    Hi! I'm GXRL Resident Therapist

    Pallavi

    I’m a therapist. But I’m not your therapist. How valuable does that make me to you? Send me your questions and let’s see….

    "Ask Pallavi" is an advice column….I guess? What is advice really? Do you actually want someone to tell you what you should do? Is that truly going to be helpful? Usually asking for advice is a wish for someone else to take away feelings you don’t want to be dealing with right now. Full disclosure – no one will ever be able to do that for you. But you’ll send questions and I’ll respond. I will be honest about what I think about your situation, and I’ll dig deep, bringing my background as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. I might even tell you to get your own therapist, but not before I tell you why (And yes, it is always your parents’ fault).

    Living the Pandemic Lush Life

    ...we can’t figure out why the conflict until we know what exactly you are getting out of drinking and what you’re not loving about it so much.

    Wondering Where To Go

    I've lived in NYC for over 10 years, and I love it. However, even before the pandemic hit (and especially since it did) I've been thinking about relocating. My only problem is I'm not tied to anywhere.

    Weighing Security Vs. Dreams

    I work a job that I don't like for the money. It is seriously killing my soul. I really want to quit my job and focus on building my dream business, which I have been building in my head for months now, but my current job gives my husband and I health insurance and ensures we don't struggle financially. I have a side hustle that brings in some money, but it's not steady. Agggh, I don't know what to do! Should I tough it out and stay at my job that I hate for security? Or, just go for it and focus all my energy on building my dream business?
