Values & Philosophy

As a queer, transmasculine, neurodivergent, South Asian, and gender expansive individual, I understand the complex journey of self-knowing and aligning with one’s true self amidst societal pressures. My mission is to create a compassionate therapeutic environment where you can bravely explore your identities and move towards a deep sense of embodiment.

I see myself as a supportive guide, holding space for you to discover the depths of yourself. I seek to create an environment that nurtures courage, authenticity, and growth by connecting with your strengths. Each of us holds the keys to our own liberation; sometimes, we just need the right environment to tap into that power.

I believe in the power of collective healing and find inspiration in co-creating liberation within communities I belong to. I integrate practices such as tarot, astrology, divination, and reiki to offer holistic guidance on your path to self-discovery. By connecting with your highest self, profound transformation becomes possible.
