Multicultural Therapist In Chicago, IL - Natasha Bhamla
She/Her/They/Them
Intern

I am open to new clients at this time.

Whether in relationships, friendships, or therapy, I believe we heal in community. Drawing from my own experiences as a South Asian, Filipinx, and first-generation American, I understand the internal struggle of navigating multiple cultures. My aim is to create a nurturing, safe space where individuals can be fully seen and understood, integrating all aspects of their identities.

Before joining Best Therapies, I worked in spaces advocating for queer, transgender, immigrant, and BIPOC young adults, incorporating cultural humility, humor, and playfulness to challenge the Western narrative of wellness. My approach to therapy involves reframing fulfillment in a values-based, anti-racist context. I specialize in working with adults dealing with depression, anxiety, identity exploration, and attachment-based issues, using a multicultural, intersectional, and feminist lens. While I integrate CBT, DBT, psychodynamic, and IFS theories, I remain open to various approaches, recognizing clients as the experts of their own lives. I am honored to be a part of your journey.
