Maya is a licensed master social worker, emerging researcher, and doctoral candidate at Tulane University. She identifies as South Asian and is multilingual.
Maya offers teletherapy, which allows people to get mental health treatment from home or any other private space.
As a neuroscience-informed, compassion-focused psychotherapist, Maya combines a variety of psychodynamic and mind-body modalities that promote mind, brain, and body regulation.
She is well versed in "third-wave" cognitive-behavioral therapies such as compassion-focused therapy (CFT), mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), as well as mentalization-based therapy (MBT), and attachment-based therapy.
She works with emerging adults, college and graduate students experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship issues, and difficulties adjusting to life stressors.
Maya's psychotherapy core beliefs are twofold. First, compassion and respect are the basis of positive therapy experiences. Second, the personal connection and safeness established in the therapeutic relationship are catalysts for lasting change.
In partnership with patients, therapeutic care is informed by continuous learning and integrates the most recent research.
Maya is interested in research and scholarship in epilepsy health disparities and compassion-focused interventions for individuals experiencing psychological distress.
Maya works under the supervision of David Comisar LCSW-R, PLLC Psychotherapy Group.
