Do you move between culturally different worlds on a regular basis? Perhaps you feel that you don't completely fit in, that your identity is mixed or "in between," and you long to say what you've never before dared to say? Maybe you missed a warm, nurturing upbringing because you were taught to focus on achievement at the expense of emotional needs. Is this a legacy you wish to accept for yourself or your children? As the American-born child of Filipino immigrants, these issues resonate deeply with me, and I can help if you feel stuck between opposing cultural values.

The decision to work on oneself is not something I take lightly. Healing is a sacred path, but not easy. I welcome clients as they are and hope to become while offering a warm and peaceful presence that is active yet non-invasive. My clients are as diverse as the issues and different parts of themselves that emerge. Symptomatic states of being tell a story of a unique legacy of neurobiolgical and attachment wiring. Developing safety, mindful awareness, and self-compassion, I help my clients find meaning, hope, and the freedom to become who they were meant to be.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist with many years of experience working with children, adolescents, and their families, as well as adults. My interventions are heavily rooted in behavioral therapy and evidence-based practices including feminist and attachment theories. However, I tend to conceptualize clinical presentations from a multicultural and social justice perspective. While I employ empirically validated treatments to ignite change, I am also of the belief that there is no single story to any individual. Consequently, it is important to understand the social, cultural, political, and spiritual context of each individual.

It isn't difficult to feel scared, unlovable, vulnerable and not good enough in "our world gone mad", let alone if you have a history of being abused or neglected. Therapy can help you slowly make sense of the past so that you can encounter the present moment with more awareness and vigor. I am psychotherapist with an abiding love of the arts and work with sensitive individuals, many of whom have histories of abuse/neglect and are struggling to make sense of their past and present lives in order to find a greater sense of freedom/comfort within their own skin.

I believe that psychotherapy is fundamentally about discovering a deeper sense of personal meaning, self-understanding, and self-acceptance. The therapy relationship can help to deepen understanding of thoughts and feelings, cultivate a reflective capacity that enriches connections with oneself and others, increase a sense of personal aliveness, and develop the tools we need to navigate life's many challenges. I work with those facing various difficulties and life transitions as well as those looking to enter a more exploratory therapy to enhance self understanding.
