Dr. Panchal focuses on a biopsychosocial model of therapy. Rooted in eastern psychology, she identifies as a Vedic therapist and brings a strong collaborative and relational approach to therapy built upon a body and mind connection. She highlights an individual’s strengths and recognizes that an individual’s mental health is tied to their environment, family, biology, and social systems along with their own self-identity. By integrating the individual’s entire identity, she believes that a more comprehensive type of healing can take place.
Dr. Panchal has particular
expertise and interest in working with depression, anxiety, identity
development, sexual dysfunction, and complex trauma alongside a specialty in
multicultural psychology, theory, and advocacy work within communities of color.
She provides individual, couples, and family therapy services as well as a wide
range of neuropsychological assessments.
Dr. Panchal earned her Doctor of Clinical Psychology with a minor in Diversity Studies from the Illinois School of Professional Psychology, and she is currently an adjunct professor of multicultural psychology and psychological assessment.
