*I am not currently accepting new clients* I see my job as hosting a space for you to show up exactly as you are. This can be difficult, especially when it seems life is happening too fast to process or you feel stuck. I don't assume coming to therapy means there is something wrong with you--there is just something powerful about having a regular time set aside to check in with yourself. As a therapist, I can provide structure and support for that practice, whether you are processing trauma, moving through a crisis, want to make big changes, or just want space to be.

Do you feel like change is long overdue, but you’re unsure where to start? Maybe, you are exhausted from having to be strong all the time. Perhaps, you want to slow down, but fears of painful memories overwhelm you? More importantly, you want to love and accept yourself, but your internal voice is relentlessly mean and you want to shut it up...If this is connecting with you in any way, you are in the right place. I’m Padma - a bicultural therapist with extensive experience working with individuals experiencing distress within themselves, with others, and with oppressive systems.

Many people struggle with feeling like they don't have a sense of purpose; or that they're disconnected from themselves and the people around them. Some people have to bear the weight of dealing with the stress that comes along with living in a society that treats LGBTQ+ folks and POC differently. Through therapy, you can have your concerns validated yet be challenged to grow and thrive in a world that wants to turn its back on anyone who dares to challenge the status quo. It is my goal to collaborate with clients on increasing self-expression, personal growth, and self-advocacy.

My "best" successes came from people who finally gave up on what wasn't working for them anymore and came in with an open mind. This worked with issues of anxiety and depression, habits that people didn't want to continue doing, relationships that felt broken, and coping mechanisms that used to work but then began to create more problems. I thoroughly enjoy working with people who are ready to get their lives back on track.

The reality is our painful experiences and memories can shape our beliefs and worldviews, creating mistrust, shame, anger, and isolation.
