An opportunity to learn & heal together. A space where you can truly feel seen & heard. I know what it feels like to live with emotional turmoil, uncertainty, and confusion- frustration at wanting to live up to your potential, but feeling stymied. Seeking out therapy is courageous & momentum-building, a step which demonstrates commitment to loving oneself. Change your life for the better! Through self-determination, nurturance & compassion. This work is transformative, integrating intuition & tools (mindfulness, somatics, trancework, CBT) for effectiveness, clarity & contentment. Sincere, playful, irreverent, but always respectful.

Mindfulness approach (Acceptance & Commitment Therapy) with body awareness (Somatic Experiencing), intrapersonal (Internal Family Systems) & transpersonal perspectives (Generative Trancework) for boundary-setting, speaking authentically, tolerating ambiguity, emotional recognition, recalibrating beliefs, self-compassion, value exploration, parts integration.

Expertise: anxiety; avoidance; perfectionism; creative obstacles; emotional upheaval; life transitions; interpersonal conflict; work-life balance; ego challenges; women's issues; search for meaning; sexual minorities (LGBTQA; BDSM; Poly). As a Filipino American, I am proud to serve FilAm & POC communities. Available Tues 10-11am, 3pm; Wed 2pm; Fri 10am-1pm.
