About

I seek to meet my clients where they are, sensitively feeling into what it might be like to be you, with respect, openness and warmth. I have a particular interest in guiding individuals through the intimate process of working through emotional pain and early relational trauma. I tend to focus on what is happening in the client/therapist relationship. How do you feel about the way we are working together? What does the connection between us feel like today? Examining relational patterns in this immediate way can help us discover what it means to engage non-defensively and authentically with ourselves and with life.
Psychodynamically trained, my approach is influenced by theories of attachment, intergenerational trauma, internal family systems, polyvagal theory and other somatic approaches to trauma healing. Of Indian descent but born in Aotearoa New Zealand, I am attentive to questions around cultural and ethnic identity, power & intersectionality.
“Change and loss travel together. We can’t have change without loss, which is why so often people say they want change but nonetheless stay exactly the same” - Lori Gottlieb. Therapy can be a challenging, but infinitely rewarding endeavour. Please feel free to contact me, or see my website, if you are interested in potentially working together.
