They/sheMental Health Counselor - Limited Permit, MHC-LP Practice: Resilience Lab Specialties • Insurance & Fees • Locations
The step towards beginning therapy is a brave and vulnerable one to take. In today's world, we are asked to juggle multiple aspects of our lives seamlessly. Life is complicated and it can feel overwhelming to begin or continue your journey towards healing. I aim to collaboratively create a space in which you can pause, take a breath, and explore yourself, your relationships, and how they interact in the world that we live in. By taking a client-centered approach to working with my clients, I believe that clients are the experts on themselves and will tailor my approach according to your strengths and needs. I aim to help you feel empowered in your choices and align authentically with your values. I hope to create a non-judgemental and tender space in which you can show up authentically and feel safe enough to be curious.
I’m experienced in using a trauma-informed lens, a family-systems approach, a feminist and multicultural framework, as well as CBT and DBT interventions to aid you in your therapeutic journey. I have worked with BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ individuals and families and strive to provide affirming care. As a queer South Asian immigrant, I am well-versed in immigrant issues, acculturation, and the international student experience. I recognize diverse relationship structures, such as non-monogamy, polyamory, and kink.
