My Therapeutic Philosophy

I believe that everyone has a unique story, and therapy is a collaborative process where we work together to uncover and enhance these stories. In our sessions, we will explore the narratives that shape your experiences and find ways to rewrite them in a manner that aligns with your values and aspirations.

My approach is centered on creating a warm, empathetic, and non-judgmental space where you feel heard and understood. I aim to empower you to reclaim your narrative and find the strengths and possibilities within your story.

Language Capabilities

Effective communication is crucial in therapy, and I am fluent in both Bengali and English. This bilingual proficiency allows me to connect with clients in their preferred language, ensuring that cultural nuances and personal expressions are fully understood and respected. Whether you feel more comfortable speaking in Bengali or English, I am here to support you in the language that feels right for you.
