Welcome, I am grateful you are here.


Helping others work through their problems and build a healthy relationship with their emotions, even the “ugly ones”, is my passion. I provide therapy with my whole heart, and am deeply invested in my clients’ wellbeing. I create an open, safe, and nonjudgmental space to be vulnerable. I invite you to share your truest thoughts, and ask the tough questions to help you gain a deeper understanding of yourself. The most effective part of therapy is the relationship we build with each other and that is my first priority.

Associate Professional Clinical Counselor #10469

Who I Work With and Challenges I Support:

I specialize in working with adolescents and young adults from the South Asian community but welcome all cultures & backgrounds! Clients I typically work with….

  • feel suffocated by the voice in their head

  • find their cultural experiences and expectations traumatic

  • reduce their value and self worth based on their pain or perceived failures


If this sounds like you, and you are ready to transform the relationship with yourself, I am here to hold space for you. I teach you to listen to the information communicated by your emotions, thoughts, and physical sensations. We get to learn together how your background and experiences have impacted your core beliefs and identity. Our work will include reconnecting with the humanness of you, and move through life intentionally and authentically.


I safely guide you to face your triggers to heal the underlying wound, effectively releasing their control over you. We work from reacting to our situations, to appropriately responding. This can involve somatic (body-based) exercises, and reframing the story that plays in a loop in our minds.


I provide supportive accountability and practical skills so you can begin to take control of your life & enjoy it. We will find a balance between self improvement and self acceptance. My purpose is to help you heal your internal world, impacting change in your external world.


Why I Am Here:

I have personal experience of being misguided by my thoughts and emotions much of my life, preventing me from living life fully and in the way I deserve. It also took me many years and personal work to see my emotions and vulnerability as my superpower, not weakness.


No one should be with their pain and suffering alone. Knowing first hand how isolating, confusing, self debilitating that can be, I have been guided to hold space for others.


How To Get Started & Logistics:

I provide 50 minute, telehealth sessions. I pull from different therapeutic approaches to provide you with specialized and holistic support. I am committed to continued professional development to give you my best.


If you’re interested in working with me, the first step is to schedule a brief consultation. You can contact me at the phone number or email below. I look forward to learning how I can support you and if we are a good fit for each other.
