Taking the step to get counseling takes a lot of courage. You are already on your way to reach your desired goals. I believe that everyone faces their own challenges and has their own unique experience, but you don't have to go through it on our own. It is my job to guide you in your journey to reach health and happiness. I work with adults, elders, and adolescents ages 12-17 with anxiety, depression, sexual trauma, and grief and loss. I also have special insights with people who are marginalized ( BIPOC , LGBT+, Women etc.).

Feeling bad is often the result of less than nurturing relationships & experiences. Anxiety & depression can make you feel imprisoned in your body. Family & culture can dictate how safe, or not safe, it is to express & be yourself. My experience as a Filipino American allows me a deeper connection with people who are navigating challenging life transitions & relating to different cultures & new relationships. I work to empower individuals within the context of systemic injustices & complications. I provide compassion & wisdom so that you can feel fully alive & authentic in your body, your world & in your relationships.

Are you tired of facing your problems alone, yet feeling uncertain about discussing them with a stranger? Are you feeling trapped in your anxious and depressive thoughts, but feeling too embarrassed to talk, but also too desperate NOT to? For most people, finding a therapist IS very anxiety provoking. They are afraid of being judged and of the unknown. So allow me to first applaud your courage and wisdom for taking action! To help my clients feel accepted and motivated, my approach is warm, casual, and collaborative. My focus is always on emphasizing the strengths, NOT on what "disorders" you might have.

However, you can also begin to experience extreme sadness or irritability, lacking interest in your new baby, increased issues and arguments with your partner, even struggling with returning to work or embracing your new role as a stay at home mom or dad. If you find that you are generally unhappy or you are experiencing more intense symptoms, it is important to know that you are not alone, this is treatable and there is help available for you.

In my 15 of years providing therapy, I have worked with various individuals experiencing different life challenges. The goal is to create a connection and from that connection build a bridge to healing and recovery. I believe that we are all seeking radical acceptance and radical belonging. Systemic oppression significantly impacts mental and physical wellness. I strongly believe it is not that a person needs to be "fixed". Marginalized and oppressed folx need support, space, agency, and tools to navigate an increasingly hostile and toxic environment.

¡Hola! My name is Yessica (pronouns: she/her/hers). As part of the Latinx community, I know finding the balance amidst our current world can be overwhelming, frustrating, and at times disheartening. As therapy and emotional health are still stigmatized in many cultures, human rights, and social justice at the forefront, the need to care for our emotional and mental health increases. I strive to aid individuals, children, and families navigate these uncertain times.

“You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.” - C.S. Lewis. Many times, people begin to think about therapy because they never imagined they'd be where they are right now. My goal as a therapist is not to change or de-value anything about the past, but to assist you in figuring out where to go from here, and how to get there.

Often times, a crisis occurs when a client experiences a duality between his or her inner world and the external environment in which he or she lives in. This client may be going through a life transition related to loss of a loved one, job loss, aging, or even changes in health conditions. He or she may even be struggling internally to make a decision more aligned with their authentic selves such as gender, unconventional relationships, and vocational interests. The goal for this client is to achieve quality of life and fulfillment without denying himself or herself of his or her true identity and human condition.
