As a therapist, I have experience counseling primarily adults and some adolescents dealing with depression, bipolar disorder, abuse, trauma, schizophrenia, relationship issues, anxiety and substance abuse issues. My therapeutic approach is eclectic, and the techniques are adapted to meet each individual client’s needs.
I am a licensed professional counselor in Michigan. I have a master’s degree in counseling psychology from University of Missouri and a second master’s in psychology from University of Madras, India. I am also certified as a trauma professional (Clinical Certified Trauma Professional). I have over 11 years experience working with people with mental illness, both in the community and in an outpatient setting.
Being exposed to different cultures has given me has given me greater understanding on its impact and more sensitive to people. I believe a caring, empathic and trusting therapeutic relationship can help clients let go of their fears and reach their goals. I’m here to assist you in working on your present to shape your future.
