About me

I am a New Jersey based Clinician who provides Crises intervention services to families of mentally ill. I am available by phone, email and zoom.

With 20 plus years of experience in designing interventions, for mental health and substance abuse, I am the first call for help for families, helping them determine what might be underlying cause of behavior and determine what are risks vs benefits of mental health treatment. Then I help the family select appropriate level of care and provider. I provide psycho education on symptoms and how to cope and manage the symptomatic person.  My style is informal, supportive and goal is to educate & empower family members to take steps towards getting their loved one in treatment and create a context for change. I teach motivational techniques and create collaboration between all parties. I speak Hindi and Gujarati .

My recommendation is please don’t act like you did not see what you just saw. Trust your gut. Family is the first Diagnostician and know base line of loved one, obtaining professional mental health intervention will prevent a problem from developing. Trail and errors will cost you in time l, health and money. Professional guidance will give you peace of mind. First 15 minutes of phone consultation is free. Good luck.
