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.

I enjoy working with people who have been successful in their fields and yet have come to an impasse in how they think of themselves in terms of self esteem and self respect. The people I work with often question the significance of their lives and how loved they are by friends and family. These doubts often have their origin in their birth families and can be helped by an in-depth understanding of their role in their families.

With great courage and a sense of curiosity, you’ve already taken the hardest step towards feeling better—reaching out for help. Maybe you’ve been feeling "stuck" or overwhelmed? Perhaps you and your significant other find it difficult to communicate each other's feelings and needs. Or maybe you're trying to make sense of a life experience and don’t know where to start. I would like to reassure you, you don’t have to endure the pain or confusion alone. We, as humans, have all experienced moment(s) in life where we feel disconnected from our true selves and even our loved ones. Sometimes we just need some support along the way.

Are you tired of struggling with self-doubt, irritation and anxiety at work and in relationships? You‘ve tried to make sense of it, but the change you seek is not happening on your own. You may already have a supportive community and a self care toolbox, but it’s been hard to keep it together lately and you're ready for deep and lasting change. Maybe you’ve been to therapy before and know it’s time to return before it gets worse. And this time, you’d like a therapist who is warm, supportive and insightful but also firm, productive and directive, and is skilled in working with social and cultural differences.

We live in a culture that is constantly pushing us to strive for perfection. Whether in school, work, or our everyday lives, the need to constantly achieve can put great strain on our self and those we care about. This can lead to chronic depression or anxiety, social isolation, feelings of inadequacy, or even thoughts of suicide. It is hard to break out of this culture. It is hard to find flexibility of thought and a space to feel like we are good enough. Yet, through compassionate acceptance and practical skill building I can help.

Rejection Hurts. Miscommunication leads to misunderstandings and hurt feelings, feeling disrespected and taking things personally. • Are you ‘filling in the blanks’ with your own assumptions? • Do feelings of rejection turn into self-blaming, shaming and self-rejection? • Is resentment growing in your work or personal relationships, barely leaving room for connection or intimacy? And if you are ADHD, you likely already know how rejection sensitivity affects you. • How much will you benefit from practicing respectfully direct communication and effective checking-out skills? • Let's tap into and enhance your resilience!

We face so many pressures about who we should be and how we should live our lives. Sometimes we end up hiding parts of ourselves or conforming to belong. And we lose touch with who we truly are and what makes us feel alive. This disconnection to our truth can lead to feeling depressed, anxious, lonely, or not good enough. Imagine what it would be like to feel whole and accepted for all of your beautiful complexity. Therapy can be a non-judgmental space for you to reflect and explore what matters most to you. I can support you in healing old wounds and transforming patterns that lead us to feel stuck, overwhelmed, or depleted.
