Life is not picture perfect, regardless of what our social media posts display. Behind the scenes, we may feel judged to share the imperfections life may bring. We experience challenging transitions and changes that can be overwhelming to navigate. It can be difficult to understand the many expectations that may be placed on us. “Who am I?, Where do I belong?, Where am I headed?” are some questions that might have cross your mind.
I value creating a non-judgmental, empathetic, and collaborative space for you to feel welcome and for your story to be heard. I am passionate about working with young adults experiencing transitional changes brought on by college or career choices. I have experiences working with college students and adults struggling to balance life expectations and finding their identities. I believe that it is important to incorporate personal values, strengths, culture, religion, and sexuality into understanding your worldview.
I have been previously trained in dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). I find it important to be flexible according to your needs. Additional approaches to therapy I may use include cognitive behavioral, humanistic, relational cultural, and mindfulness perspectives. I speak Urdu and Hindi can provide services in either.
As a doctoral level student, I work under the supervision of a Licensed Psychologist. I have a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of St. Thomas and am working towards my Doctorate of Psychology.
