About me

Hi, I am Puja, a licensed clinical social worker and yoga teacher, specializing in psychodynamic, CBT and trauma informed practices. I have witnessed the impact of therapy and mindfulness practices work together to create meaningful change within myself and others.  There is a powerful intersection between therapy and mindful practices that can bring relief from anxiety, depression and trauma.

With a deep understanding of the South Asian experience,  I understand the complexity of the first generation experience and how finding your own voice can be hard.  I feel confident that my own experiences and expertise can support you in your process.  I am also passionate about contributing to the lives of all minorities, women, and LGBTQ populations.

I look forward to hearing your story and guide you in understanding 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 feel free to reach out for a quick consult or to schedule your first meeting.
