“If you want to go fast; go alone, but if you want to go far; go together.” – African Proverb

Asking for help to start the journey towards self-improvement can come with many fears. I offer the opportunity to walk with you while you navigate hardships in life and challenge you to not have to travel the road alone. I value a collaborative process that focuses on your needs in a safe space mixed with humor and hard conversations to offer you the tools that can help you heal and change.

I approach therapy from a trauma and culturally informed perspective interwoven with multicultural feminist and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. In addition, I’m currently pursuing certification in Somatic Experiencing Therapy to help clients work through trauma responses (e.g., flight, fight, freeze, and fawn) who may not respond to traditional talk therapy methods. Somatic Experiencing Therapy (SE) includes the use of body movement, tracking sensations, and recognizing nervous system shifts in response to body activation/deactivation. Through the focal awareness of bodily sensation, individuals can access restorative physiological action patterns. This allows the highly aroused survival energies to be safely and gradually neutralized. For prospective clients, more information can be found here.

Additionally, I specialize in working with adolescents, emerging adults, and adult populations. I also see families who are hoping to find ways to best support someone struggling with mental health and assist them in how to approach hard conversations from a process oriented and solution-based approach. I strive to include individual cultural aspects to better understand how communication styles and dynamics are influenced between family members. My areas of interest include trauma and recovery, grief and loss, racial/ethnic identity issues, gender identity, and social justice and advocacy. As a South-Asian woman, I offer unique insight into Muslim and Asian cultures. I also offer services in Urdu/Hindi. Lastly, to whomever comes across my page, come as you are, without knowing where to start or how to get to where you desire. Together, we will find a clearer path.
