About me

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

In terms of multiculturalism, I have a particular passion for treatment of psychological issues impacting ethnic minorities. My dissertation research focused on the challenges faced by many South Asians attempting to balance Western and Eastern philosophies of living and the impact on 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 therapeutic 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.”

Let us collaborate as a team to schedule an email or phone consultation to answer any and all questions you may have about psychotherapy.
