I completed my Bachelor in Physical Therapy from D.Y Patil College of Physiotherapy in 2010. I am a Certified Neurodevelopmental Therapist, C/NDT and Trained in Sensory Integration (University of Southern California). I am one of the founding members at The Gateway School of Mumbai and a Consultant and Mentor at The Pollyanna Practice.

Creating Home programmes to help children generalize skills and maintain therapeutic goals achieved during sessions 

Conducting therapy training programmes for Occupational and Physical Therapists, Mentoring interns 

Partnering with parents, schools and other health care professionals to help children meet their goals in the home, school and outside community.

In my 12 years of clinical practice, I have consulted at private clinics across various parts of the city like Enliven, Ika Childrens Centre, Evolve Polyclinic and Sneh Rehabilitation Centre. Besides possessing an experienced skill set in Neurodevelopment Treatment and Sensory Integration, I am also trained in Handwriting without Tears, Therapeutic Listening, Astronaut Training, Integrated Listening Systems and Play Therapy. 

I am a firm believer of using a variety of therapeutic techniques to help children meet their therapeutic goals. I find value in partnering with parents and working closely with the family and school to help a child achieve their goals. I also believe that therapeutic goals for children must be functional and purposeful and must be generalized in the home, school and outside communities. I believe in a multidisciplinary approach and working in a team is one of my strengths

In my freetime, I enjoy watching movies, hiking and traveling.
