Dr. Rachna Buxani-Mirpuri is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) practicing in Florida and the founder of Buxani Counseling Care. She also has an established career as a counselor in Dubai and the Cayman Islands and continues to help international clients via HIPPA regulated video conferencing as a Board Certified Tele-Mental Health Provider (BC-TMH). She has practiced as a counselor for almost 20 years nationally and internationally; in government, private practice, and school settings. Her approach to helping provides an empathetic, non-judgmental, and safe environment for clients to heal and become resilient through the therapeutic process. This resilience-based, client-centered approach to therapy allows her to empower clients to reclaim the inherent strength that lies within them. She aims to provide affordable quality mental health support so that no individual or family suffers due to lack of access to such help.
Prior to her work as a LCMH, Rachna served as a Counselling Coordinator for 21 schools in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Through her experiences she has developed a keen awareness and understanding of the needs of young clients and their families. Specifically, she has extensive experience working with both teens and adults to overcome various challenges, including depression, anxiety, eating disorders, general life stresses, behavioral disturbances, interpersonal conflicts, and marital/familial dysfunction.
Rachna’s greatest strength when delivering interventions is her multicultural counseling experience. She is especially empathic to cultural dynamics in the context of mental health issues amongst clients. Through close collaboration with the client, she supports them in the process of change and aids with improving their overall satisfaction with life. Additionally, her Dialectical Behavior Therapy certification has resulted in her keen ability to teach mindfulness, relaxation, and distress tolerance techniques that provide clients with the skills necessary to navigate challenging life events.
Rachna is an active member of the American Counseling Association, American Psychological Association, and the American Mental Health Counseling Association.
