As a first-generation American woman of Indian descent, the daughter of immigrants, I understand how difficult it is to find a therapist you connect with and how healing and validating it is to work with a therapist you feel safe with and who welcomes the exploration of identity and intersectionality in the therapeutic space. In my virtual practice, I hold supportive and non-judgmental space for healing, growth, and self-discovery for those with multiple marginalized identities experiencing anxiety, depression, workplace stress, relationship issues, family dynamics, life transitions, cultural or racial stress, systemic oppression, internalized oppression, and trauma. My clients are often BIPOC, immigrants, first-generation Americans, and those with LGBQ+ and TGNC identities, among others. My therapy style is tailored to your needs and incorporates techniques from several therapeutic frameworks, including psychodynamic therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), mindfulness, person-centered therapy, and multicultural and feminist therapy. We are both active participants in the therapy relationship, collaborating to meet your goals through validation, exploration, and empathetic challenging. Sometimes our process looks like drawing connections between your past and your present. It often includes accepting and reframing your experiences, thoughts, and feelings. We may also work to develop new cognitive and behavioral skills and strategies to improve mental health, cope with life’s challenges, and foster healthier relationships.
