As a queer, South Asian American therapist, I specialize in providing body-centered psychodynamic therapy to Queer, Trans, Non-Binary, people of color and immigrants of the diasporas. With a relational and somatic approach in treatment, I can help you manage depression, anxiety, overwhelm, worry, stress and dis-ease. My hope is to help you heal trauma, manage dissociation, build insight around how your mind works and compassionately transform unhelpful internalized messages. I specialize in working with adults and teens.
If you are looking for a therapist with a gentle, skilled, kind-hearted approach, then we may be a good fit. I can meet you with deep empathy as you tell your story and also challenge you when you need. My goal is to help you see the road not taken, integrate your somatic and mind experience as you process, and help you gain access to new paths forward.
I want you to feel better again. And thrive in all of your relationships again. To look for support in one's life is no easy task; especially if you're used to making it on our own. I personally want to extend a deep thank you for reading about how I may support you on your healing journey. Please reach out if you think I can help you.
