My experience in the field of social work spans over a decade through my education and work in India, USA and UK. This global exposure has given me a deeper understanding of clients from diverse ethnicities with a wide range of problems.
I use a holistic approach to understand your needs for therapy. I believe, as one shoe does not fit all sizes, one therapy technique does not work for all problems. Therefore, while I draw from Psychodynamic theory, we can integrate other techniques (Dialectical Behavior, EMDR, Behavioral Activation, Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral and Exposure Therapy) based on our discussion and assessment of your needs.
I hold the collaborative process of therapy in the highest esteem and I feel privileged to be part of this empowering process. I will continually strive to provide an environment of trust and support, where honest conversations and explorations can lead to discovery (or re-discovery) and desired change.
I can help with depression, anxiety, trauma, work-life balance, relationship stresses, bipolar disorder, family difficulties, parent-child problems, divorce, grief and loss, multicultural & bi-racial issues, co-occurring medical and mental health problems, sexual orientation issues, women’s issues & life transitions. I also speak Hindi and work with ages 10 and above.
