"Born and brought up in India left me feeling controlled by my destiny. Moving to America at 22, and living an Immigrant success story left me feeling empty inside. I quit my corporate job and the lifestyle that came with it at 35, in search of a more fulfilling life.
I started my private practice as a certified Life Coach (Coaches Training Institute) in 2006 for individuals and in groups. Soon I was integrating Eastern Philosophy and Practices, Expressive Arts techniques, Entrepreneurial Leadership & Management expertise, and skills acquired from my life experience to Co-Active Coaching Principles.

My work deepened through my personal journey of helping my Mother handle her intense mental health issues and facing my inner demons as a consequence of that. I came to be known as a Holistic Coach, as I drew upon the best of east and west, arts and science, business and spirituality - ancient and modern, traditional and experimental. I made my work accessible to the women and queer community by running free year-long expressive arts programs for Self Healing & Growth.

My life and hence my work transcended to a higher level as I immersed myself for 18 years Personal and Relational Energy Study. I picked up new perspectives, tools, and techniques that I use every day to help myself, my clients and my students to create and live a life of choice.

My work demands that I hold myself accountable to be my personal best as a human being and lead a life worthy of myself. My work allows me to add to the wisdom, beauty, and magic that I seek and share. My work is how I live my life. And my life is my testimony.


I invite you to utilize my work."
