I’m here to support you in building an abundant private practice.

Together, we can help you design and manifest the private practice of your dreams through building community, not competition!

In her own words:

“Born and raised in India on a steady diet of eye-opening paradoxes, faith, Chai and conversations that seamlessly switch languages, I bring a richly multicultural perspective to my work as a therapist, counselor-educator, business owner and community builder.

I am a child of India whose professional identity has been shaped by a Western education. Almost two decades of cross-cultural experiences in living, studying and working on two continents have nurtured my flexibility, curiosity and creativity as a therapist.

I also believe that a dedicated mindfulness practice, as well as a thoughtful self-inquiry practice allow me to be a compassionate, authentic and nurturing presence in the lives of others. Nothing is more important to me than building community with others – and this website is one more for me to build community with YOU!
