About me

*ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS*

I am a licensed clinical psychologist in the state of Texas and based in the city of Austin. I specialize in culturally responsive and evidence-based care for children, adolescents, adults, and parents that are coping with anxiety, depression, relationship or adjustment issues, acculturation, and chronic illness or pain. I also focus on integrative care by providing consultations to and coordinating treatment with schools, pediatricians, psychiatrists, and family practice physicians in the community.

I am very passionate about and dedicated to teaching, training, and supervision. I have had prior experiences of supervising psychology interns and practicum students along with psychiatry medical students and residents at various academic medical centers. I am currently a Course Instructor in the Department of Counseling, Leadership, Adult Education, and School Psychology at Texas State University and plan to continue teaching and training while providing psychological care in a private practice setting.

During graduate school, I specialized in research related to second-generation South Asian women seeking help after being victims of sexual abuse. I have always been dedicated to helping South Asian Americans navigate issues related to their intersectional identities. I know it is difficult to seek and reach out for support, especially when there may be stigma or lack of resources in our communities. Thus, I hope that in working with me, we can work collaboratively to help you lead an authentic life that aligns with with your values, culture, and goals.
