BIPOC - Have you experienced loss or adjusting to change? Life comes with loss and change: the death of a loved one, the loss of health, a break-up. Dealing with any loss and adjusting to major change often negatively affects us, and our emotional well-being and coping habits are sometimes compromised as a result. It is easy to fall into depression or develop anxiety if our coping is not managed and nurtured appropriately. I’m glad you are taking steps to process what change or loss means to you. As an Asian American Filipina, I provide culturally competent therapy services to those managing dual/multi cultural/BIPOC identities.

Since 2020, even the most resilient have found themselves facing disorientation, high emotions and internal conflict causing them to seek out therapy for the first time. I have experience helping high achieving, overthinking adults who may feel isolated, lonely, or disconnected to themselves, to others and to life and want change but don't know how or where to start. Clients who need a reflective, highly supportive and direct approach have found value in working with me.

One of the strongest choices you can make is to ask for help when you really need it. Connecting with an objective, non-judgmental person can help you from feeling stuck as you find answers to questions like: How do I deal with a complicated relationship? What is my true calling? How do I navigate my way through anxiety, stress, depression and addiction? Why do I keep making the same old choices? What do I need to do to feel better? Therapy is a profound step in creating the clarity you're seeking to lead a more stable, sustainable life.

Ditch Shame, Reclaim Authenticity! I help people who struggle with low self worth start to value themselves. My clients struggle like you do. Despite being great at their careers, supportive of those they love and able to handle what gets thrown at them, life is challenging. When they first come in, they are very hard on themselves, feeling helpless and even experiencing moments of self-hatred. When they take a moment to sit with themselves they often feel disappointed, ashamed and embarrassed.

After years of satisfying work as a business lawyer, I found my way to therapy through my volunteer work as a chaplain at Los Angeles County Men’s Central Jail. It was through counseling individual inmates and facilitating groups in the jail that I began reaching people at a deeper level, seeing their unique qualities, and learning to appreciate the value of a strong therapeutic relationship in someone’s life. After receiving a master’s degree in clinical psychology at Antioch University, I trained at the Southern California Counseling Center, a leading nonprofit mental health agency.

What type of Los Angeles mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Los Angeles?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
