Every person is so unique and beautifully complex, and that is what makes my work enjoyable and enriching. My aim in therapy is to first get to know who you are, including your strengths and vulnerabilities, and then we can work together to see how you might improve the quality and meaning in your life. I take a person-centered approach, creating a compassionate, safe and judgment-free environment, in which we can work together to explore your struggles, experiences and relationships and then strive towards improved outcomes. I draw from a number of modalities and customize my interventions to suit each individual client.
While my therapy background has centered mostly around children and teenagers, I also see young adults and families. Through my own personal experiences, I can also strongly relate with issues commonly faced by second-generation children of South Asian immigrants, victims of racial bullying and racial discrimination, and family conflicts tied to culture.
I also have experience with neurodivergence (ADD/ADHD and Autism) as well as Anxiety and Depression. I believe it is important to begin therapy for children with these issues, as early intervention tends to be more effective, but also because it is important to help children understand themselves better to prevent major impact on self esteem and identity.

I focus on the person first. A person is not defined by their mental health condition or neurodivergence. I want to get to know you and then we will look at both your strengths and vulnerabilities and how you can work with them to have a more positive experience of life.

I typically draw from various modalities in therapy and might utilize certain ones more than others depending on the client's needs and preferences. Person-centered is the primary modality I use for everyone though, as developing rapport and trust with the client is key to effective therapy, as well as empathetic and active listening by therapist.
