Announcement icon During these unpredictable times, I offer TeleTherapy to help navigate the range of emotions that may arise. Wishing you health & wellness.
I believe everyone has power to heal. Let me help you regain clarity and joy, while striving towards individual and collective resilience. I love working with individuals & couples who are wanting to feel grounded in a sense of happiness and purpose! Perhaps you're experiencing activism burn-out, relationship difficulties, or family stress? Are you Asian or Filipino/x American and wanting support navigating cultural expectations? Maybe you want to love yourself better, or overcome intergenerational family issues? I respect and honor the journey you're on, and value the courage it takes to make this step in working with a therapist!
Have you ever thought, "a part of me wants to...or afraid to..."? I welcome ALL the parts of you. I work from a collaborative approach that is social justice & culturally informed. What that looks like is exploring your history, welcoming feedback, and creating a tailored therapy experience centering your wellness plan. COVID-Safe Space via Online-telehealth
Throughout our work together, I welcome feedback and encourage openness about our process. We may talk about difficult topics or try-on new practices; so while therapy may be challenging at times, I hope to create a safe space of that will allow you to feel empowered, motived to engage intentionally, and express emotions authentically.
