CREDENTIALS AND QUALIFICATIONS
Dr. Gokani graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Illinois with degrees in Economics & Biology. She later earned her medical degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago, where she also completed her training in Neurology, was Chief Resident, and pursued additional post-doctoral training and certification as a Master Clinical Psychopharmacologist through the Neuroscience Education Institute. Her early bout with insomnia in medical school led her down a path of studying eastern forms of healing, specifically Ayurveda, for twenty-five years. She initially pursued formal training in Functional Medicine through the Institute of Functional Medicine. At that time she joined forces with another integrative practitioner and started an integrative wellness center. During this time she managed a team of practitioners ranging from massage therapists and nutritionists to acupuncturists and physical therapists. Dr. Gokani became certified in IV Nutritional Therapy and offered this therapy as a bridge for those struggling to restore energy, vitality, and reduce pain. At this time started practicing Transcendental Meditation in hopes to share this wisdom with her patients. During this contemplative time, she felt a draw to further study the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda. Due to her early exposure and personal transformation with this science, she decided to become certified in Ayurveda. She thus completed certification as an Ayurvedic Wellness & Nutrition Counselor through Kerala Academy. She then later pursued additional advanced training in Ayurveda through the Maharishi Health Professional Ayurveda Practitioner Program in conjunction with Scripps Hospital. In addition to these certifications, she trained in Pranic Healing and Chakra analysis to further pursue the mind. Her passion for understanding the physical-mental-emotional-spiritual connection to health led her to delve deeper into NLP training.
As mentioned above, most recently, she has become a Master Practitioner of Neurolinguistic Programming and is becoming certified as an Integrative NLP Coach. Despite all of her work in complementary medicine, she has maintained her vigor for studying western neurology and completed board recertification for Neurology & Psychiatry. She is medically certified by the American Board of Neurology & Psychiatry and is licensed to practice in Illinois and California. Due to her passion for education and training, she had become one of the leading faculty trainers for leading pharmaceutical companies such as Teva Pharmaceuticals and has been a local or national speaker for Allergan, Abbvie, Biohaven, Lundbeck, Merck, Pfizer, Glaxo, and Astra-Zenica pharmaceuticals. She has been married for 24 years and has two children, Ariya and Arman, along with her dog Blue. She resides in the northern suburbs of Chicago.
