After achieving her dream to be a computer engineer, Dr. Mukherjee worked in the software industry of different countries for many years as a software architect, a project manager, and as an entrepreneur. Subsequently, while volunteering extensively with at-risk population at different non-profits, a desire to acquire the necessary professional tools propelled her to become a licensed psychologist. Dr. Mukherjee believes that there is a lot of avoidable suffering which blocks individuals from realizing their true potential. Drawing on your existing hidden or manifest positive skills, she helps you in healing so that you can adapt, transform and reinvent yourself.

In therapy, depending on the client’s needs and goals, Dr. Mukherjee draws from various modalities including cognitive behavior (CBT), dialectics, solution focused, spiritual, and insight-oriented approaches. Her aim is to provide holistic and integrated health services with a focus on mental, physical, and spiritual wellness of the patient.

Since her doctoral research on the quality of life of Indian seniors who come to the United States to reunite with their adult children https://www.amazon.com/dp/1481027352, Dr. Mukherjee has continued working with seniors in various roles, and is a Board member with Sourcewise, the Area Agency on Aging in Santa Clara County.
