Out of network with all plans
I enjoy working with young adults, adults, and the LGBTQIA+ community, and treat a variety of issues, including ADHD, anxiety, mood disorders, eating disorders, depression, gender identity, life transition/adjustment issues, and stress management. I am an International Transgender Care Therapist, a member of WPATH, and a sex-positive clinician. I am also passionate about working with BIPOC and the South Asian population.
My work with each client is unique and catered to who you are and what you need. I believe in building a relationship based on collaboration, mutual respect, and empathy. As a minority myself, I have experience helping clients work through processing cultural barriers and unfair treatment. I help clients with improving body image, increasing self-esteem, mood disorders, disordered eating, and identity challenges.
B.S. in Psychology at George Mason University

More About Me:
As a resident in counseling, I practice under the supervision of Casey Sarafinas, LPC. My past experience has been in an intensive outpatient setting, college campuses, and advocacy organizations. I love animals and watching funny animal videos. I like to dress my dog in cute outfits that he does not care for. I enjoy playing Mario Kart on the switch, watching Netflix shows and cooking new recipes.
