My experience with Self Compassion work is how it offers a beautiful balance of self care and other care. It works with letting go of self criticism and shame just as much as with the need to be perfect and special.

Although originally from India, I have lived and worked in the US for over 30 years. I am a psychology professional and a mindfulness teacher along with teaching MSC. I have taught Self Compassion in the US for most part and also to a group of international students from all over the world, including all Indian students. Currently I am bi-continental, toggling between India and the US, teaching in both places. Because of coming from a technical background (Ph.D. in Computer Information Systems from UCLA) and then switching to Psychology (MS in Clinical Social Work) with emphasis on Mindfulness (Vipassana background from India), I feel very comfortable working with students from various backgrounds. I also see how a balance between head and the heart from the teacher nourishes students growth. To know more about my work, please refer to my website


I teach both in India and the US, including online sessions to International students. These days my home country in India. My US number is +1 310 308 9531.
