About me

I moved to the US from India in 2001 to attend the University of Virginia and…I stayed. I have the unique position of simultaneously being both an insider (having lived here 22 years) and an outsider (as an immigrant). This dual identity specifically allows me to understand your experience as a South Asian living in the US.

Starting therapy requires bravery and vulnerability. My goal is to make this act of courage on your part as comfortable as possible. I know what it feels like to share my experiences with a clinician and have them respond back to me with kindness, openness, and acceptance – sometimes simply by saying “You went through all that? Me too.”

My practice helps people with mood disorders, trauma histories, and addictions to gain stability and cultivate a deep sense of well-being in their lives. I also work with clients from  South Asian and immigrant communities to overcome our culture’s stigma around mental health.

Throughout our time together, you’ll learn to use effective coping strategies to manage difficult emotions, change your relationship to unhealthy patterns, and establish new behaviors that support who you want to become. As your therapist, my goal is for you to carve out an identity that’s rooted in introspection and healthy self-care practices so you can thrive—and not just survive.

By the end of each session, you’ll walk away with a deeper understanding about your life experiences along with concrete things you can work on to facilitate your personal growth and move your life in a positive direction.
