In Ms Karthika we found the hope, guidance and therapy that we as a family needed to manage the problems our son was facing with his ASD. With Kartika's help we were able to understand why things were the way they were. We got clarity in how we should approach life with our son. Not just that, she built a good rapport with him and through the therapy and counseling sessions we have seen quite a few positive changes. His character has improved. His game addiction has reduced. He was not even confident in attempting one math problem. But he ended up getting a bunch of As and AAs in his final exams! (part due to therapy and part due to our and his tuition teachers efforts). It is kind of amazing to see how much could be achieved in behavior therapy sessions with very little medication.
I was diagnosed with OCD for more than 5 years now and was having a very difficult time with it. Have been on medication since 2015 but had minimal changes. It started affecting both my personal and professional life.
Doctor Karthika is extremely understanding and patient. As a psychologist, she gives you enough time to open up and explain your problems. There was no room for hesitation when it came to expressing my situation as she was very warm and welcoming. I highly recommend Doctor without a doubt as her demeanor is very approachable. She greets every patient with a warm smile. My experience was completely healing since she understood every facet of my problem and helped me overcome everything step by step. I'm extremely happy with my decision to proceed with her for my treatment since it was the best decision I've ever made. Have no doubt in mind. She's one of the few gifted psychologists!
I will not recommend her .
