Happiness Happens

Feb 15, 2021

Gunjani Patel is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Life & Wellness Coach, Speaker, a Writer and now a Podcast Host of Traumatic Transformations. She runs a private practice called GPatelCounseling in San Diego California and Florida. She specializes in Depression, Anxiety, Trauma, Addictions, Grief & Loss.


She is also a new mom to a 22 month old hyper-energetic but a very lovely boy, and is in the process of relaunching herself after being on a hiatus for the last few years.


Her newfound vision in life is to spread mental health awareness and normalize it, to break the stigma associated with help-seeking. So to bridge that gap she recently launched a podcast called Traumatic Transformations. In each episode, she plans to share science-backed actionable tips, tools, and strategies to help people learn more about mental health, be inspired, get hopeful, change mindset and live the best versions of themselves.
