About Me

Dr. Kanaventi is a licensed clinical psychologist who is passionate about working in a collaborative way to understand the needs of a person and provide support in a safe and empathic space. She believes the therapeutic process begins with developing a trusting relationship where the client is able to explore each person’s unique history in a respectful way to heal from pain and build resiliency.
