About me

I strive to create a safe, supportive, non-judgmental space for clients who feel burdened with hard feelings. You may be navigating a period of anxiety or depression, struggling with a difficult phase of life, unsure of how to move beyond past experiences, or feeling badly about who you are as a person or loved one. We will create a collaborative and respectful partnership where we can work through these questions together, empowering you to find your path back to joy and calm in your life. Together, I believe we can rediscover your strength, hope, and confidence. Wherever you are in your journey towards wellness, I will meet you there and will walk with you in a collaborative relationship towards healing. I welcome and am actively affirming of all sexualities, gender identities, and cultural backgrounds, and have particular experience with LBGTQ+ clients who are navigating the intersection of sexuality and culture or adjusting to life transitions, including parenthood.

Service introduction

I specialize in working with college students through established adults, and have particular experience with clients experiencing infertility, adjusting to parenthood or navigating the joys and challenges of older children. Fluent in Hindi, Urdu, and Punjabi, in addition to English, I bring a multicultural lens to my work and often partner with clients navigating multiple cultures and identities. I operate primarily from a cognitive-behavioral perspective, using my years of experience to incorporate mindfulness, person-centered therapies, attachment theory, hypnotherapy, and solution-focused work to craft an approach tailored to your specific needs.
