Nervous System Therapist
& Coach for Deep Thinkers,
dreamers, pattern seekers,
I help busy, successful, deep thinkers and feelers powerfully connect the dots of their own life and that of others through nervous system regulation, trauma healing and power wound transformation so that they can experience authenticity and deeper connection in the boardroom, bedroom and in parenthood.
This is my story
Here are some things that are not surprising at all about me. I am a First-generation British-Asian, born and raised in India and educated and worked in the US. Went to BITS Pilani, then Masters in Computer Science, and then have executive certifications from UPenn and Entrepreneurship experiences at MIT/Harvard.
This is box standard and bare minimum for someone like me, who grew up with a very strong value system around education and achievement, the immigrant dream and being the model minority. At 33, I “had it all” - a supportive , also very successful partner who worked in investment banking, the house, the car , the two kids. I was a strategy consultant, regularly rubbing shoulders with the C-suite of global Fortune 500 companies.
Now for the part you don't know about me
The real, authentic me, that always knew that there was a life beyond meeting imposed expectations. While I achieved most things I set my heart to, the truth is that I still felt like something was missing in my life. My life felt mechanical, and somehow empty (despite the fact that I had it all).
When I became pregnant, things started changing for me. I kept on dreaming of what family life would be like, but I was also afraid of how I would be as a parent for my kids. The vision of my imaginary future kids sitting on a therapist’s couch and detailing all the ways in which my parenting had screwed them up, was too much to take. I did what I knew best, being a geek with a never ending appetite for lifelong learning, I started my quest to unlearn everything I knew about bonding and attachment.
Everything I had seen, heard, read about, or was explicitly taught was now up for debate. By facing my fears, I started on this deep quest - what I thought was initially to get over my fear of a natural birth (I did have two beautiful births as a result) shook me and took me on a transformative path to find my own truth, and I became a somatic experiencing practitioner with specific focus on attachment and power wounds.
When I went back to work after my births, my former life did not align with the “me” that I had met during my home birth - fearless, raw, authentic and vulnerable. I felt the need to fundamentally break intergenerational trauma patterns so I could show up differently for my daughters.
To do that, I had to “meet” my body. I learnt everything I could about our bodies - specifically our nervous systems, our fascia our bones, muscles - not as anatomical parts but this complex, interconnected and inextricably linked systems.
This took me on an incredible journey to find passion, profits and purpose - and that they are not mutually exclusive, I learnt that one of the most powerful tools we have to find systemic change in this post-pandemic, late-stage capitalistic world is to find our own authenticity at work and in personal life.
So I created my own paradigm shifts, to re-imagine coaching, bringing together nervous system regulation, power wounds transformation and trauma healing.
