I specialize in providing counseling services to children aged 3-12 & their families. Childhood is an extraordinary time of growth and change, and often it can be hard to know when extra support may be needed. Many times, the first step is in supporting parents in understanding the current challenge. I strive to witness each child/family uniquely while building a safe therapeutic relationship. My approach to therapy is warm, creative, and playful. I view caregivers as an important part of the treatment process and carve out space to meet with them routinely.

Over the past six years, it has been such a pleasure walking with my clients through their journeys of healing and change. I have had the privilege of sitting with parents struggling through the heartache of divorce, immigrants and children of immigrants who are making a home against all odds, college students fighting dominant culture norms, survivors of marital abuse, and those fighting to escape their childhood trauma. Before becoming a therapist, I worked in education and non-profits in India, and I am astounded, then and now, by the human capacity for resilience and strength in the face of hardship.

The decision to pursue therapy is a difficult one and I congratulate you on beginning your search to find the therapist that is right for you. My approach to therapy is based on the belief that each person has an innate ability to achieve healing and personal growth. I believe each existence is unique, and because of our experiences, the impact of society, and the ways in which our environments contribute to shaping who we are, we all walk through the world differently. By creating a safe space where you can be yourself, I will meet you where you are.

We all find ourselves in places in our lives where we ask how we arrived to where we are. It can be confusing, disorienting, and overwhelming. Sometimes being able to shift focus and try a new approach can be helpful. My hope is to have the privilege to walk along side you as you consider change, embrace exploration, and solidify your internal foundation. Adolescents and children face difficulties that can become behavioral challenges for parents and the family system. Changes from loss, family additions, and divorce can also be unsettling. Knowing how to navigate through those challenges sometimes requires outside support.

My desire is to create a safe place for adolescents and young adults to express themselves and work through the challenges of life. Growing up brings many natural transitions that can be challenging at times. With additional life stressors, life can feel overwhelming. Problems at school, low self-esteem, family conflict, past traumas, loss/grief, and other issues can create strong feelings that get in the way of normal functioning. I believe every person has a story of resilience and my role is to help integrate past experiences, cope with present hardships and create hope for the future.

Parents sometimes face very important questions about their children, including: Does my child have ADHD or a learning disability? Why is my daughter having so many social difficulties? Is my son's defiance a normal part of his development? Is my teenager depressed? Are my child's worries normal for someone her age? Does my preschooler have a developmental delay? Is my child gifted? Is my daughter suffering post-concussion syndrome after her sports-related injury? Psychological and neuropsychological evaluations are used to answer these and other questions about a child’s development and needs.

Seeking therapy can be a daunting process, while also being one step toward greater wholeness/healing. Relationship is where we are both wounded and healed. I work with individuals seeking relief from distressing symptoms such as; demanding too much of yourself, finding it hard to trust self, your experience, your mind, self-soothing through addictive behaviors, pleasing others at your own expense, anxiety, depression, PTSD. Our patterns of relating develop early within our first attachments, so our journey might include visiting some of those relationships to wonder how they impact you in the here and now.
