About me

The heart of my work centers around adults of the South Asian Diaspora (individuals from Pakistan, India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Myanmar, and Bangladesh). My work includes the voices of those who have navigated a multicultural experience, which commonly includes those who are Fijian, Guyanese, Trinidadian, Kenyan, etc. in addition to their South Asian identity. Additionally, my familiarity is common amongst the Muslim, Sikh, Hindu, Bhuddist, Christian, and Catholic, and Agnostic exposure. All of your identities are welcome and celebrated here.

My goal in emphasizing my practice here is to recognize a need for folks to have a therapist who truly understands their background and can create safety in talking about parts of the culture that can feel shameful or misunderstood from a Western perspective.

The most common areas of focus include family of origin issues, intergenerational trauma and creating space to heal your inner child, acknowledging your grief, exploring your TRUE identity, and cultivating positive relationships by creating boundaries and building self-esteem + confidence.

My goal is to provide healing to my community that is often underserved and overlooked when it comes to therapeutic services. Your stories matter. Your voices matter. Your healing matters.

Join me in the process of recovering from generational cycles and reclaiming your voice

 

 

I knew from a very young age that I wanted nothing more than to be a therapist. It is because of this, I take utmost pride in living in my truth and cultivating safe, compassionate, and welcoming therapeutic spaces.

I have been working in the field for 5+ years with vast counseling experiences. The most impactful being my own healing through encountering my very own therapists who have been a bright light on my path. It is from these transformational therapeutic experiences that I am here with you to continue to be a light as your journey begins.

I am very proud of my roots. I am a first generation child of South Asian (Punjab, India) and Pacific Islander (Fiji) immigrants. I very much understand the stigma associated with seeking help within our own communities and understand the essence of true bravery it takes to make a change.

It is through my experience as a brown woman that faced external pressure, doubt, fear, judgement, and my inner critical voice cracking my foundation, in which I was able to weave through a newfound internal resilience, balance, confidence, and wisdom.

It is healing through my own cycles and reclaiming my voice where I want to offer my message of hope and to continue to guide folks on their journey home to themselves.

My clinical approach highlights the relational aspect of therapy. I believe the therapeutic relationship is the vessel for personal gains and positive change. When you are able to experience a positive therapeutic relationship, it can start to positively influence the rest of your life.

It is from this perspective that I work to cultivate a safe, trusting, and caring space in order to support you through taking the small steps that become BIG outcomes.

When you sit with me, you can expect a therapist who is intentional, warm, and gentle. I always allow my clients to lead and consistently encourage my clients to share their feedback. I follow your pace and intuitively provide direction and gentle nudges to push through any static energy. I utilize a strengths based approach to integrate all aspects of your life in a way that weaves in growth and optimism.
