Personal Bio

For the past 30 years in my practice, I have utilized a combination of East and West treatment modalities due to my educational training in India and the USA. I assess my clients’ true potential and unique problems and assist them collaboratively. I view life as a journey and help my clients through compassion by creating a treatment plan to meet their distinct needs based on their strengths. Using a holistic treatment approach helps my clients cope with their day-to-day challenges. Besides Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Behavior Modification, I also use various treatment modalities, including Mindful Awareness, for which I received training from Dharamshala and various Indian Monasteries.

I enjoy working with individuals ages three and above with diverse backgrounds, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, economic status, nationality, and cultural values. Clients I have worked with have dealt with many issues such as anxiety, depression, Obsession, Compulsions, trauma, marital & divorce issues, problems with relationships, phobias, mood disorders, life transition, chronic medical management, psychosis/schizophrenia, Tourette syndrome, traumatic brain injuries, cardiovascular disorder, multiple sclerosis, disorders associated with the insult to the central nervous system, intellectual disabilities (previously called Mental Retardation) and many more to list here.

I am currently accepting new patients for therapy and assessment.

I earned my first Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Sardar Patel, India. I earned my second doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology (Health Psychology track with an emphasis on neuropsychology) from the University of Indianapolis. I also completed two years post-doctoral fellowship from the Department of Psychiatry, University of Iowa, emphasizing neuroimaging, neuroscience, and clinical neurobiology. I specialize in neuropsychological and psychological evaluation. I am particularly interested in memory and learning problems among patients with cardiovascular disorders and traumatic brain injuries. I have researched social cognition and motor function among patients with schizophrenia. I have presented my research findings at national and international professional conferences and published articles in many journals.
