I use evidence based tools that support healing from trauma (EMDR), creating healthier relationships (Emotion Focused Therapy, Attachment-based ), and reducing stress and anxiety (Mindfulness, CBT, ACT).
Maybe you're feeling weighed down by memories that you've been wanting to shake. You want to connect with a partner, but the same negative patterns keep playing out in your romantic life. A good night's sleep is rare, the tightness and stress in your shoulders is constant, but you have trouble pinning down what it's all from. You want change, even if you don't know exactly where to start. I'll walk with you as we collaborate to find the best way to work through your current challenges, and I'm confident that through our time, you'll begin to feel better.

I practice from an integrative, bottom-up approach primarily rooted in trauma-informed/ attachment-based , somatic, sensorimotor, humanistic, and ego state foundations to help best heal relational wounds and work toward safety within the self.
As your therapist, one of my priorities is to walk alongside you as you grow into the best version of yourself, embracing your individuality and strengths. It can be difficult to balance internal safety and values with the external commotion in the world. A sense of disillusionment occurs when our external wants do not meet our internal needs. I focus on your concept of self-worth as it relates to emotional disturbance, fragmentation of the self, maladaptive thinking patterns, and dissociation. Working collaboratively to assist you in reaching your best emotional, mental, and spiritual alignment is the focus of my practice.

Most recently, the bulk of my work is trauma-informed, relying heavily on attachment-based models of therapy, as well as sensorimotor, mindfulness, and neurologically informed interventions.
I consider myself to be a trauma-informed therapist. I believe that each experience in one's life leaves an imprint on the mind & body; thus, informing how one responds to the world. There is a rhyme & reason to these responses, and none of it is about being "wrong," "damaged," or "not good enough" (words I often hear from my patients). The goal of therapy with me is to help you learn to compassionately connect with, soothe and heal these hurting parts, so that you may be able to let go, engage, and thrive in your personal and professional life. I believe healing is possible for anyone willing to work at it.

Therapy is about allowing ourselves space to process and to heal. I specialize in working with individuals who struggle with past and present trauma, anxiety, mood disorders, and relationship issues. I offer a warm, nonjudgemental space to process your emotions and experiences and gain awareness into patterns and blind spots that you would like to change. Through this awareness, you can then start to foster meaningful change to create the life you want to live. Living a fulfilling life is rooted in intentionality, and intentionality starts with awareness.

I use an approach that is grounded in psychodynamic theory with an emphasis on attachment-based interventions.
I approach my clinical work with a grounding in my deeply-held belief that all human beings have infinite worth. My goal for all individuals with whom I work is to support each person's path towards experiencing that worth within themselves. Having worked in the mental health field for the past 16 years with children, adolescents, adults, and families, I have utilized this philosophy to guide the process of therapy with individuals having a wide range of challenges, from autism spectrum disorders to struggles with mood and anxiety to relationship problems.

My approach to practice is loss and trauma-informed, from an attachment-based , emotionally-focused therapy perspective, always considering the complexity of multicultural aspects that shape our lives.
I am passionate in working with relational issues, either when helping individuals or couples and families. I believe that our relationships have an essential impact on our well-being. I am yet to hear a client or a friend or a family member talk about distress that is not somehow associated to a relational issue... Aren't we all longing to belong and to find safety and security in the arms of our loved ones (partners, parents or very dear friends that are like family)? And yet, these are precisely the people that can hurt us the most.

I also often incorporate interpersonal and attachment-based theories and methods.
My areas of interest include working with adolescents, young adults, and families/couples. In addition, as a South Asian immigrant, I am passionate about working with the BIPOC and immigrant communities to help normalize therapy. I know that these populations often experience struggles specifically relating to their identity and culture and thus I am always working through a culturally competent lens and learning how intersectionality affects one’s mental health. Overall, I help guide those I work with through life challenges, the difficulties of interpersonal relationships, the complex reactions of trauma, and anxiety/stress.

I am well-versed in helping people reclaim agency over their mental space with cognitive-behavioral techniques, access the wisdom of their bodies through somatic practices, and re-write their story towards life affirmation with narrative and attachment-based therapies.
It is incredibly natural to feel overwhelmed in our present world. As mounting global stressors such as the COVID-19 pandemic and impending climate disaster compound the everyday stressors inherent to work, school, and relationships, it can feel like your emotional well-being is as difficult as it is important to maintain. It is my privilege to support people who want to do the brave work of releasing patterns of stuckness and embracing new, life-affirming narratives. I believe every human has the potential to heal towards deeper alignment with purpose, and am here for those seeking accompaniment in their transformation.
