A little about me

My own story is full of unexpected surprises, bumps, bruises and empowering changes. Being a first-generation South Asian female, I followed an expected path of pursuing the doctor career. I graduated from medical school in 2009 and ticked all the boxes to complete a medical residency. I then explored my own trauma healing journey and decided to deviate from clinical medicine to specialize in relational and individual therapy. I deeply felt the need for more diverse and culturally informed clinicians to support minority communities.  I completed my Masters in Marriage and Family therapy from Northeastern Illinois University, gained experience working with various group practices and obtained my Illinois LMFT licensure. This final step allowed me to fulfill my goal of opening up my own private practice. Always remembering what led me to this incredible work, my desire is to provide holistic care one client at a time with hopes to reduce the stigma around seeking therapy.


More about me...

When I am not working, I love to decompress with my husband and two quirky kids.  Experiencing anything and everything, I am always looking for ways to embrace new adventures.  I moved from Georgia in 2014, but still can't say that I have gotten used to the cold weather.  I have fallen in love with the amazing experiences (and food!) that Chicago has to offer and it truly is one of the best cities in the world.  I am a book worm at heart and love getting cozy with a good book (recommendations welcome!).  I love all forms of creative expression, whether it be through art, music, or dance.
