As a queer , non-binary, South-Asian American in mental health/substance use recovery, I know that healing is non-linear.
I walk alongside folks moving through life transitions, intersectional identity exploration, and trauma recovery. My warm, relational, anti-oppressive approach prioritizes intergenerational healing in historically silenced Black and Brown communities by centering healing justice/collective liberation. Community members come to me with tension in their bodies, feeling stuck, and unsure what to do next. I help children/teens, young adults, parents, and families put down their "protective armor" in order to lighten the emotional load. Together, we can co-create the anti-racist, identity-affirming care that you have been longing for.

I provide services to individuals, couples, and families, specializing in culturally competent therapy for Portland's LGBTQ community. I work with clients of various sexual, gender, and cultural backgrounds to address issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, identity concerns, and life transitions. I collaborate with clients & their other providers to determine the focus and nature of therapy. I believe all people are oriented towards health and growth, but sometimes develop problematic ways of thinking, acting, being, and interacting. In therapy we explore areas of your life to find ways of being that help you feel more contented, balanced, and effective.

My areas of professional interest involve working with individuals who have experienced trauma, family and relationship therapy, and LGBTQIA (plus) populations.
As a therapist, my approach is grounded in empathy, compassion, and person-centered counseling. I don’t believe that therapy is a “one size fits all,” and I utilize a variety of methods, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma-Focused CBT, and Attachment Theory to provide an approach that will fit your individual needs.

Are you a seeker who asks the existential questions in life. Do you identify with the LGBTQIA + community, the polyamorous/ENM community, or the BDSM/kink community? Guided by the principle of the Carl Rogers' quote, "The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change, I am here" to hold space in a safe environment and meet you where and how you are.

I am a member of the LGBTQ community.
My belief is that we enter life with an inherent idea of who we are and what we want to accomplish. As we strive for acceptance, we cover ourselves in layers of others' expectations, eventually losing our ‘selves’ in the process. My desire is to help you strip away these layers to discover who you are at your core. We do this together by using feedback, intuitive healing, trauma informed therapy, dream work and active imagination. We do this by sitting with and listening to your stories of pain and unmet needs. We exchange heavier emotional layers with lighter ones until you can then stand in your own original brilliance.

I am passionate about working with teens, young adults, adults, and members of the LGBTQIA + community to find their strength and sense of calm in the midst of chaos.
When we find ourselves in times of increased stress and uncertainty we often find our personal everyday struggles are magnified making it harder than ever to maintain a sense of hope and stability. Anxiety, depression, and grief may be more intense lately – that is where therapy comes in.

I help people living with depression, self-identity struggles, grief, trauma and have experience working within LGBTQIA + and ethical non-monogamous communities. The children I see have/are experiencing abuse, behavior concerns, and life stressors. My role as a therapist is to offer authentic and genuine reflections and to help strengthen your mental capacity and confidence to handle internal and external stressors. I believe we all have a story to tell, some intertwined with tragedy and challenges, and that our time together is for you to tell yours. I want to sit beside you, listen, and hopefully offer you clarity and healing.

I specialize in working transgender and non-binary youth and their families on matters related to gender identity.
My approach to therapy is primarily based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). A core idea in ACT is that trying too hard to get rid of or control our emotions tends to backfire. Instead of trying to get rid of unwanted thoughts and feelings, I will help you learn to react differently to them so that you can keep your focus on living a meaningful and fulfilling life based on what’s important to you. We will work together to set meaningful goals to address your concerns–whether they relate to life transitions, depression, anxiety, body image, grief/loss, job or academic stress, or gender and sexuality.

I provide individualized therapy focused on transformation. Together we will learn about how your body/mind/spirit work and then collaborate with your nervous system to advance changes you are seeking. My work is trauma-informed, anti-racist, queer affirming, fat/body positive, embraces the full spectrum of neurotypes, economic experiences, and abilities. My practice is grounded in wonder and awe, and is informed by the latest neurobiology that explains how stress can not only get stuck in our bodies but also how our bodies are made to heal (Polyvagal Theory and Interpersonal Neurobiology).

We have advanced clinical experience working with clients, predominantly within the LGBTQ community, facing life adjustments due to health and grief issues.
We are passionate about personal growth and self-actualization which can emerge through the therapeutic process. We believe everything that occurs in life is not by accident, but are in fact lessons to be used in grasping one's own meaning of life. Although we tend to favor experiential approaches, our theoretical orientation focuses on an integrative style of therapy. We begin with the client gradually building a foundation of acceptance and trust that is both affirming and non-judgmental. A successful therapeutic relationship is built upon making a connection through engagement allowing a client the freedom to just "be."
