About me

Starting your therapy journey can be scary and confusing. As a psychotherapist, I believe the therapeutic relationship is nothing without a human connection. As people, it’s important for us to feel safe and respected in spaces where we are being vulnerable. I am passionate about working collaboratively to create a warm, inviting space in which you feel heard and understood. I aim to help you identify and use the strengths you already possess, to help you create a life you love and are proud of. I approach healing through a trauma-informed lens. I utilize Compassion-Focused Therapy as well as Narrative Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help you become an active participant in the change you are seeking to create.

Throughout my life, I have found a deep appreciation for the complexity of identity, not only individual, but familial and cultural as well. Identities are complex and created through a collection of various roles we play throughout our lives. Oftentimes, navigating the balance and diversity of these roles can be overwhelming. I enjoy partnering with individuals who would like to further explore and gain a deeper understanding of their own self-proclaimed identities, no matter the intersectionality you may identify with. Being a first generation, South Asian immigrant myself, I can empathize with the need to find balance within the many aspects of our lives. There are many things within our lives, external and internal, that can be difficult to navigate alone; finding a therapist who is a good fit for you, can be a great help.
