About me

Seeking therapy can be a difficult decision. You may be ready to open up and talk to someone, you may believe it will be helpful, but there is a little voice that is holding you back from reaching out. While this hesitation is a common occurrence for many, being of South Asian descent can complicate matters further. This is just one reason you are in the right place to take this step. Connecting with someone who shares your background bridges the gap instantly and makes it that much easier to delve into whatever you might be experiencing. One of the most important determinants of progress in therapy is fit between client and therapist. Meeting with a South Asian therapist ensures a level of familiarity and comfort that allow you to be truly open and vulnerable while breathing a sigh of relief knowing you will be understood.

As you browse the profiles of the therapists on this site,  I encourage you to consider what other qualities matter to you in a therapist. What are you looking for, what do you hope to get out of therapy, and what approach are you most drawn to? As a psychodynamically oriented therapist, I believe that much of what underlies our experience lies just below the surface of our immediate awareness. As we share our thoughts and feelings, we discover what was previously obscured from view and gain greater insight into the beliefs that perpetuate the patterns in our lives. As these insights unfold, we are gifted with the freedom to choose our path and pursue what we actually want rather than what we’ve been conditioned to accept.

The process of therapy can be both liberating and transformative. As the relationship between therapist and client develops, possibilities emerge that did not seem to exist before. We become more embodied, more complete, and more connected with our authentic selves.
