I see people as having rich, complex human emotions that are not well described with overly simple and often stigmatizing diagnostic labels like depression or generalized anxiety. Each person is entirely unique, with their own history, strengths, and challenges. In therapy, I will work with you to better understand yourself. When we can understand why you might be feeling or thinking or acting in a way that is not best for you, we can work together to change it in a way that is tailored to your needs and your circumstances.

I practice Mindfulness and Somatic based Cognitive Therapy to help treat Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, Relationship, and life's woes. Together we will understand what causes your suffering and create change. Our traumas, difficult relationships, COVID, loss, and heartache, can all be confusing and debilitating and influence us to live patterns of suffering through our behaviors, beliefs, habitual thinking and life circumstances. By discovering and practicing new behaviors you will learn how to relate to your thoughts, emotions, and body in a manner that allows you to live the life that you want to be living.

You may feel alone and as though no one seems to really get what you are going through. It may be some immediate situation or transition in life that feels extra hard to navigate, or some long-standing grief or pattern in relationships that seems to have a hold on you. You may have symptoms such as anxiety or depression, perhaps with less than optimal means of coping. Psychotherapy can help you understand and change.

Safety is the essence of therapy. My interactive approach focuses on the unique requirements each person needs to feel safe to recover their authentic sense of self which had to be set aside in order to not feel alone. It offers relief from unreasonable beliefs about hurting others. This also allows me to calibrate when treatment is progressing and how to keep it on track. Those who feel stuck in unsatisfying relationships or careers, have difficult family relationships, procrastinate, are indecisive, doubt their talents, think they are an imposter and who protect others at their own expense will find this therapy helpful.

You may long to live wholeheartedly - and to feel loved and connected - but struggle with anger, depression, loneliness, or inexplicable sadness and anxiety. You may find the stress of work, life, running a household, or parenting has diminished your capacity to feel joy and be creative. Once a source of comfort and pleasure, your intimate relationship may now be disappointing, frustrating, or even deadening. Therapy can help relieve the symptoms of debilitating feelings by uncovering the underlying (and sometimes unconscious) causes, and empower individuals - and couples - to become the authors of the lives they want to live.

Therapy should not and cannot be "one size fits all." It should be rooted in a consistent, deep effort to understand who you are and what you need, in relation to the resources you have near you. Therapy should also be practical and offer some fairly immediate results, even though bigger change takes time. It's ultimately about collaboration, and the formation of a helpful relationship. Although I have 25 years of clinical experience to bring to our work, it is more important that you feel we have a good match as we enter this work together. I trust that after we talk, you'll know whether it seems like the right match.

My work is grounded in a relational and body-oriented approach to therapy. I draw on the immense resources of the body-- its rich wisdom to support the cultivation of mindful presence, internal resource, gentle self inquiry/guidance and embodiment. Creating space for you to listen to your voice and inner experience allows for both depth and breath of understanding, as well as authentic expression and acceptance.

Hello, I am an immigrant from India, having studied and worked in both countries. I have worked with adolescents in schools, and with adults in outpatient units. My current practice is primarily with adults (individual, couples therapy). My best work has been with clients coping with depression, anxiety and working through the impact of past trauma. It has been humbling and enriching to be allowed into the inner worlds of my clients and I remain in awe of the resilience of the human spirit. Research shows a genuine therapeutic bond is important and I work hard to create a safe space for clients where they feel valued and respected.

Finding a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist. Many sex addicts and their partners say they have been to therapy, but it has not been helpful….until they have begun therapy with a CSAT(Certified Sex Addiction Therapist) trained therapist. Founded by Dr. Patrick Carnes, the CSAT® program was developed after years of extensive experience and research in the field of addiction therapy now an industry standard in addiction. The dynamics of behavioral, or process, addictions are complex; so much so that mental health professionals must take an entirely different approach to even begin the process of understanding addiction and recovery.

Emotions can sometimes be difficult to bear-sadness, worries about yourself and others, fears, painful recurrent interactions and relationships. Working with an understanding professional to explore feelings and expectations about yourself and your relationships can be the key to clarifying troubling emotional states. These feelings can cause recurrent painful states, or push us toward repetitive or self-destructive behaviors. Exploring these feelings in a safe relationship can cause feelings about yourself and others to shift, opening to new ways of thinking and behaving. This allows for greater flexibility, enhanced creativity, a better relationship with yourself, and better connections and relationships.

Identifying these patterns and developing strategies to overcome them can empower you to get unstuck and move toward your goals. I support couples to gain the insight and skills to overcome conflict, improve communication and find connection. I help individuals grow in awareness, heal from the past and conquer the barriers keeping them from the life they want.
