Shruti Pillai

Certified in Attachment Based Family Therapy

Shruti believes life can get overwhelming easily when the relationships we rely on begin to feel distant. To her, our primary loving relationships are a cornerstone of secure adult attachment and she has a passion for working with couples struggling with loss of trust, communication difficulties, challenging transitions of life, and other relationship stressors. She is trained in Gottman Couples Therapy, Attachment Based Family Therapy, and Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). Shruti uses a collaborative approach to therapy that appreciates the uniqueness of each client’s experience and tailors treatment to their strengths and needs.

When you work with Shruti, you can expect a therapist who:

→ Creates a space where you feel both challenged and invited to be honest, brave, and vulnerable.
→ Finds humor in the complexities of relationships and life.
→ Encourages healing through collaboration and compassion.

Individual Therapy

We utilize “whole-person” psychotherapy and attune to not only what’s going on for you psychologically, but also physiologically, biologically, spiritually, and socially.

Our therapists specialize in affair and betrayal recovery and helping couples navigate infertility.


While there are many ways of supporting clients in resolving and integrating the invisible wounds of trauma, EMDR is an evidence-based approach that has shown to be highly effective and efficient.
