30-min free consultation
The Bay Area is inundated with therapists. While it’s great to have so many available resources, trying to find the right fit for you can feel really overwhelming. And finding the right fit matters! I offer a free 30-minute consultation (in person or by phone) so you can get a sense of whether we’re a good match. During this time, we can talk about what you would like to get out of therapy, my approach, and whether my style resonates with you.
I am experienced in many evidence-based therapy modalities, including attachment theory, cognitive behavioral therapy, psychodynamic principles, mindfulness practices, and solution-focused therapy. I combine these and more experimental practices to tailor therapy to your unique needs. My work is especially helpful for people experiencing anxiety, depression, self-doubt, lack of motivation, and trouble with intimacy.
I have a special interest in providing therapy for South Asian people and those in minority groups. That said, I believe firmly that therapy is for everyone. I am committed to providing respectful, sensitive, and compassionate services for all.
We all crave to be understood and accepted, especially by our partners. When we don’t feel that way in our relationships, our thoughts can spiral, doubts might arise, and communication can break down. Sometimes it feels impossible to even admit that something is wrong, let alone talk openly about how we feel and what we need.
Couples therapy is an opportunity to hit the reset button and look at a cherished bond with fresh eyes. Only with honest clarity can partners realize the behaviors, negative assumptions, and dynamics that harm their relationship; only with kindness can they work together towards meaningful change. I create a safe and open space where you can share with each other and really listen. I provide tools and resources to help partners appreciate one another’s perspectives, foster healthier communication, and ultimately build a more fulfilling relationship.
