Supervised by Lacie Hamilton, LPC-S

“Do something you can be proud of each day and make it happen.”


I’m India! Thank you for taking the first step on your therapeutic journey with me.  I am an LPC Associate in Texas, supervised by Lacie Hamilton, LPC-S. 

I believe that everyone can change and grow at any time in their lives. I don’t believe that there is a limit to human capacity. 

Several years ago, I sustained a traumatic brain injury that rendered me with multiple acquired invisible disabilities. My own experience with therapy to helped me adjust to the new normal and during my experience I discovered new facets of myself that enriched my life’s tapestry and gave me the fortitude to push forward to obtain my master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, become a therapist and pay forward to my therapy clients, the healing that I received in therapy. 

Trauma can be a scary wilderness because it shakes you to the core of who you are. Therapy showed me that fear can be utilized as a powerful catalyst to motivate and elevate you to the next phase of your life. Most importantly, I learned I would not let the fear from my trauma determine my future and hold me back from achieving my life’s goals. Instead, I used it as fuel and was able to overcome my fears and the trauma. 

I aim for my work as a therapist to be living proof of the benefits and enrichment that therapy can be for one’s overall mental health. I am drawn to holistic approaches which allow me to consider the entirety of the client and to understand the world from their perspective while respecting their uniqueness as a human. When I am working with clients, I consider biological, psychological, environmental, and cultural aspects of clients’ lives because each of these aspects play a role in shaping the client’s worldview. In short, I like to meet clients where they are when they come to therapy, and I like to tailor the therapy to fit their uniqueness. 

From my perspective, the client is the expert in their lives and I, as the therapist, am a collaborator responsible for fostering empathy, respect, compassion and curiosity. I view the counseling relationship as more of a working collaboration with clients to address their reason(s) for coming to therapy. My areas of focus are concussions and traumatic brain injuries, disability, chronic pain, anxiety, depression, burnout, relationship issues, and life transitions. 

My therapeutic style consists of a blend of ingredients that are direct, collaborative, relaxed, relatable, compassionate peppered with a dose of humor. My therapeutic approach utilizes a strong foundation of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) Dialectical Behavioral Therapy(DBT), Narrative, Existential and Solution Focused modalities, enhanced with trauma informed care, developmental psychology and motivational interviewing. 

I look forward to working with you!
