When I was a young adult in my 20s' and navigating therapy for the first time, I wished that there were more therapists with whom I could identify and relate. Now, as a therapist myself, I feel grateful to be in that position for others. I identify as a South Asian/Indian-American woman, an immigrant, 1.5 generation, and a person of color. I am interested in providing services to adults and couples who may be confronting their own identities, individually, in their relationships, in their families, and in the world at large. I have been in the field of social work for 20 years and have focused on private practice for the past 4 years. My style is respectful, compassionate, and direct. I have extensive experience with goal-oriented approaches, as well as a deep understanding for how social and cultural contexts impact our lives. In addition, my work is influenced by psychoanalytic theory and attachment theory, and is informed by an awareness of trauma, including complex and inter-generational trauma.
