Starting therapy can be a difficult and uncomfortable process. When seeking help, it is important for you to know that you are not alone on this journey. Together, we will create a safe place where we can explore your concerns with compassion, understanding and curiosity.
A large part of my work is to cultivate and honor your innate wisdom. Whether you are experiencing struggles with your personal or professional life, such as relationship issues, work concerns or past childhood trauma, I am passionate to help you face your concerns so that you can find relief and healing.
When working with people, I use a variety of modalities such as mindfulness meditation, somatic inquiry, guided-imagery, and various expressive arts. I often provide tools and reframes to build emotional resources. Sometimes I work with people briefly, where we focus on a specific issue. And sometimes the work is more in-depth, where people are looking to create significant life changes.
I am fluent in Hindi, Bengali and English. I appreciate the significance cultural heritage has in shaping us, and the way we experience the world. I strive to create a space of acceptance for people having different cultural values and lifestyle choices.
I warmly invite you to visit my website, so that you can learn more about my work and me to help you determine if we are a good match.
Thank you for your courage in seeking assistance on this journey. I look forward to hearing from you.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed
I often hear, how seeking therapy somehow implies, "you are messed up." I am saddened whenever I hear such statements. I won't deny this perspective doesn't exist, however I see and hear this perspective is shifting.
I believe no one is weak, flawed, broken or wrong. From the time you are born, you observe, listen and learn how to be in your environment. As an adult when you experience pain, despair, anxiety or fear - these are all signals from your wise self - deep within you, guiding you to the next stage in your journey. And therapy is one way of exploring and understanding what worked before, and what happened that it doesn't work as effectively now.
My experience as a person and a therapist has shown me, it take immense courage to follow your wisdom, face your fears, doubts and trepidations and engage in a therapeutic process towards change and growth. As you find support or you are considering finding support, it is important to remember, you don't have to do it alone.
