Embrace your most


Specializing in helping women embrace their authentic selves.

Hello, I'm Shanaz

(she/her/hers), pronounced: shah-nawz

I’m a second-generation South Asian American, social justice advocate, and licensed professional counselor/board certified. I’m also a wife, fierce mama, and Texas therapist serving BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ populations. 

I’m here to help break some generational chains, barriers, and anything holding you back from being your most authentic self.

My practice focuses on the unique needs of individuals who struggle with depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem and are wanting help to alleviate the discomfort.
