At one point or another in our lives, we, as human beings, will experience imbalance for some particular reason or another. We live in a world where we encounter daily life stressors, related to our personal, professional, and societal interactions. We tend to work through a lot on our own, yet at times there are situations and/or problems which seem to be beyond our control. This is when we need to take a closer look and ask ourselves whether it’s time to seek professional help. A professional therapist, like me, will provide that extra support and guidance in helping you understand and cope with current stressors, in a safe and therapeutic environment.
I am a clinical social worker/therapist who is trained for looking through the lens of an integrative perspective. For one’s struggles to be best understood, the confusion surrounding the person needs to be taken into consideration, hence allowing for a more positive, meaningful, and long lasting outcome. I work with your individualized complexity and uniqueness of your particular environment so that we can collaborate in defining, understanding, assessing, planning, and targeting the goals which are important for you to achieve during therapy with me.
I am multi-lingual, having professional fluency in communicating in English, Hindi, Punjabi, and Urdu. I work well with teenagers and adults from many different backgrounds and experiences. I am originally from India and have been here for over 30 years.
I completed my dual undergraduate degree at Louisiana State University, receiving my Bachelors of Science (BS) in Psychology and Sociology in December 1996.
