Srijana Chhetri, LCSW
Clinical Coordinator, Therapist
Srijana, who goes by Sriju, was born and raised in Kathmandu, Nepal. She first came to the Shenandoah Valley in 2005 to attend Eastern Mennonite University. While attending EMU, she had the unique opportunity to spend a semester in the Middle East, where her fascination for human behavior and psychology further developed. In 2009, Sriju graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Social Work. Her love for adventure and music then took her to Austin, Texas, where she pursued a Master’s degree in Clinical Social Work at the University of Texas while doing her best to “keep Austin weird.” In graduate school, her interest in the mind-body connection and alternative therapies led her to research Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction and facilitate a mindfulness-based therapeutic group at a local community counseling center. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, she serves the Collins Center by honing her clinical skills and passion in progressive evidence-based practices to promote healing and recovery. In her free time, Sriju enjoys spending time with family and friends, gardening, listening to records and cooking, and going to as many musical events as possible.
