About me

Nothing human can be alien to me -Terence. Within the bounds of a safe relationship, I hope you can let the ugly, shameful and irrational parts of you breathe. Together, we can encounter them with compassion, as this is often where the work lies. I endeavor to create a warm holding environment for you as we explore issues more deeply and understand their origins through psychoanalytic, humanistic and relational perspectives. I share my conceptualizations with clients and provide psychoeducation to increase insight into our unconscious experiences, while honoring individual uniqueness, cultural nuances, and other complexities.

I enjoy working with BIPOC individuals (especially those that identify as AADPI and South Asian), first- and second- generation immigrants, LGBTQIA+ identifying individuals, men’s issues, and those with religious and/or spiritual backgrounds. I’m also interested in therapy with couples and intimate unions. I incorporate psychoeducation about trauma, relationships, and cognitive and emotional processes in order to empower clients and offer relief. I also draw from Adlerian, existential, and family systems theories. Additionally, I may incorporate behavioral tools from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) and techniques from psychodrama.

I am currently a fellow at Lakeview Center for Psychotherapy, and the Chicago Center for Psychoanalysis. I received my Master’s in Counseling from Northwestern University and have two years of clinical experience working with clients from a range of backgrounds and presenting issues. I feel honored to do this work and I look forward to working with you.
