About Me

Salāmun ʿAlaykum!

I’m an associate marriage and family therapist. I graduated from Santa Clara University with a Master’s in Counseling Psychology and I completed my Bachelor’s in Psychology from Rutgers university in New Jersey.

I like to utilize a relational approach to help clients discover their inner strengths and resilience. I also believe in the family systems theory, as every individual is a part of the family unit. My previous experience has taught me to provide a safe space for clients to explore the challenges that elementary students experience as well as the survivors of domestic abuse face in their daily lives. I have also helped clients with trauma and self esteem issues. 

I was born and raised in India and I have a deep understanding of the cultural nuances that play a key role in therapy. In my free time I love reading, writing, cooking and spending time with her friends. I also volunteer in the community, whenever there is an opportunity.
