I specialize in working with adults and adolescents who suffer from anxiety, low self esteem and perfectionism. Many individuals come to see me if they are struggling with codependency, have lost their identity and have difficulty setting boundaries in their relationships.
I have over 25 years experience in the mental health, counseling and psychotherapy fields, and since 1991, have worked as a psychotherapist in both the public and private sectors. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Arizona State University and my Master’s in Mental Health Counseling from Wright State University. I’ve been in private practice in Phoenix since 1999 working with individuals dealing with personal and family issues, relationship issues, and major life transitions, such as separation or divorce.
I have advanced training and experience in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and solution-focused techniques. I received training with Pia Mellody of The Meadows in the Post-Induction Training model (PIT) to treat codependency and childhood relational trauma. I have also been trained in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), which helps individuals clarify their values, set goals and take action toward a more fulfilling life.
I am originally from India and have lived in Phoenix since 1975. I respect people’s unique values and backgrounds and welcome diversity in my clients. I treat everyone equally and provide a supportive environment for individuals to show who they truly are. I find that when clients feel safe and supported, they tap into their own internal resources, recognize their strengths and begin to make changes that profoundly shift their personal and professional lives.
