Therapy is a space that is both engaging and supportive. I aim to create a welcoming environment where you can access therapy as a means to enrich your life. I come from a unique cultural background, being half Salvadorian and half Filipino, a first-generation child of immigrant parents, and part of the LGBTQ+ community. These diverse cultural influences have significantly shaped my personal identity and professional development. This journey of straddling multiple cultures has taught me the richness of our intersectional identities and how we all engage with the world through a complex web of lived experiences.

Hi! My name is Melissa and I was born and raised in the Bay Area by parents who were immigrants from Vietnam. My greatest strength I can share with you is my understanding of the importance of cultural identities and navigating against systems that may clash with your values. I believe change happens when we are ready to step out of our comfort zones and in my approach, I aim to balance challenge with compassion. I’ve spent the last 5 years guiding clients towards healing, acceptance, and self-compassion while they battled with challenges such as anxiety, depression, interpersonal difficulties, and/or trauma.
