I see people as having rich, complex human emotions that are not well described with overly simple and often stigmatizing diagnostic labels like depression or generalized anxiety. Each person is entirely unique, with their own history, strengths, and challenges. In therapy, I will work with you to better understand yourself. When we can understand why you might be feeling or thinking or acting in a way that is not best for you, we can work together to change it in a way that is tailored to your needs and your circumstances.

What matters to you? Being curious makes a significant difference when you are thinking of making changes because now you are interested in yourself - in what you think and feel and want- and want to become. Are relationships your core concern? - wondering what is working and what is not, what is missing, and what is disappointing?Losses or fear of loss makes us anxious, ashamed, often traumatized by our own feelings. I am committed to working with your personal needs in a trusting, creative, dynamic, caring process and will help you achieve what you desire. Real changes take real time.

We all get stuck at some point in our lives. Sometimes we compensate by reverting to older, familiar patterns of coping, that may have been effective in the past, but don't quite address the complexity of the problems you face today.

Emotions can sometimes be difficult to bear-sadness, worries about yourself and others, fears, painful recurrent interactions and relationships. Working with an understanding professional to explore feelings and expectations about yourself and your relationships can be the key to clarifying troubling emotional states. These feelings can cause recurrent painful states, or push us toward repetitive or self-destructive behaviors. Exploring these feelings in a safe relationship can cause feelings about yourself and others to shift, opening to new ways of thinking and behaving. This allows for greater flexibility, enhanced creativity, a better relationship with yourself, and better connections and relationships.

Hello, I am an immigrant from India, having studied and worked in both countries. I have worked with adolescents in schools, and with adults in outpatient units. My current practice is primarily with adults (individual, couples therapy). My best work has been with clients coping with depression, anxiety and working through the impact of past trauma. It has been humbling and enriching to be allowed into the inner worlds of my clients and I remain in awe of the resilience of the human spirit. Research shows a genuine therapeutic bond is important and I work hard to create a safe space for clients where they feel valued and respected.

You may long to live wholeheartedly - and to feel loved and connected - but struggle with anger, depression, loneliness, or inexplicable sadness and anxiety. You may find the stress of work, life, running a household, or parenting has diminished your capacity to feel joy and be creative. Once a source of comfort and pleasure, your intimate relationship may now be disappointing, frustrating, or even deadening. Therapy can help relieve the symptoms of debilitating feelings by uncovering the underlying (and sometimes unconscious) causes, and empower individuals - and couples - to become the authors of the lives they want to live.

It can be healing to share your story with someone who truly listens, empathizes, and validates. Someone who can relate objectively and non-judgmentally. Someone who can hold space for and tolerate all emotions, even those that seem intense, overwhelming, and scary. It can be life-changing simply to have a space and time once a week that is just for and about you. A space that is safe and welcomes all aspects of who you are, even those that you feel you can’t show to anyone else. A space that honors imperfection and encourages humanity. A space in which you aren’t alone.
