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.

Life can feel overwhelming at times. But our challenges become more difficult if we aren't managing our thoughts and emotions skillfully. A key to personal growth is learning to detach from the unhelpful stories our mind tells us, so we can move forward on the things we value. My goal is to help you lead a richer, more meaningful life-one rooted in the values most important to you. No matter how serious your issues, there are steps you can take to gain a sense of control and wholeness.

Frustrated? Unhappy? Anxious? In emotional pain? Want some validation, insight, and change? I believe that everyone is the expert of their own experience; you have lived your life longer than I have known you. With encouragement, I often use the metaphor of being a flashlight in a dark cave, shedding light on different things, however, you, as the client are in the driver's seat; I am in the passenger seat, as a co-driver. Together, we will explore your personal meanings and experiences while making larger connections to your goals. I invite you to our journey together in creating new meaning.

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.

Therapy reduces suffering and creates possibility for healthy changes. It is one of the best investments that you can make as you gain awareness and learn about problematic patterns. Everyone is at their own change-readiness level and I will support you where you are at. I am familiar with most psychological issues or relationship concerns, as I have worked in numerous settings and generally I have said "Yes!" to everyone along the way.

Alongside the general anxiety & depression issues that bring many to therapy, I’m passionate about supporting those experiencing loss. Whether grappling with the end of a relationship, the passing of a loved one, or the upheaval of a job loss; loss affects us all deeply. Often accompanying these losses is a sense of identity dissolution, which can be disorienting yet holds potential for profound personal growth. My therapeutic approach to relational loss is rooted in a trauma-informed lens, informed by my extensive exploration of grief.
