I have over 15 years of experience providing assessments, consultation and psychotherapy for pregnant women, young children and their families around anxiety, depression, behavioral issues and trauma .
Becoming a parent is a unique and transformative experience. From the moment of conception through the journey of parenting there is an array of unknown rewards, challenges and experiences. At times parents have no idea how they will feel or react to these challenges and realize that they need help and support through their own journey as parents. Research proves the way we were parented, the environment in which we developed, and the situations around us influence the way we feel and behave as parents.

I’m a Filipino American, bisexual, cisgender, able-bodied woman.
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 work with many adult children of alcoholics, women aspiring to live fuller and balanced lives, partners healing from infidelity, clients struggling with social anxiety, and spouses whose partner is uninterested in couples therapy.
Quality psychotherapy can be life-altering, especially when one is motivated and open to the process necessary for change. I enjoy working with individuals who are looking to develop a more grounded sense of self; seeking meaning and direction in work and/or in personal relationships. Adults of all ages come to my practice to improve and enrich their relationships with partners, children, family members, friends and colleagues. Couples look to deepen their connection, learn new communication skills, and resolve and heal from repetitive conflicts so they can cultivate a resilient and joyful partnership with one another.

When a woman discovers her spouse is involved in sexually compulsive behaviors, she often feels as though the floor has fallen out from underneath her. It seems everything she thought she knew about her spouse and her life is suddenly a lie. She feels the deepest sense of betrayal, and wonders if she will ever trust again. Her world is falling apart and there is nothing to hold onto. She feels all alone and often does not tell another living soul about the horror she has been plunged into.

So many women find themselves in the same type of relationship over and over, and it is one where we are not valued, not treated nicely, but it's what we know. I have been there and would like to help other women recognized what is toxic, controlling, and develop the inner strength to leave that relationship, and improve self-confidence and learn to recognize a healthy relationship. I am starting a women's group on this subject on Aug. 12th. I also work with teens, men, couples and families, and am currently working with all.

I support women just like you who struggle with distress after a disturbing life event.
It still hurts so bad. Terrifying memories attack you day and night. You try but can’t seem to move past what happened. Life feels hopeless. You wonder if it’ll ever stop. The pain is impacting your relationships and your performance at work. Simple tasks feel overwhelming. The flashbacks make it impossible to concentrate. Constant anxiety is causing you to become more and more isolated. Recurring nightmares have made you afraid to fall asleep. No one understands. The thought of having to tell your story one more time makes you want to scream. It’s all so exhausting. You’re floating through life, and you know something must change.
