In addition, he has also delivered integrated and holistic clinical services to war and torture victims, refugees, and the immigrant population. In addition to his professional experiences, Keyur has worked with diverse populations providing therapy, training, and evaluations in a variety of settings that includes: community mental health, county social service offices, primary care clinics, and private practice. He is an adjunct assistant professor at the University of Minnesota and Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota teaching classes such as Psychological Assessment and Psychopathology.

Keyur has always appreciated the ways different cultures come together and create a community, and has spent his career seeking out apprenticeships which can prepare him to work with different cultures and add new perspectives to his skill sets. He has specifically looked for professional and community education opportunities that would expose him to new populations and help him develop his professional multicultural identity, and he wants to continue on that path in the future. He is a personable, motivated, creative, and enthusiastic clinician whose main aim is to help clients live their maximum potential.
