Shruti Talekar

Hi, I’m Shruti! I’m a second-year master's student at Duquesne University in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program. An area of great interest to me is mindfulness-based practices. I firmly believe in the transformative potential of mindfulness for promoting emotional well-being and personal growth. I am eager to learn more about integrating mindfulness techniques into therapy sessions. Being an immigrant myself, I hold a deep appreciation for cultural sensitivity and inclusivity. I understand the importance of recognizing and embracing diverse backgrounds and experiences in therapy. It is my goal to create a safe and inclusive space where clients from all cultures, races, and ethnicities feel valued and understood. Outside of my studies, I have a deep passion for design and illustration, as well as photography. These creative outlets have allowed me to develop a keen eye for visual communication, which I believe can be a powerful tool in therapy. I am excited to be a part of the team!
