I am a Registered Dance/Movement Therapist and Mental Health Counsellor, licensed by the American Dance Therapy Association (ADTA). My personal journey with the therapeutic effects of movement and the arts started during my own tryst with anxiety and depression. As an 18-year-old I was abruptly met with overwhelm, paranoia and anxiety. Verbal therapy, dance, writing and art gave me the necessary tools to heal. I quickly became curious about the impact of dance and the other arts on the body and mind. This curiosity led me to Chicago, USA for a MA in Dance/Movement Therapy & Counselling. Upon receiving my license to practice I moved back to India to share my experience and knowledge in the field of mental health and psychotherapy.
I strongly believe that my role as a therapist is to simply guide my clients to uncover that which they already know. And to eventually help empower them to further their own independent healing journey. In my practice I use the body and movement as an assessment and intervention tool to further emotional expression, communication, self-confidence, social integration and healing. I work with children, adolescents and adults who have a variety of mental health challenges such as depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, and special needs.
