys hiking, spending time with family and friends, and exploring fun food places in the city.
