Personal Statement

I am a Malayalee Indian and am passionate about breaking the stigma surrounding mental health for South Asians. I have first hand experience in navigating intercultural/interracial relationships and identity formation. I understand the difficulty of navigating between cultures and am enthusiastic about supporting others through their challenges.

Who I Serve

I work with adolescents, adults, and couples. I have experience in a variety of healthcare settings where I supported patients and their families with PTSD, traumatic brain injury, and dementia. I have also worked in a community mental health setting where I worked one on one with domestic violence survivors and supported them on their journey to healing. I understand the importance of empathy and patience in supporting clients as they share their stories. I strive to make my counseling room a safe space for all.

Theoretical Approach

My theoretical approach begins by building a strong therapeutic rapport with my client before engaging in trauma work. Once that has been established, I incorporate strategies from CBT, DBT, and strengths-based modalities. These modalities seek to analyze our thoughts and behaviors in order to understand how they impact us in the present. The strengths-based approach seeks to identify areas of growth and progress in order to assist us with the current challenges we face.
