About Kashmita Prasad

I use an integrative approach to therapy. This helps me as the clinician to find what foundations would work best for the client (e.g. individual, couple or family) and this approach also helps the client have a say in what approach would work best for them.

I work a lot with adolescents and young adults about life transitions, self-esteem issues and personal problems that are high among these age groups: (e.g. bullying, depression, anxiety, substance use, peer pressure, sexual identity etc.) and advocate a lot for community support.

I have worked as an associate clinical in multiple community mental health agencies for 2 ½ years and recently started to work with Fremont Counseling Services on July 2018 as an Associate Therapist.

I am a huge advocate of self-care and taking time to enjoy the little things in life. I love to swim, eat and cook different dishes from other cultures, and participate in a lot of active routines: dance, marital arts etc.

I am a member of the California Marriage and Family Therapist Association and the Asian American Psychological Association

I speak English and Hindi and able to provide therapeutic services in both languages.
