About me

**Telehealth guidelines note:  I am NY state-licensed and have temporary NJ licensure (via COVID guidelines), which means I am able to provide therapy to individuals residing in these two states only at this time.**

As a clinical psychologist, I specialize in working with adult and geriatric clients with a range of cognitive and socio-emotional problems. My clinical interests and specialties include treating clients with comorbid anxiety, depression, insomnia, chronic pain, trauma, grief and loss, anger and stress management, neurocognitive disorders, caregiver burden, and a range of issues related to multiculturalism in health care.

I have a particular passion for treatment of psychological issues impacting ethnic minorities. My clinical interest remains focused on the challenges faced by many South Asians attempting to balance Western and Eastern philosophies of living and the impact on physical and emotional wellbeing.  As we each learn to adapt to cultural globalization moderated by social media and the like, it is becoming increasingly important for us to stay connected while learning to preserve each of our individual identities.

Using an integrative and strength-based approach, my goal in treatment is to educate, empower, and collaborate with clients to help them attain their respective therapy goals and maximize their overall emotional well being.

Asking or receiving help can often times be anxiety-provoking, shameful, or overwhelming for some. However, as Carl Jung once said, “I am not what happened to me. I am what I choose to become.”

Please email me if you are interested in scheduling a complimentary phone consultation.  I look forward to hearing from you!
