About me

I am a Sri Lankan-Japanese therapist specializing in treating adults with anxiety, depression, race-related stress, and trauma. I am well-versed in working with minority populations, Asian, South Asian, and anyone who identifies as multi-racial/ethnic. Additionally, I have extensive experience in supporting immigrants, children of immigrants, international students, marginalized populations to overcome challenges and become more resilient.

My mission as a therapist is to create a world where emotional healing is accessible to everyone. I am here to support clients who are marginalized or experiencing difficulties in their life, but never found a safe space to heal or could not find an empathetic therapist. As a bi-ethnic immigrant and a woman of color, I know that having a trusting support system is key to a fulfilling life. I also know how important it is for you to find an empathic therapist who can create a warm and safe environment. I am here to offer you a place of healing and compassion. I look forward to beginning this journey with you!
