About me

Feeling disconnected or at odds with yourself can be debilitating. You may wrestle with self-doubt, hopelessness, or anger. You might engage in disruptive relational patterns or face challenges in your relationships. Or you may endure overwhelming thoughts and emotions you don’t know how to handle.

If you struggle to comprehend, develop, or ground who you are, I can help you. Therapy is a collaborative space to get to know your authentic self, answer your questions, and alleviate your symptoms. We’ll review how your experiences may have impacted your current emotions or habits, explore your identity, and build your confidence and self-worth to make meaningful changes.

I entered the mental health field to help people understand and strengthen their relationship with themselves. My journey as an Indian raised in the Middle East and an international student in the U.S.” led to a particular interest in identity development within a non-native culture. I value the opportunity to examine this in my work with immigrants, children of immigrants, and multicultural individuals.

Unique approach

I follow a person-centered approach. Everyone is capable of growth and transformation, and the bond between therapist and client is vital to make that happen.

I also practice with a multicultural lens and psychodynamic foundation. I’ll help you navigate the intersection of your identities and gain insight into your relationship with yourself, your culture, your environment, and the people in your life.

Specialties:

I work with young adults and adults from diverse ethnic, racial, cultural, and religious backgrounds.
I provide online therapy in English and Hindi.
