I am a culturally informed therapist who provides a safe space for others to process their life experiences. I identify as a woman of color as well as a child of immigrants of South Asian descent. I am also a wife and a mother of three on a personal parenting journey committed to raising my children to value themselves, diversity, and social equity. I am interested in learning who you are as a person, believing that you are the expert on your own life, while I am here to help you navigate the issues you encounter. My Values and Approach As a social worker, I try to embody the values of the profession, not only in my work, but in my daily life. I am committed to engaging in service and social justice that improves life for the greater good of the people. My spiritual and feminist values also fall in line with social work values and inform my work as a therapist. I wholly believe that you have strengths and supports that can assist you in shifting your perspective just enough to see the world with a clearer outlook. The approach I use with clients is person-centered and deeply values the client-therapist relationship as the foundation for positive growth and change. My hope for you is that you feel empowered through our work together to take back control in your life feeling confident and self-reliant. Cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and humanistic approaches in combination comprise of my therapeutic approach; however, in collaboration with you I create individualized treatment plans to cater to your specific needs and what you find will be most effective in creating long lasting change.
