Sonia Dhaliwal, PsyD
Dr. Dhaliwal is a Licensed Psychologist in the state of Nevada. She received her Doctorate of Psychology at Pacific University in Oregon in 2011. She works with a diverse clientele and specializes in providing social justice-oriented psychotherapy to BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, Persons of Color) as well as members of LGBTQIA+ communities.
Dr. Dhaliwal provides culturally responsive therapy, which focuses on one’s strengths. She tends to use an Interpersonal Process theoretical approach (IPT) as well as a cognitive-behavioral theoretical approach (CBT) while paying attention to one’s environment and access to social support. It is important to build a strong therapeutic relationship, as well as paying close attention to what is happening to you in the moment.
Dr. Dhaliwal finds it helpful to work to understand the different beliefs that we bring into the room, and how these worldviews might affect our interactions. Understanding how your thoughts are related to your behaviors can empower and help you to actively account for your reality. She believes one can use this insight to make the changes that will be necessary to live life more healthily.
