Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Psychotherapy for children, adults, and couples

About Me

I received my master’s degree in Counseling Psychology with a concentration in Expressive Arts Therapy from the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) in San Francisco, CA.  My background also includes training in Somatic Experiencing, Brainspotting, The Gottman and Developmental Models of Couples Therapy, Gestalt therapy, Sandtray therapy, and Play therapy.  I weave western psychological orientations with eastern spiritual thought as a foundation to provide holistic psychotherapy. 

My personal experiences of immigration enhance my sensitivity to address issues related to assimilation, integration, cultural identity and multi-racial relationships.  

Through my previous careers in small-scale manufacturing units and large corporations in Silicon Valley, I have gained an appreciation for the rewards and demands of working in the hi-tech industry of the San Francisco Bay Area.

I am multi-lingual and provide therapy in English and Hindi.
