My name is Nalini Calamur and I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist that works under licensed supervision with Dr. Thomas Michahelles, LMFT. I graduated from John F. Kennedy University in 2016 and have been working with individuals, couples, and families struggling with substance use, eating disorders, complex trauma, suicide, unresolved conflict, anxiety, and depression for over 6 years.
I started my work at Bay Area Addiction Research and Treatment in 2014 where I worked with people struggling with addiction from a harm reduction model. I worked at the Community Institute for Psychotherapy for 5 years as an intern therapist, learning and practicing Relational Psychodynamic Therapy, Emotion Focussed Couples Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Brief Counseling at a Detox Center. I also worked for 3 years at the Carl.

I have advanced training in several modalities, including Emotion Focussed Couples Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, Multi-Dimensional Family Therapy, and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy. I currently work at Lincoln in their Multi-Dimensional Family Therapy Program in Alameda County with system involve youth and and families struggling with trauma, relational ruptures, and substance use.
