About My Clients

I am dual specialized as a mental health and rehabilitation counselor, and work with individuals and couples/unions from all sociocultural backgrounds. My work has a strong social justice orientation that emphasizes equity, accessibility and inclusion. I specialize in therapy for anxiety, depression, living with and surviving marginalization/oppression, identity formation and expression, stress and trauma, body diversity/eating disorders, and living with a disability or chronic pain/illness.

My Background and Approach

I graduated from Portland State University with a Masters in Counseling, and have accrued intensive experience working in different clinical settings over the last few years. I am multilingual (fluent in English, Gujarati, Hindi, Swahili, and Punjabi), and as a therapist, I draw heavily from my own experience as a transnational citizen: believing fully in the interconnected nature of our human experience. My work has a strong social justice orientation that centers the values of equity, inclusion and accessibility. I strive to create a trusting, non-judgmental, respectful and empowering brave/safe space that fully includes my client’s unique identity intersections, life experiences, strengths/barriers and aspirations. I am a Queer, BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color), kink/poly, and fat/body affirming, feminist therapist who uses a non-hierarchal, collaborative and individually-tailored approach to therapy. My pronouns are he/him.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I work from a place of cultural humility and an ever-improving understanding of my own intersections of privilege/marginalization. I believe that healing, growth and thriving result from a holistic integration of the mind, body and spirit. As my client, you will be in the driving seat of your therapeutic experience: You will determine the goals we work on, the pace we take, the approaches we adopt, and the outcomes we aspire towards. One of my specializations, as a therapist, is an individually and culturally tailored program for those experiencing the trauma and stressors of living with marginalized identities - as well as those from more dominant/privileged identity backgrounds who want to learn to be better allies to historically marginalized communities. I believe that in today's times it is critical to heal wounds, build bridges, and uplift one another - and focused/intentional therapy is a critical tool to begin/progress on this journey.
