About me

Imagine waking up each morning, putting on a mask that’s not really you. On the outside, it’s this image shaped by what your family and culture expect, but inside, it’s like you’re wrestling with this heavy feeling. Anxiety and depression tag along, showing up because you’re stuck between who you were raised to be and the person you truly want to be.

In your world, family and cultural values aren’t just suggestions—they’re like these big guides telling you what choices to make. There’s this weight to always “make your family proud” and be perfect at everything. Since you were practically a kid, you’ve been trained to be this super-achiever, handling way more than your fair share. People-pleasing becomes a habit, and somewhere along the way, you start losing sight of the real you. The face staring back at you in the mirror becomes a stranger, and loving that person becomes a real struggle.

This story isn’t just yours; it’s a shared experience for many Indian American women, myself included. I’ve been in those same battles. So, let’s unpack the journey that brought you here, figuring out the tough parts and spotting those patterns that might be holding you back. I want to help you build strong relationships, set boundaries that actually work, and make sure your needs are heard.

I’m here to create a safe space for you, where you can let out all that anxiety, shame, and guilt that you carry around every day. Whether you need to vent, swear a little, or just have a good cry about everything, I’m all ears and ready to support you. Together, we can start letting go of the stuff from the past that’s been keeping you stuck.

It’s time to break free from the expectations that have been holding you down and take back the driver’s seat of your own life. Let’s learn to be part of the decisions we make, building up self-love and acceptance along the way. Reach out now, and we can set up a free 15-minute chat. This could be the push you need for the positive change you’ve been wanting. You’ll be really glad you did.
