Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays
My clients describe me as:
warm, empathic, and at ease. Clients feel celebrated in their strengths and held in their moments of vulnerability, all while cracking a joke or two.
Something to know about my approach is:
I work from the inside out: learning to slow down, listen to your body's intuition, allow your heart to experience your emotions, become aware of your triggers and unhealthy behavior patterns so you can learn to live with and love your imperfections.
Together, we will:
unpack and process any past trauma (childhood, intergenerational, racial), learn coping strategies for the present and how to set healthy boundaries, improve relationship with yourself and with others, prevent burnout, gain self-compassion/acceptance
I specialize in working with people who:
cycle-breakers (breaking away from trauma), perfectionists, highly sensitive people, AAPI, Latinx, immigrant families, LGBTQIA+ with loud Inner Critics and a wounded Inner Child
I became a therapist because:
I have experienced firsthand the mental health needs and lack of representation/support for AAPI and Latinx youth and adults.
Something that stands out about where I offer therapy is:
I am flexible - either telehealth or in-person at our cozy and beautiful office. Either way, I strive to create a safe and comfortable space for you.
More about me and my practice:
As a Filipino-American therapist of color, I am culturally responsive to my clients' points of intersectionality. I am Attachment and strengths-based, and pull from somatics and other theories in order to meet my clients' unique needs.
