Dr. Deepti Vaswani is currently adding new clients to her waiting list for virtual psychotherapy.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist born and raised in California. Throughout my psychology career, I have worked primarily in hospital settings — where I treated children, adolescents, and their families. I have worked with individuals with both mental health and chronic medical issues, including psychosomatic seizures, gastrointestinal issues, neurological disorders, diabetes, cancer, transplants, and other medical conditions.
My clinical work has evolved into working with adults, more specifically with adult women, as I began to see the large impact women’s emotional health has on their families. I also recognized how the larger world has an impact on women’s wellbeing, which directly affects their families. In addition to my work with California Women’s Therapy, I also conduct psychological assessments to provide valuable information to families about possible developmental disabilities.
My Approach to Individual Psychotherapy
My empathy for others, my humor, my compassion, and my determination to help others to be emotionally well are what guide me both throughout my life and in my work as a psychologist.
My approach to individual psychotherapy is insight oriented. I believe in creating a safe space for women to explore their inner thoughts and feelings, to help them understand themselves more deeply and completely. I use empathy and unconditional positive regard to help develop a strong therapeutic relationship as a means to create trust and a non-judgmental foundation for the therapeutic work.
In my work over the past few years, I have found that empowering women to explore themselves and the impact of their social, cultural, and inner world helps them navigate their healing and growth. I have typically worked with women with depression, anxiety, trauma, chronic illness, and psychosomatic disorders. I have also worked with the self-esteem, patterned behaviors, relational issues, and work-life balance issues that are typically tied to the symptoms experienced.
At the end of my treatment, I want my clients to feel empowered and as though they have all the tools to recognize their full potential and to move forward with confidence.

Both individual psychotherapy & couples counseling are available through a secure video conferencing system.

Phone counseling allows clients to focus on their thoughts and emotions.
