About the Therapist

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 to me 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.

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 genuine. I want therapy to be a place in which you can talk about your issues openly and without reservation. I believe that mental health is just as important as physical health and addressing both components results in a healthier, happier life. 

 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. I am currently completing postgraduate courses addressing women's mental health and mind body medicine at Harvard Medical School.

On a personal note, I am a married mom of three.  My parents were born and raised in India. I lived both in India and the United States during my childhood which gives me a unique perspective.
