My daughter has made significant progress with her anxiety thanks to Dr. Punwani's help. She takes a holistic approach and adds the perfect balance of intellect, heart and intuition. She never ceases to amaze me with her ability to laser in on the exact issues and thoroughly and accurately address them. I have found her to be genuine, warm and compassionate, yet firm and direct, which sets the tone that my daughter needs in her healing and development. She is a true healer and professional.

Dr. Punwani has been amazing for our child who suffers from anxiety/OCD. He has made great progress and she is always searching for ways to help him more. I know she loves him and cares about him. I trust her judgement and know that she has my son's best interests at heart. She is very knowledgeable and experienced and I highly recommend her.
