About

I have over 10 years experience working with individuals and couples. My area of expertise includes working with ethnic and multicultural population and addressing issues related to couples in inter-racial marriages, struggles with cultural assimilation and family relationship dynamics. I speak 5 languages and I am keenly aware of the specific issues faced by Indian-Americans in particular and Asian Americans and Latinos in general, especially with regards to struggles with personal and cultural identity. I offer brief and long term models of therapy. I also provide tele-therapy (online) in addition to face-to-face counseling.
My areas of interest also includes helping women with anxiety, depression and stress that arises from various life transitions (relationships, marriage, divorce, birth of a child). My clients value the insights, compassion and genuine respect I have for their struggles and my gentle and approachable style. I serve clients in both Oregon and California.
I draw from various psychotherapy techniques and firmly believe that every one is capable of positive changes in life. My counseling practice stems primarily from a strength-based approach and I am passionate about helping clients achieve their life goals, while validating, supporting and challenging them in a compassionate manner.
