Choosing Psychology as my major in college was a decision that came very easily since I was always inclined towards helping others.
My journey in this field was further enriched when I completed my Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology. Over the years, I’ve attended many workshops and training programs to keep abreast and updated with the newest approaches and therapies.
The recent most feathers in my cap are completing the Advanced Practicum in RE-CBT (Rational Emotive-Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) from the Albert Ellis Institute (AEI), New York, USA and the Advanced-Applied training in RE-CBT with children and adolescents from the same institute.
Experience and Approach
When deciding on a therapist, it is especially important to feel a connection with the one you choose. My approach is caring, warm, and collaborative.
I work with families, couples, children, adolescents and adults who are anxious or depressed about relationships, family or work settings, or major life transitions. Sometimes, changes in sleep and appetite or a feeling that ‘something is not right’ is reason enough for people to take an appointment with me. I create a safe and supportive environment in which you can talk about your situation without fear. Together, we work to help you cope with the struggles that interfere with your goals, relationships, and overall sense of well-being.
In addition to my private practice at Doctor Centre in Kemps Corner, I have had the fulfilling experience of being a counsellor at a reputed South Mumbai school for many years where I looked into the emotional, social and academic development of children from ages 3 to 16.
A little bit about me on the personal front…
Happily married with two wonderful girls, my family holds prime importance in my life and I strive to strike a balance between work and home.
Being the ‘cautious’ type, I love being challenged by my husband to try new adventures on our travels.
Mindfulness is a practice that has helped me immensely in my progress professionally and personally. I enjoy listening to music and get to hear the ‘trendy’ stuff from my girls. I love singing as well, it’s literally therapy for my soul.
Curling up with a book at the end of the day is the best way for me to relax.
