Welcome! I'm deeply committed to guiding my clients towards their fullest potential, fostering a safe, non-judgmental, and compassionate therapeutic environment where healing and growth can flourish. With a collaborative and empowering approach, I find immense joy in supporting individuals and couples as they enhance their strengths, develop resilience, and gain greater emotional awareness to navigate life's myriad challenges.

Specializing in a range of areas including anxiety, depression, trauma/PTSD, communication, spiritual exploration, career transitions, executive stress management and more, I'm dedicated to providing tailored support that meets the unique needs of each individual or couple I work with.

My therapeutic approach is humanistic and holistic, drawing from a diverse toolkit of modalities such as Narrative Therapy, Mindfulness, Breathwork, Solution-Focused Therapy, Gestalt, Gottman Method Couples Therapy, Motivational Interviewing (MI), Nonviolent Communication (NVC), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and beyond. By customizing my approach to fit the specific needs and preferences of my clients, I strive to facilitate meaningful and lasting transformations.

With a profound respect for all cultures and a commitment to cultural competence, I ensure that individuals and couples from diverse backgrounds feel understood and valued in our therapeutic journey together. As a woman of South Asian heritage who immigrated to Canada from India at a young age and later to the US, I bring firsthand understanding of the complexities of cultural adaptation, social oppression, and minority stress. This unique perspective informs and enriches my work, allowing me to effectively address the intersection of cultural identity and mental health.

I hold a Master of Social Work from Portland State University and a Bachelor of General Science from the University of Oregon. My passion for holistic well-being led me to explore Ayurveda, yoga, meditation, exercise science, and wellness coaching, which enrich my therapeutic approach.

With a background in clinical therapy and extensive professional training, I'm here to support you on your path towards healing, growth, and empowerment.
