My clinical approach includes exploring your beliefs, thoughts, and feelings, along with both current and early relationships. Utilizing evidence-based treatments, I incorporate customized treatment interventions after consideration of your cultural background. I infuse spirituality and mindfulness-based approaches to promote insight. With my gently direct but supportive style, I will encourage you to examine alternative ways of thinking that align with your values and will support you in your efforts to maintain the change you achieve in therapy.
My Philosophy for client change: My philosophy for client change involves creating a trusting and harmonious therapeutic relationship that fosters a collaborative and mellifluous melody conducive to receptivity and change. Just as choirmaster requires all the musicians to be collaboratively involved in producing a symphony, similarly, I believe that an integrated and intentional approach to therapy is required. I enjoy the use of metaphors in my clinical work. I adopt an integrated Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), and Process-Experiential/Emotion-Focused Therapy (PE-EFT) style nested within a multicultural lens. Oftentimes, I am humbled by my experiences as a clinician because as much as I believe that my compositions impact individuals and society, the music ultimately touches my life as well.
Professional Interests: I treat a wide range of presenting concerns including depression, anxiety, trauma recovery, family of origin issues, relationship problems, self-esteem issues, grief and bereavement, cross-cultural relationships and communications, cross-cultural adjustments, and adult ADHD.
About Me: I am a mom and I enjoy spending time with my family. I have lived in the U.S. for 10 years. During my free time, I love hiking and being in nature. I enjoy listening to spiritual discourses and identify as a practicing Hindu. I appreciate having interfaith dialogues. I am an LGBTQ+ ally and strive to create a safe space for identity exploration and empowerment.
