I work with men, women, and couples over 18 years of age. No matter what your reason is for seeking therapy, you deserve someone to witness your truth without reaction. You might be unsure whether you’re justified being in therapy or tell yourself that things aren’t really that bad and that you’re okay. But allowing someone to just be there with you creates the space to look at your expectations, thoughts, and feelings, and see what you want to do with them. It's valuable for someone to be part of your journey to help you explore what your narrative is and how it is affected by patterns and dynamics that affect all of us.
My approach to therapy is to get to know you, the client, first in order to hear your narrative and help identify themes that pop up and contribute to how you think, feel, behave, and interact today. I use an eclectic approach, which means I draw from multiple modalities to tailor the treatment to you and what you specifically need.
As a first generation South Asian female, I’ve had to identify my own boundaries, learning to differentiate myself culturally and gender-wise. Through my personal and professional experiences, I’ve learned that it can be hard to get unstuck or feel connected when our own experiences get shut down—though our work, we'll figure out how to move forward.
