My goal as a therapist is to cultivate a safe space for clients to explore their inner experiences with curiosity and lack of judgment. I work through a trauma informed lens, understanding the complex ways in which our lived experiences, as well as societal and systemic factors, shape our feelings, behaviors, self-concept, and the way we relate to others. As a biracial therapist (White/Filipina) who holds white privilege, I enjoy helping clients explore their racial identity and/or engage in ongoing anti-racism work. I also have experience working with clients who come to therapy to address harm and healing from race-based trauma.

As a psychotherapist with over 10 years of counseling experience in the Bay Area I have come to appreciate the importance of humor and honesty in developing a therapeutic relationship that encourages positive life changes. I work hard to develop a comfortable and safe space for my clients to identify and address barriers to progress in their personal and professional lives. When we are honest with ourselves, I think we so often find that our most ardent critic and obstacle to living a fulfilling and happy life is ourselves.

Are you looking for a therapist who understands the multicultural experience? Seeking a bilingual therapist? I specialize in working with multicultural individuals, couples, and families. Being of several cultures can leave us feeling like we belong to none. In relationships, cultural differences often come up in the ways we disagree or express anger, in our expectations around dating, and in what we find normal or not when raising kids. Navigating these challenges alone can feel discouraging and like no one really understands, but a culturally competent psychologist can help.

Let’s be honest: you’ve always been a responsible adult, and now you’ve got a lot to manage! Between a demanding career and family needs, you’re feeling stressed, and life feels out of balance. It’s impossible to do it all, and nothing ever seems good enough. You feel alone and worried, and your social network isn’t able to provide you with the support that you need. Perhaps your sleep is problematic, or your energy is low. Maybe you’re feeling anxious, depressed, irritable, or having difficulty concentrating. You might be troubled by feeling that you're an ineffective partner or parent. Things will get better soon, right?

Individuals often come to therapy because they are having difficulties in relationships, coping with work-related stress, or managing intense emotions related to past experiences. They may be dealing with anxiety, depression, stress, or substance use which they feel has become unmanageable. My aim as a therapist is to help you reconnect with your own strengths and empower you to overcome your challenges, to see things in a new way, or perhaps, to identify your goals and values. I view therapy as a very collaborative process in which we will work together to help you build the life you want to live.

Finding the right therapist can be a difficult task. I hope to make that easier by telling you about myself and my approach. I received my doctorate in Counseling Psychology, a branch of psychology that takes into account the role of various cultural and environmental factors that shape each of us. This means that my approach to therapy is individualized and integrates information about your unique circumstances with my training in several different evidence-based treatments. My goal is to provide a safe environment where you can learn new techniques to cope with stress, build a life you value, and process difficult emotions.

Life right now might feel difficult and grueling for many of us. The current state of the world may have opened up old traumas, anxieties, difficulties with depression, and relationship distress; or perhaps you are struggling with these challenges for the first time. Regardless, you are probably searching for a therapist because you are at a loss for how to cope with the wounds and demands of life that can so often feel overwhelming. I work with teens, adults, veterans, and monolingual Spanish-speakers and immigrants.

What type of San Carlos 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in San Carlos?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
