Dr. Priyal Ranasinghe


Postdoctoral Fellow

Mental Health Counselor Associate

Dr. Priyal Ranasinghe is a devoted and compassionate clinician with a strong focus on trauma, couples therapy, neurodivergent relationships, ADHD and Autism, and problematic sexual behavior or sex addiction. With a deep passion for understanding the complexities of human relationships and the impact of painful life events on individuals and couples, he has dedicated his career to helping clients heal and thrive in their intimate connections.

Dr. Ranasinghe helps individuals who are struggling with problematic and compulsive sexual behaviors to break the self-destructive cycle, create healthy intimacy, repair their relationship, and live within their values. He helps clients work through self-destructive feelings of shame while learning to be vulnerable and connect with others.


In his work with couples, Dr. Ranasinghe understands that relationships can both be a source of support in healing from trauma, and a realm deeply impacted by past experiences. His approach to therapy is rooted in empathy, cultural sensitivity, and respect for each person's unique journey. He recognizes the importance of creating a safe and inclusive space where clients can openly express their thoughts, emotions, and experiences. The person that we are has an impact on those around us, and those people often want to know how to best support us. Couples therapy is one of the best approaches to making sure we get the support we need while showing our commitment to the relationship.

Dr. Ranasinghe has worked with many couples who want to better understand and support one another through past trauma, extramarital affairs, sexual concerns, multicultural differences, and those looking for deeper connection and conflict resolution skills. In session he helps couples explore how past experiences shape one's worldview and how this can impact the current relationship. He supports couples to explore these issues because in strong relationships, it’s the couple versus an issue rather than one person versus another. Whatever brings a couple into therapy, they often leave with insight and skills that can serve them for the rest of their life. Dr. Ranasinghe firmly believes in the power of a collaborative therapeutic relationship and works closely with his clients to develop personalized treatment plans tailored to their specific needs and goals.

Dr. Ranasinghe has a passion for and expertise working with neurodivergent individuals, including those with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD/ADD) and Autism. We all experience the world differently and this is especially true for any marginalized identities we carry. Neurodivergence can present a unique set of difficulties that can make a person feel alone and unsupported. Dr. Ranasinghe's work with neurodivergent clients focuses on a client-centered and strengths-based approach to therapy. He recognizes that every individual's neurodivergent journey is unique, and tailors his therapeutic interventions to meet the specific needs, goals, and preferences of each client. Sometimes it’s about understanding the self better, advocacy for accommodations, or it can be about communicating needs to those important to us. Dr. Ranasinghe places a strong emphasis on fostering a safe and non-judgmental therapeutic environment where clients can explore their challenges and celebrate their diversity

In therapy, Dr. Ranasinghe utilizes evidence-based interventions and therapeutic modalities, drawing from a wide range of approaches such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), cognitive-processing (CPT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and psychodynamic psychotherapy. He has been trained with a broad range of specializations and remains committed to staying updated with the latest advancements in the field to ensure his clients receive the highest quality of care.
