Smita Kapoor, DMFT, LMFT

EMDR Therapist in Berkeley, CA

Smitha Kapoor

Meet Smita: Hello! I’ve been working in the field of therapy since 2014. I received my Masters and Doctorate degree from Loma Linda University and my undergraduate degree in Child Development from Union Institute and University in Cincinnati Ohio as well as another degree in Psychology from Kumaon University, Almora, India. I was always interested learning about human brain, early attachment experiences and attendant impacts on our growth. My professional career has included teaching graduate and postgraduate level students as an adjunct professor, providing one on one psychotherapy in group practices as well as being a clinician in both outpatient and inpatient settings..

My EMDR Therapy Specialties in Berkeley:

I specialize in working with teens (16 years and older) and adults on the following issues:

PTSD, C-PTSD, complex trauma, attachment trauma
● Disordered eating
● Shame
● Addiction
● OCD, anxiety, stress and burnout
● Depression

I am a culturally reflective clinician and am LGBTQIA+ affirming.

Please note: I can conduct all therapy services (including EMDR) in Hindi as well as English.

What drew me to this work: My own healing journey and desire to destigmatize both mental health care and the experience of trauma led me to this work. I truly believe that mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being and every one of these aspects affects how we think, feel, and act. I also believe that often in life, challenges can become overwhelming and that no one should have to go through them alone. I want to be that support person for you.

My style: Direct, warm, engaged, relational, evidence-based.

Services I offer: I currently offer online video counseling using EMDR for residents of California.
