As a South Asian woman, first generation immigrant, and mental health clinician; I have a unique understanding of the psychological impact that growing up in desi household can have on your mental health. I specialize in working with immigrants and first-generation immigrants, helping you navigate the experience of coping with the expectations of culture and family obligation. I aim to help you integrate your bicultural experience of life by assessing the pros and cons of both your collectivistic Indian upbringing as well as your individualistic American upbringing.
In my practice I work with adults navigating various mental health concerns such as Anxiety, Depression, Self Esteem, Marital and Relationship Conflict, Family conflict, Career transitions, Break ups/Dating, Perfectionism, People pleasing, Intergenerational Trauma, Childhood trauma, Sexual trauma, and Life transitions.
Therapy can be the catalyst for promoting positive changes in your life. My approach to therapy is integrative, relational, holistic, and culturally sensitive. I see my clients experience through their own cultural upbringing and perspective, ensuring your experience of life is understood, in a safe and supportive space.
Relationships are at the center of all our lives, whether this is the relationship you have with yourself or others. If you are experiencing self-esteem issues, going through a difficult break up, having difficulty in dating, or experiencing issues in your intimate relationships, therapy can help. I believe there is no relationship more important, than the relationship we have with ourselves. Enhancing one’s feelings of self-worth can be the catalyst for transformational change in all arenas of one’s life. Break ups involve a unique grieving process. If you are unable to grieve the loss of an intimate relationship in a safe and supportive space, the wounds of that loss may continue to impact your future relationships in a negative way.
Relationships take work, and this includes healthy communication, mutual respect, conflict management, and empathy building. I aim to provide my couples with the tools needed to achieve a successful and thriving relationship. I use John and Julie Gottman’s scientifically backed method of couple’s therapy, when working with couples. I also utilize an attachment based lease using emotionally focused couples therapy methods.
I believe there is nothing more important in therapy than finding the right fit for you, which is why I offer a free 15 minute phone consultation. This allows you to ask me any questions you may have as well as gives me a chance to get to know what you need out of therapy right now.
All sessions are currently offered via a HIPAA complaint teletherapy video platform. I am accepting new clients all across the state of California.
