Vanita has been a practicing psychiatrist in the community since 2005 after graduating from her residency at Stanford.  She received her bachelors degree from Brown University and her medical and public health degrees from Tulane University.  Throughout her education, Vanita has been passionate about and dedicated to womens’ health issues, always embarking upon research projects and initiatives involving women’s health. She worked extensively in the women’s wellness clinic at Stanford and also started a women’s psychiatry group upon completing her training. Recently Vanita opened up a practice in Los Altos titled Women and Wellness, a practice dedicated to supporting and empowering women to become their best selves and to find freedom.  She holds the South Asian community of women and the fight against domestic violence close to her heart.
