Therapist in San Jose, California Meenal Jog, PhD

Meenal Jog, PhD

“In working with clients, I adopt a relational stance and use insight-oriented techniques and interpersonal feedback to help clients develop awareness of the patterns of interpreting and reacting to the world which may be contributing to their distress.

I work with adults who experience mood and anxiety concerns, relationship, adjustment and self-esteem issues, acculturation concerns, and trauma. I utilize an integrative approach to therapy that borrows from relational psychodynamic therapy, attachment theory, multicultural theories, acceptance and commitment therapy and compassion-based strategies. In working with clients, I adopt a relational stance and use insight-oriented techniques and interpersonal feedback to help clients develop awareness of the patterns of interpreting and reacting to the world which may be contributing to their distress. I utilize mindfulness and compassion based strategies to help clients step out of their automatic ways of being, and develop a stance towards their internal experience that is curious, compassionate and non-judgmental. In doing so, I endeavor to help clients access their authentic feelings and experiences that can be obscured by avoidance or other protective mechanisms. I also believe that psychological distress can be a reaction to experiences of stigma or dis-empowerment resulting from systemic inequities. In intervening with clients, I seek to understand how clients’ unique lived experiences and positions of power can shape how they navigate the world and understand themselves and others.

I work collaboratively with clients to determine which therapeutic approach will best support their goals. I am a Licensed Psychologist in both California and New Hampshire. I hold a Ph.D. and an M.Ed degree in Counseling Psychology from Lehigh University. I received my master’s and bachelor’s degrees in psychology in India.”
