I am a LMFT in Los Angeles who specializes in intersectionality, trauma, first-generation Americans, LGBTQIA+, and BIPOC clients.

Having grown up the middle daughter of South Asian immigrants on the East Coast, I understand the struggle of straddling two cultures—East and West—and the feeling like you’re living a “double life.” Along my own path of healing from childhood trauma, I became an inclusive trauma therapist to help other 1st-generation, LGBTQ+, and POC folks heal from similar intercultural, intergenerational trauma too.

I have a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology with a specialization in Trauma Studies from Antioch University-LA. My counseling specialties include: Trauma and intersectionality, LGBTQIA+ and POC/BIPOC folks, first-generation Americans, and relationships—i.e. open/consensual non-monogamy (CNM) as well as narcissistic abuse recovery.
