Apart from Consulting and Psychotherapy, I have keen interest on spreading awareness on mental health, I wish to reduce stigma and silence related to mental illness, and make a safe space for all, so no one hesitate to seek out for help from professional. To achieve this goal I create digital content every week and post it on my YouTube Channel and Instagram Page and also voluntarily give talks and lectures on Mental Health topics in organizations, community centers, schools and colleges. I have been invited as speakers in more than 50 events in organisations like Bloomberg L.P., Synergy Marine Group, Prerana Foundation, J. J. Hospital (School of Nursing), St. Peter’s School, SNDT College, Gundecha Education Academy, Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies (NMIMS), Nirmala Niketan College, Jai Hind College, Sathaye College and many more.
