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.

Do you find it hard to move on or cope with life due to relationship, career stress, grief, trauma, unresolved family dynamics or parenting challenges? Sometimes "feeling stuck" could be due to a recent or prior trauma. Are you a couple or family who is out of sync and have trouble communicating with each other? Are you a First/Second generation struggling with with family /culture based expectations? My style is warm, engaged & curious, and my role is to increase awareness and help you come up with effective coping strategies. “The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are.” ― Carl Gustav Jung.

I look at the whole child, to understand developmentally, socially, educationally, socially and within the family system to better understand the etiology of your child's struggles to provide appropriate therapy.
With over 20 years of almost exclusively working with SF Bay Area teens and their families (and a mother of two teenagers),-I have a solid understanding of the issues adolescents face, the struggles they encounter, and the mental health problems that are so very prevalent for them today. Depression and anxiety are at all all time high for teens and understanding the why isn't always so clear. My clients are facing a myriad of concerns - school refusal, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, substance use, social struggles, disordered eating, behavioral issues, just to name a few. One in thing is common is that they are all hurting,

My goal as a therapist is to help my clients thrive and flourish by equipping them with the tools and guidance they need to navigate daily stressors, grow their self care, and improve coping skills.

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.

I provide individual, couple, and family psychotherapy at my office in Hayes Valley.
Meaningful relationships are an essential part of fulfillment and happiness. I believe in the unique power of the relationship that develops between therapist and client. Through an exploration of this interaction, we can more wholly understand your past and current relationships and help shape future experiences. I work with people who are struggling in a variety of ways and are ready to dig in and do some difficult and deeply powerful work that will lead to greater choice and freedom. I view my opportunity to join individuals in their journey toward self-understanding as a great privilege and find the work exciting and gratifying.

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.

I practice using an integrative approach to therapy, drawing upon art therapy modalities, Internal Family Systems, humanistic, transpersonal/mindfulness practices, and a social-justice orientation of multiculturalism and diversity to inform and provide an empathetic foundation from which the process of growth can flourish.
I know how important relationships are, and how little we are taught about how to do them! I work with women who are feeling disconnected from themselves. Women who are struggling with body image issues, eating disorders, trauma, boundaries and relationship issues. I'm here to help facilitate a relationship between you and all parts of you. I believe there is creativity, reflection and expression inside of everyone and it can be easier to communicate without words. I bring warmth and energy to the room, my laugh is infectious. I bring levity to situations that can sometimes feel overwhelming and heavy.
