About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    I am empathetic, funny, and brutally honest with my clients. I am easy to talk to. I lead with provoking questions and invite deeper self-exploration.

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    Therapy is not meant to be lifelong. I want to create and hold a non-judgmental space for my clients to explore their most authentic self. With the right tools you can create new pathways, break your own barriers, and heal from your trauma.

  • Together, we will:

    We will discuss all the intricate details that make you who you are, today. That means no judgement, no wishing to be different. I stand true to the roots of therapy where you are the expert of your life, and I, a source of guidance.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    I work with people who struggle to find meaning in their lives. Who cannot define happiness or are not certain if they have ever felt happy. My practice is eclectic. I utilize EMDR, mindfulness, and cognitive behavior therapy.

  • I became a therapist because:

    I had to create my own healing path after being born and raised in a conservative culture that did not understand or believe in mental health/healing.

  • Something that stands out about where I offer therapy is:

    I am a traveller at heart and want to create comfort and authenticity wherever life takes me. Online therapy combines both of my passions in life.

  • More about me and my practice:

    "Nava" Represents "New" in Sinhalese. My practice is built on breaking cultural barriers, inviting inclusivity and abundance. If I can help just one other individual find peace and happiness, I would succeed.
