Counselor in Kirkland, WA

About My Clients

Are you wondering why your relationships are struggling? Are you in an interracial relationship and finding bridging cultural gaps challenging? Is trauma impacting your connections with yourself and others? We are wired to connect - we thrive on our connections with our spouses, children, friends and coworkers. The quality of these relationships makes a huge impact on our overall well being. Let me help you find the best version of yourself in relationships.

My Background and Approach

I am a cis South Asian immigrant, settler woman living in the greater Seattle area. I hold a Masters in Counseling Psychology from LIOS Saybrook University and a Masters in Environmental Anthropology. My experience includes working with POC, genderqueer individuals, and couples to address anxiety, depression, ADHD, and racial trauma, that impact relationships. My approach is integrative and I use what is happening in the moment in session both somatically and emotionally to help you gain a better understanding of self and others. I draw from emotionally focused therapy, narrative therapy, Gottman, cognitive-behavioral therapy and social justice framework theories to help you articulate the best version of yourself. I believe therapy is a co-created space and I offer you an invitation to come discover what is possible when you are held in safety, curiosity and non-judgement.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Ultimately, I do not believe that you are broken. Your distress as an individual and in your relationships is appropriate in the face of climate collapse, colonialism, capitalism, white supremacy, transphobia, ableism, and adultism. As such I am not here to fix you.​With me, you will get someone who is compassionate, warm, direct, and collaborative. Always, our work together will be something we co-create. Therapy, then, is a third space of sorts, where those disenfranchised by toxic and harmful systems can begin to articulate not only the harms but also their longings. A space of generative refusal.
