I am a licensed professional counselor with work experience in mental health hospitals and individual counseling organizations offering services to address individuals’ issues on traumatic grief, self- harm behaviors, depression, and addictive behaviors to various drugs and alcohol. I have experience in working with individuals with mood disorders, eating disorders, substance use disorders, schizophrenic disorders, and personality disorders. As counselor I support to build the individual’s self-esteem and courage for the present and vision and hope for the future. With my previous career roles as an executive officer and a design engineer, I can attest to how careers also can play an immense part in the reconstruction of the personality of a person, boosting their self-esteem along with altruism, insight, and strong mental resolute.
As a professional, I am able to practice scientific and evidence-based interventions and motivational interviewing using integrative approach of Existential Theory, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy. I am currently pursuing a doctoral degree in care and community with emphasis in traumatology to serve individuals better using scientific clinical interventions and competent treatment to achieve the best possible outcome for recovery, healing, and motivation.
My husband and I have been married for 25 years and have two children. Our son graduated from Texas A&M with a degree in computer science and currently works for Capital One as a data engineer. Our daughter is currently pursuing a master’s degree in Physician Assistant Studies from UT Southwestern Medical Center. My husband and I have both attended Stonebriar Community Church for the last sixteen years and are actively involved in ministries to encourage community and growth. I enjoy reading books, admire nature and astronomy, and love to travel.
I am fluent in English and Tamil (my native language), and am comfortable providing counseling in both languages.
