I moved to the US from India in 2001 to attend the University of Virginia and...I stayed. I have the unique position of simultaneously being both an insider (having lived here 22 years) and an outsider (as an immigrant). This dual identity specifically allows me to understand your experience as a South Asian living in the US.
Life can be challenging for everyone, but especially for those of us living with the dual experience of being an outsider and insider in this country. Does it seem like even when you have clarity about the problematic thoughts and behaviors in your life, you are unable to break the patterns? On one hand, you may have anxiety about the future, and on the other hand, you may have unresolved feelings about the past. You yearn for the consistency and reliability that stems from insight into your thoughts and behavior patterns. You want to set goals, but don’t know where to start. You want mental health treatment that empowers you by cultivating both your self-awareness and problem solving skills. I can help you with that.
I offer a nonjudgmental, safe space where my clients can examine their inner landscape with my support. My approach to therapy is eclectic and holistic, integrating a variety of modalities. I choose the approach that best serves my client’s needs, helping them uncover and capitalize on their existing strengths.
Asking for help is often the hardest part of the healing process. I invite you to reach out and get the support you need and deserve.
