INFORMATION FOR

Meet our Staff & Make an Appointment

We look forward to meeting with you! We are available, both in-person and virtually, at varying times during the day on weekdays, as well as outside of the traditional 9:00 am-5:00 pm, Monday-Friday model, especially for students on clerkships who may have more limited availability. Please go to our Bookings (appointment-making) sites to see which days in-person sessions are offered. After hours and weekend hours will be virtual only at this time.

If you are not sure if you should schedule a counseling appointment with Lisa or a wellness appointment with Sundari, just reach out to one of us and we will help you determine who would be the best fit for your needs.

She has over eight years of experience working with primarily families and individuals of color, and specializes in treating anxiety, depression, and OCD. She has worked in many different settings, including large non-profits, hospitals, and universities, and enjoys working with youth and young adults and helping them learn skills to better manage their lives both individually and in groups.

  • Student Wellness Counselor

    Sundari brings compassion, curiosity, and a wealth of knowledge from professional and personal experience to the student wellness counselor role. She holds dual master’s degrees in social work and public health from the University of Connecticut, where she specialized in behavioral health integrated care. Sundari has worked in diverse clinical settings (outpatient substance use treatment, primary care, women’s health care, higher education) and has developed strong interprofessional communication skills through her work with first- and second-year medical students at UConn Health/Connecticut Area Health Education Center. A registered yoga teacher and mindfulness facilitator, Sundari specializes in mindfulness-based interventions for stress and anxiety.
