Dr Smriti Vallath (Ph.D) is passionate about justice and the rights of animals and humans alike.  With over 10 years in the field, Dr Vallath has focused on working with persons experiencing trauma-related disorders. Accordingly, she has trained in variegated trauma-focused psychotherapeutic approaches and is a strengths-based, collaborative and feedback-oriented practitioner, using somatic work, parts work, inner child practices, cognitive-analytical practices and healing narrative exposure techniques for treatment. Her research focuses on discerning various manifestations of trauma within other psychopathology, and its implication for mental health treatment and advocacy. When she’s not taking life too seriously, you’d find her cozied up with Netflix or vacationing in the most scenic places, often with food and company she enjoys.
