About

You aren’t feeling like yourself, or perhaps you’re trying to figure out who ‘yourself’ is. You’ve become distant from your friends and family, can’t seem to focus on work or school, and are constantly worrying about the future. All of this has left you feeling overwhelmed and consumed by your thoughts, and in need of extra support. As your therapist, I’ll help you identify and shift emotions, thoughts, and patterns that are keeping you stuck. My goal is to broaden self-awareness, give you the tools to deal with future challenges, and guide you in achieving wellness and a positive sense of self.
I have a special interest in working with the South Asian community, as well as with teens (14+), emerging adults, and adults who are struggling with life transitions, academic or occupational stress, wanting to gain insight into their patterns of behavior, and unveil and work through trapped emotions.
Therapy is a unique opportunity to reconnect with yourself and others, and I hope to build a meaningful connection with you from which you grow. Within my practice, I value and incorporate collaboration, warmth, humor, and willingness to step out of one's comfort zone. If you think I may be a good fit, please reach out for a free phone or video consultation.
