As a therapist, my goal is to create a space where people can enact the change they desire for themselves, their relationships, and the lives they live. In our world, we are bombarded with messages that tell us that we “should” be this way or that way. We hear messages that tell us what parts of our identities are welcomed and what parts are shunned and “should” be hidden from others. I view the therapy room as an exception to the ways we have become accustomed to living our lives. It is place where people are valued for simply being who they are, where they can exist authentically, with respect and compassion, and without judgment.
I’m a Filipino American, bisexual, cisgender, able-bodied woman. I’ve received extensive clinical training in working with historically underserved communities. I've also counseled clients who have experienced sexual assault; conducted intensive, home-based therapy to multi-stressed families; and provided medical family therapy to patients at a hospital.
I’ll work with individuals, couples, or families from any community and/or background. I welcome any experience or struggle that brings you into therapy. As long as you’re committed to doing the work, I am too! As your therapist, it would be a privilege to bear witness to your story and work alongside you as you find ways to exist authentically in our world.
