About me

Please see below for appointment fees before scheduling an appointment. I do not accept insurance at this time. Appointments are available to New York and Connecticut residents only.


As a Pakistani American psychiatrist, raised in a New York-based, Urdu-speaking Muslim family, I deeply understand the intricate balance of growing up in a South Asian household while navigating the pressures of American culture. Whether it’s dealing with the challenges of cultural identity, parental involvement in adulthood, societal views on interracial relationships, reconciling secular and religious lifestyles, addressing issues of sexuality, confronting the stigma around mental health, or grappling with the looming thought of “Log Kya Kahenge” (What will people say?), I am here to help and you’re certainly not alone.

While your immediate concerns might revolve around conditions like depression, anxiety, ADHD, or insomnia, it’s equally essential to recognize and understand the unique sociocultural factors that influence your mental well-being. Together, we can create a treatment plan that includes talk therapy, medications, or both.

Our journey will not just be about treating symptoms. It will be a deep dive into the various aspects of your life, honoring both your South Asian roots and your American experiences. Whether we meet in person or via telehealth, each session is tailored to your specific needs. As a board-certified psychiatrist who trained at Yale University’s School of Medicine, you can trust in receiving the most up-to-date, evidence-based care.

Considering quality mental health care is a worthy investment. I welcome self-paying patients, ensuring that the focus remains on your needs and progress.

Ready to embark on a journey toward improved mental and emotional well-being? Learn more or schedule an appointment at www.PerformanceNewYork.com. Wellness can start as early as this week. Don’t hesitate—reach out today.
