Integrated SEL
Coach, Trainer & Consultant
Bay Area, CA

Dr. Soundhari Balaguru is a clinical psychologist and Founder of Integrated SEL, a coaching, training, and consulting business that supports school leaders in centering Social-Emotional Learning, Restorative Discipline, and Culturally Affirming practices in their school climate and culture.  After working in schools for 18 years ‘Dr. Soundhari’ brings both a child-centered and systems perspective to her work with educators.  ‘Dr. Soundhari’ believes that for students to meet their full potential, schools need to prioritize relationships, validate and affirm their students’ identities, and support students and adults to grow and learn from their mistakes.  In these challenging times, schools can promote what is therapeutic, even if it’s not therapy, and support educator wellness alongside the wellness of students.
