She believes in giving special attention to a patient-centered approach that seeks to consider the specific needs and wants of each patient.

Pramoda also believes that one’s state of mental health is a reflection of one’s nutritional status and degree of physical fitness, and that a focus on healthy diet, and a physical movement practice can amplify the effectiveness of psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy dramatically. She is passionate in her personal pursuit of physical fitness, health, and wellness, with active practices in functional movements, dance workouts and running.
