Therapy for South Asians in New York

Many South Asian people in New York City and beyond are hesitant to seek mental health support, even when they need it the most. Some of the common contributing factors causing this include:

  • Family politics and dynamics

  • Social stigma

  • Religious beliefs

  • Experience with medical racism

  • Weaponized cultural traditions and values


However, the mind and the body are both part of the same system. One can affect the other in multiple ways. That’s why it’s as important to pay attention to your mental health as it is to be mindful of your physical health.
We have therapists specializing in the issues facing South Asian individuals. Our team can help South Asian individuals with common problems they might be facing, including:

  • Relationship challenges

  • Interreligious issues

  • Gender bias

  • Sexuality and gender issues

  • Interracial relationships

  • Third culture issues

  • Work and career concerns

  • And more
