Do you move between culturally different worlds on a regular basis? Perhaps you feel that you don't completely fit in, that your identity is mixed or "in between," and you long to say what you've never before dared to say? Maybe you missed a warm, nurturing upbringing because you were taught to focus on achievement at the expense of emotional needs. Is this a legacy you wish to accept for yourself or your children? As the American-born child of Filipino immigrants, these issues resonate deeply with me, and I can help if you feel stuck between opposing cultural values.
Depression and anxiety are often rooted in early emotional memories, and the pain of remembering rejection, fear, or traumatic events might keep you from understanding that present-day challenges are linked to earlier experiences. I can help you stop repeating patterns of the past by moving toward new, healthier choices.
I am an Asian American therapist of color, and I'd love to help you! I invite you to visit my website by clicking the button on this page. If you want to take it further, give me a call.

Eileen Drapiza-Dornan's Groups

Asian Americans - Invisible No More

As an Asian American, who are you really? Do you live in the hyphen between cultures, neither 100% this, not 100% that? Explore the self and desires you've kept suppressed as a result of a lifetime of honoring your elder's wishes or caring for others at the expense of self. Find support and encouragement to take healthy risks in a welcoming space. Come gather and share your stories, share your dreams, be reflected, feel connected. We meet two Saturdays mornings a month in Downtown Berkeley. Suggested donation $20-$50.
