Welcome to DrSanthi.com

My name is Dr. Santhi Periasamy and I am a licensed psychologist located in Houston, Texas. I am trained as a doctoral-level counseling psychologist, and my specializations include working with eating issues, relationship challenges, family issues, PTSD/trauma, and multicultural issues.

In my perspective, therapy is an investment in your personal growth and a dedication to your overall well-being. Therapy can help us identify our strengths and personal successes, as well as help us to explore our areas of growth. I work hard to provide a trusting, warm, open, and supportive relationship for my clients. I believe that understanding our past and our current life patterns helps to foster internal growth, so that we can understand ourselves on a deeper level, create emotional well-being, and move towards contentment with ourselves and our lives.

My approach has helped some clients:

  • Find success in their relationship with self and others
  • Cope with the challenges of daily living (i.e. job stressors, relationships, balancing multiple life

    obligations, etc.)
  • Develop healthy coping strategies
  • Enhance fulfillment in one's overall well-being through the management and resolution of issues related

    to intimate relationship challenges, depression, family conflicts, trauma, eating and body image

    concerns, anxiety, academic and career difficulties, multicultural/diversity concerns, difficult life transitions,

    and substance issues.
