About My Clients

Do you struggle with negative thoughts or self talk? Unchecked, these thoughts start racing and keep you up at night. Constant dwelling on the past or future can lead to depression, worry, stress & anxiety which can affect your relationships with your loved ones. What we all have in common is that we want to feel happy, feel connected to our loved ones and live free of worry, sadness, anger and disappointment. If you are not sure how to get to this place of contentment, I'm here to help you.

My Background and Approach

I am a Certified EMDR therapist who works with individuals dealing with anxiety, trauma, depression and chronic pain. I use multiple treatment modalities such as Cognitive Behavior therapy, DBT, Mindfulness based therapy and The Gottman model to address relationship issues, anger, trauma, grief, caregiver stress, transitional and multi-cultural issues. Having worked professionally both in India and California, I bring a diverse perspective to your experience. I love learning and share my knowledge with you in the form of take-home articles & worksheets which equip you with skills needed to build resilience. My goal is for you to have at least five different tools and techniques that you can turn to at all times. I listen to you objectively and with compassion to help you live mindfully and with intention. Together, we can explore the challenges that keep you from finding your potential and steer you in your journey towards a stress-free and fulfilling life.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am strongly convinced of the incredible healing powers of the mind, body and spirit. I believe that with the right help at the right time, everyone can change and grow. Evolutionarily, we're programmed to scan our environment for potential threats, predisposing us to focus on the negative. We learn some unhealthy behaviors through nature or nurture, which turn into habits. Just as we've learned them, we can unlearn these behaviors or habits and replace them with healthy ones. I firmly believe in the power of knowledge and will teach you about the neuronal connections behind the fight-flight-freeze response which cause anxiety and panic attacks. Witnessing my clients' growth and freedom from the binds of negative thoughts and lifestyles gives me immense gratification and fuels my passion for helping people. Having studied Yoga and mindfulness, I understand the correlation between the mind and the somatic experience. Please contact me to learn more about how I can help you.
