I’m a clinical art-focused trauma therapist, artist, educator and counselor. I use visual art and drama to facilitate meaningful, personal change in individuals and communities impacted by various kinds of trauma. I practice art therapy from a queer, intersectional feminist, trauma-informed, anti-caste, social-justice perspective. I see clients who are queer, marginalized and/or bicultural in India and in the US online and in-person.
I have a wide range of work experience in working with children with special needs in India, adults impacted by sexual violence in the US and couples/families impacted by various kinds of trauma across the world.
I specialize in offering Art Therapy, Sex Therapy & Restorative Justice oriented Conflict Coaching in India and the U.S., online & in-person, for individuals, couples, families and work teams, through a culturally sensitive lens. I’m working to help people embrace better relationships, and be more connected to their best sexual-emotional self.
I’m also known as the Indian Sex Therapist on social media.
I studied Mindfulness-oriented Art Therapy from an Indian Buddhist lens in Pune, India, and Social-justice oriented clinical Art Therapy and Counseling from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago . With multiple Masters degrees and clinical licensure in India and the United States, I aim to continuously improve my understanding of psychotherapy and serve people better.
I would love to hear from you about sessions, questions, workshops, training seminars or papers.
