COACHING IN PARENTING NEURODIVERSE CHILDREN

I am a certified couples counselor and a speech language pathologist. My counseling focus is couples where one or both partners feel that they do not have a "common language" in their relationship. I specialize in working with couples who have trouble with empathy, understanding the other persons perspective, reading social cues, and high anxiety.

I am also the founder of the Speech Dysphagia Language Clinic (SDLC), a leading private speech and occupational therapy center in Mumbai, India. Learn more about my background.
