Bio

As an individual…YOU are good. Society, our environment, our relationships, and our own thoughts create messages that have an impact on how we view ourselves and the life we are living. Some of those messages create habits and coping mechanisms that can have negative consequences, consequences that inhibit you from knowing the goodness that lies deep within you. Knowing your inherent goodness gives you the framework and foundation to tackle the tougher issues we will work on together. While it won’t solve all your problems, it is an indispensable starting point for your healing journey.

As a therapist, I am your guide in helping you acknowledge and address the messages and stories that are inhibiting your path to embracing goodness. I use a Narrative, Solution Focused therapy approach that includes the Enneagram to help you acknowledge issues, recognize the strengths within yourself and take responsibility for the journey towards healing.

I have training and experience in the US and in India and in helping individuals and couples from diverse backgrounds with relationship and parenting issues, substance abuse, identity, depression and severe mental illness. The CAADC-Dp certification also enables me to provide Alcohol and Substance Abuse education either on an individual or group level.
