About Me

© Copyright 2015-2017, Wellness Around The World, LLC


Wellness Around The World, LLC is an expression of my purpose and passion in life.  As a psychotherapist, life and executive coach, speaker, and workshop facilitator, I'm dedicated to helping people around the world live happier and meaningful lives.  Whether it is supporting  someone through  an adversity, providing them with tools they need, or helping them embrace their dreams and live a life that is in alignment with their purpose, every moment that I spend with my clients  is an absolute privilege.

We are on this planet for a brief period of time, and I believe in the importance of making peace with the past, learning how to enjoy and savor the present and taking steps today towards a future that is calling out to us.

My background and credentials are provided to the right but a little bit about myself. I have been passionate about helping people to live happier lives since I was a child.  I have utilized tools from a variety of disciplines and practices to maintain my own well-being and am committed to continuous improvement. Aside from my professional background, I'm also a singer, performing artist, writer, passionate journal writer and photographer.  I'm an avid traveler and love to learn about the wisdom of cultures from around the world.  I am Indian-American and feel blessed to have been raised in America and also exposed to my roots in India. I consider myself a global citizen, and dedicated to helping those around me in any part of the world, in any way that I can.  I hope you enjoy exploring this site which is continuously evolving on its own journey of growth.
