Gautham is a pre-licensed counselor and has his MA in Counseling Psychology from the University of Minnesota. He believes that in order to be “happy”, we need to have positive and healthy support systems in our life, we must actively work towards understanding what affects us positively and what doesn’t, and then start creating positive habits, which then positively shapes our perception of the self and the world around us. Most of us try hard not to make mistakes but Gautham believes that we must embrace and learn from our mistakes, we must see it as an opportunity to learn rather than something that needs to be avoided. Gautham believes in creating balance for oneself, which can be achieved through mindfulness practices and being kind to one-self. Change occurs when we decide that we want to change something for ourselves, yet getting to that realization or even working towards it can be difficult, but it is also more meaningful in the process. Areas of clinical interest: trauma, depression, anxiety, personality disorders, Gautham spends his free time consuming online content, playing with his cat, Korra and playing some video games.
