Malvika believes strongly in a person’s ability to choose their emotions thereby having the power to create their own emotion stories and destinies despite the challenges that life has thrown at them. Learning how to harness this choice is how therapy helps us reduce distress and maximize well-being. She is available for online and in-person sessions at Honey + Garlic.
