She has had the privilege of working with adolescents and young adults from varied cultural backgrounds.
Anisha offers specialized expertise in areas including Anxiety, Depression, Eating Disorders, Body Image, Self-esteem, Suicidal Ideations, Self-Injurious Behavior, and gender/sexuality identity exploration. She provides unwavering support to survivors of gender-based violence. In her therapeutic approach, Anisha emphasizes trauma-informed care and seamlessly integrates a variety of therapeutic techniques such as psychodynamics, internal family systems, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT).
Educated at Virginia Commonwealth University with a B.S. in Health Sciences, Anisha further honed her skills with a Master's in Social Work from New York University. She was drawn to the world of therapy out of a deep commitment to advocating for Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) youth.

Besides being fluent in Bengali, Anisha is passionate about self-expression. She regularly attends Pilates classes and revels in the beauty of classical Indian dances like Odissi. An avid reader and a lover of books, she often indulges in the simple joy of an iced latte while adding to her burgeoning book collection.
