About me

Hello, I’m Dr. Shah!  Are you feeling overwhelmed, stuck, and feel ready to learn how to strengthen your coping skills to better yourself? Using an integrative and strength-based approach, in treatment, my clinical specialties include treating clients with anxiety, depression, acute and chronic pain, trauma, sleep disturbances, grief and loss, anger and stress management, relationship stress, and caregiver distress (including caregivers of loved ones with TBI, dementia). The goal in treatment is to become the best version of yourself.

Within our larger South Asian community, my goal is to both raise awareness to and reduce stigma associated with seeking psychotherapy, and explore the emotional 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, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.

Please email me if you are interested in scheduling a 15-minute complimentary phone/video consultation.

**Telehealth guidelines noteI am a New York State licensed psychologist and provide teletherapy (video sessions) at this time.  As per NY state board for telehealth practice, regardless of your state of residence, as long as sessions take place while you are physically located in NY state, that is acceptable.   If you have any questions, please email me. I look forward to hearing from you!
