Ruchika has been helping me close to a year now in managing myself more effectively. I was stressed and felt alone, helpless & a wreck of emotions. She helped me see things in a more realistic, reasonable way and suggested different tools of coping. She didn’t try to change me or deny my emotions at all but rather made me observe my emotions in a way that lets me retain the control. She also helped me identify certain patterns in my interactions and relationships. I can say that the sessions with Ruchika has made me appreciate myself and the world around me more. I would recommend Ruchika anyday. She is a very compassionate & extremely professional therapist.
