About me

You might have worked with another therapist who just listened the whole session without many solutions and couldn’t understand the culture no matter how much you tried to explain it to them. Most of my clients are South Asian women who want a therapist who understands the culture and is solution-focused by being straight to the point. I am enthusiastic about helping you build resilience and practice skills that help you feel empowered. I use a collaborative approach and evidence-based techniques to help you overcome anxiety, depression, relationship issues and family issues. Therapy is not just a place to process severe mental health issues, sometimes you just need someone to talk to who understands you without feeling judged.

I am a therapist who:

  • Offers more solutions and does more in sessions than just listen
  • Has flexible availability (Monday-Friday, mornings/afternoons/evenings) that works with even the busiest schedules
  • Creates a safe space where you can speak freely without judgment

Most of my clients are South Asian women ages 20-35 and couples. I emphasize the importance of establishing your own values, offering solutions to complex problems and supporting you emotionally. At the same time, you figure out past triggers that influence your problems today. I use techniques from Attachment-based therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy and Mindfulness-based approaches to help you build skills that stay with you long after you leave therapy.

I have been a therapist and an adjunct Faculty Member at Pepperdine University for almost 10 years. I have taught several clinical psychology and counseling courses. In addition to my work in clinical psychology, I have also worked in business and academic administration. I also work with a diverse team of professionals who primarily serve South Asian clients, ensuring we are providing current services aligned with the values most important to our community.
