Asking for help can be a daunting task but it plays a large role in building a happier and healthier life. Welcome to the first step in your journey of healing and growth. I believe that change is created by an open and honest dialogue. I also believe that having strong and trusting relationship with clients is very important for the work we will be doing together. My approach consists of exploring your past experiences and interpreting how these experiences influence you in the present moment.
I earned my bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Human Health from Emory University, and I am currently completing my Master’s in Mental Health and Wellness Counseling through the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development at New York University. Prior to beginning my clinical training in mental health counseling, I worked in the healthcare sector at a market research firm, where I encountered on a first-hand basis the struggles and challenges people may encounter in the workforce. Additionally, as a first-generation Indian American, I can vouch for the importance of mental health in marginalized communities. I welcome every client of all cultural backgrounds with open arms and an open heart. I will value and respect your beliefs.
Therapy is not a one-size-fits-all and my intention is to provide a safe, empathetic, and non-judgmental space for you to show up as your authentic self and share your thoughts and feelings. Together, we will work to create attainable goals and develop adaptive skills that will positively impact areas of your life. Therapy can be difficult and arduous, but I can promise that I will be there with you every step of the way.
I am fluent in English with working knowledge in Spanish and Hindi. I look forward to being part of your journey.
