Our mental health is equally important as our physical well-being and I believe in creating a safe, non judgmental and open environment to foster introspection and personal growth.
Due to our life circumstances and unique experiences, our thought patterns and behaviors may need to be reassessed and reframed. I grew up in a multicultural environment interacting with people of varied backgrounds and I deeply understand the complexities culture and migration can have on our mental health. I draw elements from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Psychodynamic Therapy in my practice to help identify and examine biases in our thought processes.
I hold a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Syracuse University and am currently on track to complete a Masters in Mental Health Counseling from Iona University. As a complement to my clinical training, I also work at NewYork Prebyterian - Weill Cornell at an Intensive Psychiatric Unit with adolescent and adult populations with a variety of severe psychiatric conditions. Previously, I have also worked at the same hospital in the Borderline Personality Disorder Unit which specializes in treating individuals with comorbid personality, mood and substance use disorders.
I am fluent in English and Hindi and I look forward to working with you in the future.
