To seek therapy is courageous and momentum-building, a step towards loving and trusting yourself fully. I know what it can feel like to live with emotional turmoil, uncertainty, and confusion. Sometimes it all feels upside-down. Frustrated by wanting to live up to your potential, but feeling stymied? Unlock and transform your hero's journey! My approach is a creative collaboration - with compassion and curiosity. An invitation to transform and heal via 'wise mind,' where intuition and intellect overlap. Techniques: mindfulness-based cognitive-behaviorism, somatics, IFS, Neo-Ericksonian trance, shamanic-infused experiential journeys.
Mindfulness (Acceptance & Commitment Therapy) with body awareness (Somatic Experiencing), intrapersonal/parts integration (Internal Family Systems) & transpersonal perspectives (Trancework). Goals: set boundaries, speak authentically, hold ambiguity/embrace paradox, recognize emotions, shift beliefs, compassion for self, explore values, transcend polarities.
Expertise: anxiety; avoidance; perfectionism; creative blocks; emotional upheaval; life transitions; interpersonal conflict; work-life balance; ego challenges; women & POC issues; decolonized/reindigenized spirituality; search for meaning; sexual minorities (LGBTQ+; BDSM; Poly). As a Filipino American, I am proud to serve FilAm & BIPOC communities.
