"As human beings, our job in life is to help people realize how rare and valuable each one of us really is, that each of us has something that no one else has—or ever will have—something inside that is unique to all time. It’s our job to encourage each other to discover that uniqueness and to provide ways of developing its expression.” - Mr. Fred Rogers

Hi, I’m Anil Arora, and I am a native to Denver, Colorado. As a first generation Indian American, I have had the opportunity to have personally experienced cultural differences, interracial relationship dynamics, and healthy boundaries. My culture has created a strong foundation in my sense of connection, compassion, and respect.
As I began to further my education, I was intrigued by the need to understand the mind and behaviors related to individuals, so I pursued my bachelor’s in psychology from CU-Boulder. While I spent time studying, I worked at a private practice for troubled teens with addiction and children on the autism spectrum. The focus was not only helping the individual but the entire family system. I believe that it is important that we service the whole person, which is why relationship therapy is key.
Exploring my own cultural vulnerability, along with being my authentic self in a bicultural relationship was a process. That experience has helped me understand the important of being my true self individually and relationally. I want to support your journey in expressing your true self individually and within the couple system. Open and honest communication is an area of focus as we work to create the relationship you deserve. Over time I developed a passion for facilitating healing through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Motivational Interviewing (MI) techniques.
While working in the non-profit and private sectors, I have had the chance to work with families, couples, and individuals. I have worked with clients exploring their sexuality individually or while they are in a relationship. I have had the opportunity to work with individuals working through their relationships and expressing their sexual needs. Through my experience, I have found no two individuals are the same but therapy will give you an opportunity to express thoughts that allow you to obtain the most authentic relationship with yourself.
When I invest time in my relationship, my dog, my family, my friends, traveling, and myself I am the happiest. At the heart of Anil’s partnership with the couple, is his conviction that much more is possible than people ordinarily think. I believe that despite the various frustrations, issues, and barriers there are strengths and successes to build upon. I want to help you find the tools, skills, and strategies that are true to you and will allow you to live a full life.
