About My Clients
I specialize in the treatment of eating disorders, anxiety, depression, and family dynamics. My experience includes working at residential, inpatient, partial hospitalizations and intensive outpatient levels of care with adolescents and adults. As a person of South Asian descent, I can relate to the immigrant experience as well as the experience of being the child of immigrants. I have a unique experience of cultural acceptance, diversity, and interracial relationships.
My Background and Approach
I approach counseling to help you cope and manage with the difficulties you may be experiencing first and then allow you to dig deeper into the 'whys'. It is important to me that you feel a sense of safety and control over your emotions as well as a comfort with me before we dig into the deep, emotional stuff.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe that people should feel comfortable, confident, and have a sense of belonging in their own community. I believes that the client is the expert on themselves and therefore approach counseling as a collaboration between myself and the client.
