Ameet obtained his doctorate in clinical psychology from Temple University in 1999. He has had a psychotherapy practice for over 10 years with a focus on helping people make changes in a warm, non-judgmental environment. He has helped many people make positive life changes for a wide range of issues, including depression, anxiety disorders, relationship conflicts, parenting issues, confusion over gender identity or orientation, and borderline personality disorder.
Healing body and mind
Ameet also offers classical homeopathic consultation. Classical homeopathy was developed by Samuel Hahnemann over 200 years ago, and is practiced around the world in dozens of countries.
Homeopathy’s goal is to help strengthen the constitution and thereby raise the general level of health of the patient, and not to treat any particular disease or illness. However, by supporting the body’s own wisdom, homeopathy has helped children and adults struggling with chronic health issues, repeated infections, and emotional and behavioral difficulties.
When working with adults, Ameet typically meets one-on-one for at least one initial consultation (often several times), to develop along with the client a full picture of the difficulty, when and how it started, the types of stressors that might be maintaining it currently, and how it affects the ability to live a full life. Although this is not, strictly speaking, psychotherapy, clients often report having much greater insight into the conditions of the problem and how to heal from it, just from the consultative process. This is followed by suggestions, if appropriate, of homeopathic remedies that might help assist with the healing process.
For acute issues, a brief consultation can be arranged so that the client can begin making use of homeopathy as soon as possible.
When consulting with children's issues, Ameet's approach is to meet with both the child and the parent to develop a holistic sense of the child’s temperament, physical constitution and chronic health patterns. By matching this portrait to the profiles of various homeopathic remedies, he is able to suggest ones that will best support a return to good health.
In all cases, homeopathy should be seen as complementary to the client's use of conventional medical treatment. Ameet welcomes collaboration with medical professionals who are treating the client for his or her health issues.
Ameet has trained with the British Institute of Homeopathy and has been practicing homeopathy since 2007.
Ameet is the father of two wonderful children, and is a long-time resident of Mt. Airy, Philadelphia.
