About

Seeking out therapy can be a difficult choice to make. It may also mean that you are ready to make some changes in your life. Perhaps you are feeling overwhelmed or stuck due to a stressful life event. Maybe you want to further explore some of your underlying issues or traumas. I have experience working with adolescents and adults struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, immigration, and acculturation stress. Together, we can explore how your current choices may be connected with your past experiences or how your thoughts, feelings and behaviors are interlinked.
My goal is to provide a safe space to assist you in identifying current and past challenges and learn new ways to manage them. I believe by learning to love and accept yourself, you can face life’s challenges with more clarity. I believe that no level of intervention can be fully effective without a strong therapeutic connection.
I encourage you to reach out for a free phone consultation. Let's work together to identify your goals and needs. I provide online video and phone sessions in addition to in-office sessions. I provide therapy in English and Tamil.
