About the Therapist

My goal is to help you come up with potential solutions to issues in a collaborative way. I would like things to improve quickly for you but at the same time, the goal is to come up with lifelong tools and coping strategies that will hopefully help you for the rest of your life. I utilize evidence-based techniques while being warm, empathetic, and authentic. I will challenge you and encourage you to be your authentic self in session.  Therapy should be a place in which you can talk about your issues openly and without reservation. Mental health is just as important as physical health and addressing both components will result in a healthier, happier life. 

Parenthood brings a lot of uncertainty and little to no control which can be so difficult to accept. I understand the many joys and stresses of parenthood both personally and professionally. The family unit is a system so each person effects the other. Healthy communication between everyone results in improved relationships. I will help you through this process. I look at attachment and bonding when working with new families. It is important that you feel safe and comfortable with non-judgment during our time together.  I am passionate about women's health and utilize the research from the field within my clinical work.

I earned a BA in psychology and sociology from The Ohio State University and went on to earn a master's degree in counseling with a specialization in clinical counseling. I am a licensed, board-certified professional counselor. On a personal note, I lived in both India and the United States during my early childhood which gives me a unique perspective. I am currently working towards certification in integrative medicine as I believe it is important to address mental health from an integrative perspective.
