About me

A majority of my clients are South Asian men and women ages 25-45 and couples who want help with anxiety, depression, developing better communication with family and establishing a better relationship with their partner. The most common things I hear from my clients are that their non-South Asian therapists either didn’t understand the family dynamics, all they did was listen without offering solutions, or that you could not really tell if therapy was actually working.

I have been a therapist for 12 years and a professor for almost 10 years but I still emphasize how important it is to be relatable and create a space where you can freely speak about your issues. I help you take control of your anxiety or depression by identifying and acknowledging your true needs without feeling guilty and confronting difficult emotions like shame. I also help you make changes to feel less stuck in work or relationships that are not serving you and offer you real-life solutions you can use immediately.

I am a therapist who:

  • Talks about your issues right away during the first session
  • Speaks freely with you in a confidential space where you can speak openly without judgment
  • Offers flexible online appointment scheduling (Monday-Friday sessions as early as 6am and as late as 8pm) so you can join on your phone or computer from wherever you are most comfortable

I have taught Clinical Psychology courses at the university level on the following evidence-based models: Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Attachment-based/Psychodynamic Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Existential Therapy, Reality Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and Bowen Family Systems. I regularly use techniques and interventions from these treatment models but in a conversational way that offers comfort and support. In addition to my work in clinical psychology, I have also worked in consulting, business administration, and sales in manufacturing, tech, healthcare, aerospace, and automotive.
