Supervised by Sarah E Arnold, LPC-S

Hi! First, thank you for taking this step towards self-empowerment and healing. Please know that I recognize this can be a big, intimidating, step. My goal is to make this step you’re taking a little smaller and hopefully not as intimidating. So. You should know that I am not here to tell you what to do or how to live your life- you are the expert of your story!. As a counselor, I am someone who will reflect back to you your possibilities and more importantly the strengths you innately possess. In the therapy room, my aim is to provide a safe place, so that you come to realize the unique strength and power you hold. However, since each person is different, please let me know what a safe place might look like for you. In return you can expect humor, genuineness, and attentiveness from me. 

Now, while I hope to learn about you as well, a little about myself and my treatment methods. I grew up in Texas, however, my parents are from India- which basically means a lot of spices, colors, and heat. I received my B.A. from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor and my M.A. from Franciscan University. I enjoy long drives, too much Netflix, and rainy weather (don’t make it weird). 

I believe treatment is most effective when communicated with empathy and genuineness.  During the treatment process, you will be viewed as a physical, mental, and spiritual person. Therefore, I view counseling as a therapeutic relationship between you, who are here to take care of their mental health, and me, who will process and journey with you. To foster this relationship, I utilize a person-centered approach that draws from multiple modalities including cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and rational emotive behavior therapy. I have experience in treating anxiety, depression, adjustment difficulties, relationship conflict, attachment concerns, and more. 

I admire you for making it this far! If any of this resonates with you, please feel free to reach out so that we can start this healing journey together- it would be an honor to walk with you! I hope that as you continue forward on this counseling process, you find what you are looking for and most importantly a place you feel empowered and strengthened.
