About Surabhi Jagdish
Thanks for stopping by and checking me out. I know searching for a therapist can be challenging. The idea of therapist hopping feels daunting; I get it!
Here’s a little about me to help you make this important decision for you.
I graduated from the University of Houston- Clear Lake in 2014 with a Master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy.
I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT). What does that mean?? Basically, whether I’m working with an individual or a relationship, I’m considering who and what may play a role in your life and your decisions-the whole picture.
I am a first-generation South Asian woman. Being a daughter of immigrants, I understand the complexities of balancing two (sometimes contradicting) cultures.
I believe we do the best we can with what we have in front of us. When the tools have become outdated, we look for alternatives-this becomes the foundation for a new way.
Working with me looks like compassion meets thought-provoking. My mission is to understand you and your story and learn what you strive to see for life. Growing is messy and hard, but the choice lies with you. There are really two options, either you can choose the tough road of living the struggle or choose the road of trying something new. Though the healing is rough, I promise to support you while discovering the nooks and crannies to a more healed space.
Not your Average Therapist
I am passionate about helping others and inspiring growth and change. In my own self-work and healing, I learned the best part of my life was waiting on the other side of my fears. For more years than I’d like to admit, I believed something or someone would help make life better. What I didn’t realize was that the power was ALWAYS within me. My hope for you is we work together to discover your power.
What we aren’t taught is that number one is important- THE most important. When we take care of ourselves fully, we can live and love the way wholly. Now, make no mistake, I am a growing healing person, just as you are. Sometimes my fears can get in the way, and I have to reassess. The answers to your life are not mine to decide, so I’m not going to tell you what to do. BUT, I will help, hold, guide, and highlight for you what YOUR life’s desires are, and together we will work to find your light.
