Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My Name is Prerna Rao and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family therapist. I have 5 years of experience working with the Adolescent population specific to ADHD, Bi-Polar, and depression. My experience has been predominately gained with probation minors and minors that are in the DCFS system, specifically from the ages of 11 ½-20. I have experience working with adults, couples, families and individuals specific to Trauma, Bi-Polar disorder, depression and phase of life issues. My goal is to help identify and reduce the stigma of mental illness in the Indian community and identify the importance of therapy as well as the benefits of identifying areas of improvements in one’s life.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Walnut Creek, CA

At the core of many personal issues lie old messages of your sense of worth. Those messages conveyed to you while growing-up that minimized your self-esteem. The journey inward toward your past can often be frightening and disheartening. By slowly revisiting the wounded part of yourself, old repetitive behaviors can cease to exist. A new sense of kindness toward yourself will begin to emerge. Allow me to travel with you to discover what is buried deep inside of your soul, exploring what keeps you from becoming all that you want to be.
