Practice Description
I am a licensed clinical psychologist who has been providing psychotherapy since 2012. If you are experiencing stress, depression, low self-esteem, career/life transitions, family/relationship issues -- I can help you come up with a personalized plan for getting better by providing a confidential, trusting and supportive environment and sincere, direct and flexible interactions with me. I can assist with social anxiety, obsessions and compulsions, traumatic experiences, and alcohol/drug use. I am particularly attuned to working with both first and second generation immigrants and those balancing multiple cultural identities.
We will collaborate to better understand the sources of frustration and discontent in your life, and work towards genuinely expressing your emotions, finding better ways to cope, and understanding and connecting with yourself and others. I will help you develop compassion, forgiveness, and self-awareness, and help you become the best version of yourself.

Across different kinds of distress, I help people recognize their assumptions and expectations about themselves and the world, and the impact of these assumptions on their ability to be happy and content. I enjoy working with people who want to better manage their emotions, improve their communication and relationships, and those who want to grow their wisdom while dealing with life conflicts and difficult choices

I use therapy techniques that are backed by research and clinical evidence (see my website). Since starting therapy can be difficult, I offer a free phone consultation to get you started. Please email or call me, and I will be happy to help you decide if therapy is the right choice for you. I am fluent in both English and Hindi.
