Therapy is a space where you can safely process and discuss thoughts, issues, or questions that have been consuming your emotional health and well-being. It is your time and your space. You do not have to be in a crisis to seek therapy. While the therapeutic process can be groundbreaking and beneficial, I want clients to feel safe from harm, discrimination and aggression while acknowledging how systemic inequities play a role on one's mental health. There are many factors and complexities that intersect to make you who you are. You define who you are and how you experience the world.
My name is Carla and I am an LCSW in California with over 14 years of experience working as a medical social worker and psychotherapist. I worked in schools, community mental health agencies and hospitals, and am fluent in Tagalog. As a Filipina/Malaysian therapist, I will look at all the systems in place that impact your emotional health and well-being.
I firmly believe in starting where the client is and that you are the captain of your own ship. I am just here to help guide the way. The answers are within you and I will do my best to help you get them out. You've made it this far. Protect your peace. Now let's get to work.
