Trauma-informed care that respects and incorporates each individual’s cultural and linguistic needs

"I want to be all that I am capable of becoming."- Katherine Mansfield


About Me

woman smiling I was born in India and moved to the United States in my late 20’s. My journey has been unusual, in that I had the opportunity to live two separate lives, each incorporating it’s own cultural challenges and experiences.

By the time I left India, I was fluent in two Indian languages, had completed a master’s degree in Clinical Psychology, and was immersed in all the traditions of the sub-continent. The transition from there to here required adjusting to new norms, battling immigration, and minority-race issues, etc.

I have lived in the United States for several decades now and am happily immersed in the culture here. It has been wonderful to be able to straddle my different worlds, embrace myriad identities, and share a unique understanding of immigrant issues with the population I serve.

I started my private practice in 2017 in Washington DC and work with adults coping with life stressors, anxiety, depression, grief, transgenerational trauma, and mental illness. Before that, I spent a decade working with community mental health organizations in DC and MD, serving individuals suffering from severe mental illnesses, addiction, homelessness, etc.
