I enjoy working with diverse populations and find that I am able to easily build rapport with most who seek out therapy.

My Therapy Style

My overall therapy style is eclectic. I find that people are diverse individuals who need an individualized approach. While Cognitive Behavioral Therapy underlies my therapeutic model, I often add Mindfulness as well as Positive Psychology tools. I also find that Solutions-Focused Brief Therapy is also a very successful approach for many people. Oftentimes, people lose sight of their strengths and when exploring together, they find that they have more resources than they realize.

I have spent a lot of time traveling the world and have spent significant time in India as well as the Middle East (Afghanistan). I incorporate Yoga and Breathwork methodologies when appropriate.

Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I initially became inspired to become a therapist from the work of Erich Fromm and M. Scott Peck.

What are your interests outside of work?

The outdoors, rock climbing, hiking, backpacking, yoga, spirituality, learning Bengali (language), diet, and nutrition.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

Meditation.

What book have you read more than once?

The Art of Loving by Erich Fromm. I find it a continually fascinating read. I seem to find something new in it each time I read it.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

Braj Animal Care because there are a lot of street animals in India that are not cared for and I value that they take them in, provide care and rehab, and then release them back into their habitat when appropriate.

How do you recharge?

Spirituality, nature, and time with family and friends.

Do you have any pets?

I have a dog named Kaya. She's just a crazy ball of energy!
