Hi, my name is Sumathy Applewhite. I was born and raised in San Jose, CA. I received a Bachelor Degree in Psychology in 2004 from the University of Kansas. I earned a Master of Science in Social Work from Columbia University in 2008. I take a genuine interest in every individual that I work with as human beings and not just as a “client”. I work very hard to ensure that therapy feels authentic with a natural and productive flow.This work is my passion. I’ve wanted to be a therapist since high school. I wanted to be what I didn’t have as a multiracial, only child, growing up with parents who abused drugs and alcohol and would often get violent with each other. I have always wanted to be someone that could support others in their journey and struggles with racial and sexual identity and who they are without the labels; what I needed during my journey and struggles with the same. Depending on the needs of the client, my approach can extend to psychodynamic, family systems, brief solution focused and cognitive behavioral therapies. My clients have expressed that my sessions leave them feeling cathartic and a real human connection.
