I also work with the LGBTQ + population, completing the WPATH training to provide letters of support for HRT therapies and surgeries.
I am a Filipino American Therapist, who is not Filipino enough to be acknowledged by my own family as Filipino due to being born in America; and I'm not American enough to be acknowledged by Americans due to not being white. This identification and acknowledgment in my life have provided me a unique perspective and opportunity to help those I work with to manage the conditioned beliefs of perfectionism, and toxic family dynamics, religious traumas and heal from the experienced childhood trauma. I provide culturally sensitive therapy for Asian Americans who struggle with shame, guilt, and perfectionism to heal, grow and thrive.

By understanding sexuality, utilizing sex-positive counseling practices, and being an ally for the LGBTQIA + community in the therapy dynamic, I passionately advocate for vulnerable individuals to uphold dignity and value.
I believe healing is possible through an invitation to connect with your body, emotions, and thoughts. To build understanding about how your experiences, relationships, and culture have impacted your life. I seek to be a companion in the process of sharing your personal story as you sift through the well of your entire lived experience to discover your authentic voice. Together, we will use body based interventions, emotionally focused work, and brain-based approaches like EMDR to reclaim the chapters of your life where difficult experiences stole your sense of who you are, and nurture growth, healing, and overcome loneliness.

My areas of focus include the treatment of anxiety, depression, ADHD, ASD, and LGBTQ +/identity issues, as well as women struggling with motherhood or life transitions, and individuals facing parenting challenges.
My ideal client is anyone willing to come to counseling and be open to the process! Regardless of where a client may be starting from or what they’re hoping to accomplish, I believe that anyone who is willing to show up and engage in the therapeutic process can benefit, and I am happy to guide and support them on their journey. I believe I would be an especially good fit for those clients who want to learn more about themselves and the “why” behind their feelings, thoughts, and behaviors; hope to develop a deeper, more genuine connection with themselves and others; and can appreciate some gentle challenging when appropriate.

Making the decision to change is often difficult as there is comfort in holding onto old ways of thinking or patterns of behavior even when they are ineffective and no longer serve us well. My goal is to help guide you through the change or healing process. My therapeutic approach is supportive and collaborative. I work with adults and older adolescents with anxiety, depression, and mood disorders. I also have significant experience working with individuals experiencing life transitions, relationship/marital issues, stress management or coping skill difficulties, grief and loss, abuse and trauma, and substance use disorders.

Hello there! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Alcohol and other Drug Counselor. I specialize in working with teens (13+) and young(ish) adults who recognize that their current thought patterns, nervous system reactions, and other behaviors are wreaking havoc on their life. They know that something needs to change, and they want to gain a better understanding of why they think and behave in these unhelpful ways in the first place. My approach is to start with exploration of childhood experiences and family dynamics. These often shape the core beliefs we carry into adulthood about ourself, others, and the world.

When you feel that something in your life needs to change, getting started can be overwhelming. My desire is to help identify strengths and explore solutions in a safe, non-judgmental atmosphere. It is important to me that you feel free to share your feelings. I enjoy helping adults, couples, and teens cope with the normal yet at times painful transitions in life such as marriage, parenting, blending families, adolescence, divorce,empty nest, relational issues, and self-esteem struggles that plague people with histories of abuse (physical, sexual, or emotional).

One of my ideal clients would be identified as a Highly Sensitive Person by Elaine Aron, PhD. It can be difficult to know how best to guard your energy while still being available for the people and activities you love. Another client might share they would like to reach their fullest potential and would appreciate a trainer of sorts to do so. Someone else's needs might center around increased ability to maintain emotional stability, even when disagreeing with a loved one.

It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Warrenville?

When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
