About me

Welcome all. Thank you for thinking about your mental health today. You may be interested in beginning therapy for a number of reasons. Perhaps you are going through a life transition or school/work-related stress is at its high. Maybe your interpersonal relationships are flaring up or you are struggling with your self-esteem. Regardless of your reasons, I am glad you are here.

As a first generation, South Asian immigrant, I understand the complexities of growing up within a collectivistic culture while also being exposed to individualistic social pressures and trying to find a healthy balance between the two. My therapeutic approach always acknowledges culture as an important aspect to one’s mental health journey.

I primarily work through a Cognitive-Behavioral and/or Humanistic lens; however I am a strong believer that each individual benefits from a tailored therapeutic approach that best fits them!

I offer in-person therapy sessions if you are able to visit the Diagnostic and Counseling Center in Agoura Hills, CA. At this time, I do not have availability for telehealth video or phone sessions.

Please email me a brief message and we will discuss a good time to have a phone consultation. I look forward to meeting you!
