Philosophy

I strive to bring a touch of comfort by offering healing in a variety of situations for individuals, couples and families. Coming from my Indian background, I offer a unique outlook in the approach and methods to bring healing to those who see it.


Being an ordained minister in the Indian Orthodox Church for over three decades has enhanced my spiritual outlook to help create an atmosphere of mutual care in the therapeutic endeavor. My goal is to bring healing to the brokenness and to empower those who are feel powerless.

I earned a Masters of Art degree in English Language and Literature from Sardar Patel University in India before coming to the United States in 1975. I pursued my education earning a Masters of Theology from Southern Methodist University (SMU) and obtained Counseling Proficiency through the Clinical Residency in Pastoral Psychotherapy at The Center. Besides holding the Licensed Professional Counseling (LPC) and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapy (LMFT) licenses, I'm honored to be a Fellow in the American Association of Pastoral Counselors.
