Though working as a psychologist and psychotherapist is central to her work, she is extremely passionate about mental health awareness. Aiming to create the distinction between mental health and mental illness, she is guided by a philosophy that We all have mental health, which aims to normalise the range of negative experiences in individuals. She is equally vehement in promoting the cause of supervision and self-therapy amongst psychotherapists as crucial ingredients to ethical practice of the psychotherapeutic profession, a feature currently unregulated in India. She likes to works with children and young people, and adults up to the age of 30 years.
As a researcher, she derives inspiration from her clinical work to inspect pertinent areas which she comes across in her consulting room, specifically school mental health, the impact of technology and social media on psychological development, gender and sexuality specifically amongst adolescents and concerns of the differently-abled. She believes that many goals of education in children overlap with goals of optimal psychological development, and hopes to collaborate with educators, parents and other mental health professionals in exploring this endeavour. Grief psychology and grief counselling is another area that she writes about and continues to explore through her clinical work. She wishes to continue pursuing training for contemporary forms of psychotherapy along with pursuing training in trauma work.
She enjoys writing on mental health, alongside reading. She also loves doodling and considers regular exercise as a crucial ingredient to her own mental health.
