A Bit About Ektha

Hi! I am the Founder and CEO of Shakti Therapy and Healing Services based in Los Angeles, CA.  As a ketamine therapist and South Asian therapist in Los Angeles, my practice uses a holistic and psychotherapeutic approach to help you realize that you are an integral part of the vast and complex web of life - that the health of the whole is intimately connected with the health of the individual.


I believe you are not separate from nature, from yourself or even each other - that in a very real way, every one of your decisions and actions affects all of these realms. As a South Asian therapist in Los Angeles, combining both ancient Eastern and the most up to date scientific modalities, my work stems from a basis of connection - mind to body, human to nature, individual to community, physical to spiritual, past to present to future.


Being a South Asian therapist in Los Angeles and a ketamine therapist, I specializes in working with three communities:

  • People who are looking to connect with their higher self and identify their purpose in life through holistic therapy.

  • People of color to break the stigma around mental health. I am your South Asian Therapist in Los Angeles (Indian, Desi)

  • People seeking to connect with their inner child and heart center through ketamine assisted psychotherapy.

During my free time you can find me hiking the many waterfalls in Los Angeles, punching out my stress with Muay Thai, or enjoying a glass of wine.  Weekends has a time for me to renourish with acupuncture, beach picnics, and reconnecting with friends and family! I love LA...if you're looking for something to connect with in this city, reach out and I'll share some fun recommendations!
