Announcement icon I remain open for telehealth services, and I primarily offer morning/daytime availability for my sessions.
First off, I know it requires a unique type of energy and vulnerability to reach out for support. Thank you for giving yourself permission to do so. Maybe you’re experiencing self-doubt that makes it difficult to wake up every morning. Maybe you’re having trouble shaking off intrusive thoughts that are staying rent-free inside your head. Maybe you have the impression that your concerns aren’t important enough to talk about. Maybe other people in your life just don’t “get it”. No matter what is happening, you deserve unconditional support in a safe and supportive environment.
The most crucial aspect of therapy is the connection between you and your counselor. My client-centered approach utilizes concepts from multiple modalities in order to create a joint alliance with you. In addition, my background as a second generation South Asian immigrant provides unique insight around issues like racial identity and assimilation.
I have been blessed with the opportunity to work with folks from various stages of life. If you feel like I can be a good fit, then let’s get started and walk this journey together. Feel free to email me if you would like to set up any sort of consultation. I look forward to hearing from you!
