Kanchan Sachdev

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Psychotherapy for children, adults, and couples

About Me

I received my master’s degree in Counseling Psychology with a concentration in Expressive Arts Therapy from the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) in San Francisco, CA.  My background also includes training in Gestalt therapy, Sandtray therapy, and Play therapy.  I blend western psychological orientations with eastern spiritual thought as a foundation to provide culturally-sensitive psychotherapy. 

Originally from India, I have been living in the US since 1997. I also have an education in business and computer programming. Through my previous careers in small-scale manufacturing units and large corporations in Silicon Valley, I have gained an appreciation for the rewards and demands of working in the hi-tech industry of the San Francisco Bay Area.

I am multi-lingual and provide therapy in English and Hindi.
