About me

Do you struggle with overthinking, feeling hopeless or disconnected to yourself and others? Hi, I am Puja, a licensed clinical social worker and yoga teacher, dedicated to supporting you in finding your sense of calm when faced with hardships.

I understand the complexity of the first generation experience and how finding your own path can be hard.  I have found that sitting with a therapist with a similar background is validating and our starting point will be different because of a shared experience of being of South Asian decent. I also specialize in addressing symptoms of anxiety, depression, and trauma. My biggest passion is understanding the intersection of the mind-body connection and finding ways to feel in control of our reactions and boundaries.

I look forward to hearing your story and guide you in gaining awareness of how it has shaped you.  It takes courage to ask for help and be vulnerable. In a supportive and safe space, I will help you take steps to feel grounded, integrated in your mind and body and hopeful again. Please reach out for a 15 min discovery call and schedule your first meeting.
