My job is to begin where you are and help you prepare for your next stage of change. I use an integrative approach, working from the inside out (objects relations, family systems, cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, others) to support your process and movement. We all start with assumptions about life. Then life happens, and we have to begin again having been changed. Loss becomes growth as we embrace new and mature understanding of ourselves and life. I am a clinical psychologist with over 10 years experience working with complicated but interesting people who are addressing individual, relationship, life, and spiritual issues.

I believe that all clients have the resources within them to resolve the emotional and social challenges they are presented with in life. I work with individuals and couples, as well as children and adolescents on a range of problems. Couples counseling, separation and divorce, blended and extended family issues, parenting, behavioral problems in children and teenagers, multi-cultural issues, depression, and domestic violence are areas of particular interest for me. I grew up in India and have been in the US since 1981. I am intimately familiar with the two cultures.

I'm a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist , Certified Sex Addiction Therapist, trained in EMDR specializing in sex addictions, couples therapy and trauma.
Do you find yourself making excuses for your secret, compulsive sexual behaviors, thinking that you can stop at any time? You may think that watching porn is not a big deal, because "Everybody does it." The truth is you have been saying, "This is the last time" for years now, and if you are in a committed relationship, then your partner is feeling angry, betrayed and confused. Problematic sexual behaviors can leave you feeling shame and guilt fraught with fear and anxiety. For 15 years, by creating a safe and confidential environment, using specific tools, I have helped distressed people move past their damaging choices and heal.

I am particularly effective in working with bright and highly sensitive teens. During this pandemic, I believe that our most perceptive, sensitive adolescents are having the biggest mental health challenges with not seeing friends, family , and teachers on a more regular basis. I have extensive experience as a School Counselor in both private and public schools in the SF Bay Area. I also have designed and taught Social and Emotional Learning at several private schools. My ideal client is a teen facing the obstacles of anxiety, depression, learning challenges or social skills challenges at school or home.

I bring to my work years of meditation and utilize Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, blending CBT, Psychodynamic, Humanistic and Family Systems theories, with mindfulness.
Imagine confusion and emotional pain transforming into wisdom and clarity. As a seasoned therapist I offer compassionate support in a safe, comfortable environment. Incorporating body, mind and spirit in a practical approach to growth and change, I have successfully helped many individuals and couples find relief from anxiety and depression and improve their relationships. As we learn to see things more clearly, anger can be transformed into compassion, and fear can dissolve into acceptance, allowing us to be fully present and alive to celebrate our lives with joy and happiness.

I offer psychotherapy through a person centered approach and will support you or your family to get through core issues.
As a therapist, I look for the basic goodness of human beings and try to bring clients having locus of control in their lives and share perspectives leading clients to feel liberated so they find the meaning of life; fulfillment and happiness. This takes practice, as our minds naturally scan for the negative, but if we try, we can almost always find something good about you and others which will lead us to heal and peace and may bring harmony and joy to our life. Personally, I enjoy reading books regarding history and philosophy. I have a strong passion for helping children and adults, including parenting issues.

My focus is to provide individual, couples, and family therapy for court-involved cases, reunification therapy, and co-parenting counseling.
Have you ever felt like someone could help you lift up your life? Therapy is a shared process with you and me together to discuss your uncomfortable issues. I offer warmth and compassion to enhance your ability to make your own choices and take actions that are effective toward your goals. My approach is evidence-based and client-centered, and it is influenced by mindfulness, multicultural perspectives, and family systems. I carefully draw from the insights and techniques from psychological theories that I believe can effect change.

Past leadership positions at Bay Area mental health programs have informed my work as a therapist. I have seen for some that balancing a career or education with everyday life can be overwhelming and isolating if one works endlessly while sacrificing self-care. You may find it challenging to set boundaries. You may feel like you are "being othered" by those who do not understand you. You may find it difficult to open your heart to family or friends when education, career, and relationships hold specific meanings for you. My passion as a therapist is to help people thrive in the ever-changing cultures of home, work, or academic life.

Those I work with are typically trying to manage a time in their life that seems challenging, confusing, and sometimes hopeless. This may manifest as conflict with friends or family , academic decline, a sense of feeling out of control, depressed mood, or anxious distress. My recipe to cultivating a valuable therapeutic experience is part insight through exploration of your family of origin, beliefs, values, culture, and part practical skill use to improve your ability to manage your day-to-day stressors.

OOO 6/30-8/1. Do you feel like you keep making the same mistakes in your dating relationships? Do you find that when you finally get the committed relationship you thought you wanted, you feel insecure in ways you didn't expect? Everything we feel and react to is sparked by our interpersonal interactions. When those interactions cause self-defeating reactions, you can feel insecure, lonely, and defeated. I want to help you change your patterns. I help people calm the chaos in their mind and their life. You will learn that you can manage your life (relationships, family , career) with strength and confidence.
