Engaging in therapy is a courageous, empowering choice. I believe the foundations of a healing, productive therapeutic relationship are trust, authenticity, and collaboration. I strive to create a safe, nonjudgemental space to explore thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to build insight into and change painful or unskillful patterns. I seek to help you illuminate stories you tell yourself about your emotional experiences and to shift narratives that aren’t serving you to build a joyful, connected, fulfilling life. My approach is eclectic and strengths-based, drawing from an array of modalities tailored to your unique needs and goals.

He also practices couple therapy and likes to offer premarital counseling, empowerment couple's counseling, and helping the healing process post infidelity or other ruptures in the relationship.

You aren’t quite where you thought you would be in life. Whether comparing yourself to others, experiencing a change in financial, mental or physical health, or pain and suffering in general, you are hesitant to make a change. Overall, you are feeling stressed, overwhelmed, or burnt out. Daily, it is hard to overcome the intrusive or negative thoughts and feelings. If experiencing a life transition, you feel alone or vulnerable to what are the right next steps. If in a relationship, maybe you find it challenging to talk about and it is starting to impact your relationship. You are exhausted, vulnerable, and ready for a change.

As James Baldwin famously said, "not everything that has been faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed unless faced", I also offer you the following poem: "When we feel safe, anything is possible. We become unstoppable. Because we have a firm ground to launch and a safe ground to land. We can then stand. Voice ourselves, show ourselves. Life becomes a dance."

My training would be defined as "Cognitive Behavioral Therapy" but I engage in general therapy. This means that I will work with my clients to meet them where they are and use tools, interventions and approaches that respect their person and strives to align with who they are. I am here for the client and make it a point to engage on a humanistic level. I am not a therapist who sits in a chair and asks "how does that make you feel?" I am a therapist who wants to actively help you identify your goal(s) and come up with a plan for you to reach them. I will not waste your time and I am invested as much as you are.

I have a strong interest in working with individuals who have faced trauma, especially sexual trauma, to help them rediscover their voice and feel heard. As well as, couples who are struggling with connection, infidelity and more. I acknowledge that every individual is unique and has their own story. As someone who identifies as South Asian, I understand being at the crossroads of societal pressures while trying to balance multiple expectations with various cultural considerations and the stigma that may come around mental health.

Many of us feel disconnected from ourselves and experience symptoms that constrict our lives and relationships. My goal as a therapist is to provide a safe environment where people can comfortably explore their longstanding, repetitive patterns, work through past trauma, integrate previously disowned parts of self, and discover their inner strengths. Using a holistic and integrative approach grounded in psychodynamic theory, I am committed to helping my clients gain insight and self-awareness and feel empowered to alter their present experiences by making intentional decisions that align with their values.

Many of us lead busy lives with little space to breathe, think, and make choices with clarity. We hold ourselves to unsustainable standards in our careers, relationships and as individuals. We move from day to day with anxious thoughts, or float numbly with disconnection and over-scheduling as a way to avoid pain. Often our expectations, goals and circumstances come at the expense of our own healthy well being.

Are you looking for a positive change and feel like your current path is no longer serving you? Are you numbing your emotions by engaging in uhealthy relationships with people, substances, food, shopping, gambling, screen time, etc? Then, I am grateful that our paths have crossed. Together, we can work towards attainment of greater balance and fulfillment through the healing of your whole self. You will find my approach to be facilitative rather than coercive and see that I aim to reinforce positive change in your life, no matter how small or incremental that change may be.

If you’ve landed here, you are no doubt considering making some changes in your life and I'm glad to see that you are exploring your options for feeling better. People I work with typically feel worried, sad, overwhelmed or stressed, or are trying to cope with grief--before, during, or after--an important loss. Feeling stuck in old ways of thinking and behaving, having problematic relationships, or feeling uncomfortable with the status quo and wanting to improve one's quality of life are common themes that bring people to my office.
