Do you move between culturally different worlds on a regular basis? Perhaps you feel that you don't completely fit in, that your identity is mixed or "in between," and you long to say what you've never before dared to say? Maybe you missed a warm, nurturing upbringing because you were taught to focus on achievement at the expense of emotional needs. Is this a legacy you wish to accept for yourself or your children? As the American-born child of Filipino immigrants, these issues resonate deeply with me, and I can help if you feel stuck between opposing cultural values.

Do you find yourself repeating the same self-destructive behavior over and over? Do you find it difficult to find compassion for yourself or others? Do you find that instead of comforting yourself, you judge yourself for the way that you're feeling? Therapy can help you understand the unconscious dynamics at play and pull you out of your repetitive patterns. Finding a therapist who feels like the "right fit" is one of the most important aspects of a successful therapy. I provide a safe, confidential, non-judgmental space that welcomes all aspects of you and your experience.

Therapy is an opportunity for getting support when we recognize that the old ways of coping with challenging life situations are no longer working. You may feel that seeking professional help is the last resort. In fact, it is the most important step. In my practice, I provide a warm and collaborative environment to support clients in making positive changes to live healthier, happier, and more productive lives. I see adults, adolescents, and couples with a wide variety of issues and concerns including depression, anxiety, PTSD, childhood trauma, relationship difficulties, sexual issues, anger management, and substance abuse.

I believe that coming to therapy is about making a home in ourselves: a home where we feel at ease, where all the different parts of us are okay and we don't feel that something is wrong with who we are. When life gets hard we can feel isolated and cutoff - from the people around us, and also from ourselves. When we most need to feel compassion towards ourselves it can be hardest to find. My work is to help you find that compassion for yourself and to support you in strengthening your capacity to meet whatever life brings with courage and confidence.

People often begin therapy because they are in a crisis or in emotional pain and need relief from their suffering. While difficult, it is often the catalyst that opens the door to creative life force and new possibilities in living in the world. Psychotherapy is a deeply personal, individualized, alchemical process. I serve clients in the areas of trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), relationship issues, anxiety, addictions and self-development. I assist clients in not only getting relief from their suffering but also enhancing their personal and spiritual lives and having healthier relationships with themselves and others.

Therapy offers an opportunity to slow down and get to know what is really going on inside and to learn to listen to your body's natural wisdom.

Humans are pack animals. We depend on our relationships to survive. So, when we are deprived of the love and care of supportive relationships, we find ways to meet these needs in their absence. These strategies help us minimize our pain allowing us to survive childhood and navigate adulthood. Now you are finding that these survival strategies are becoming problems of their own. Do you struggle with letting your guard down, even for the people you love? Is it difficult to put your needs over the needs of others? Have you developed habits of avoiding "feeling" and find that you are disconnected from the world around you?

My background is in Health Psychology but these days I consider myself a Wellness Coach. I offer helpful conversations to those looking to make a positive change in their life. I specialize in working with Young to Mid-career Professionals who are navigating important life transitions including career decisions, romantic relationships, friendships, or adjusting to parenthood. Often individuals present questions on how they can feel more fulfilled in life, or how to grow in confidence, or become more grounded in themselves. Many look to find ways to improve work-life balance, or increase their ability to manage stress.

To be honest, you probably don't actually NEED therapy. Things are going pretty well for the most part. You're slaying at work. You have fulfilling friendships. You're getting comfortable outside of your comfort zone. When you feel sad or anxious, your coping skills are pretty solid. And still . . . You want to level up. You're going through a life change, which you know will make you happy soon, but currently feels like being hit by a truck of mixed emotions. You want a fresh perspective on your relationship. You wonder about your doubts, your dreams, and the beautiful messes that make you you. And I'm so glad!

A fully expressed life emerges when we connect with our innate resilience and become who we are meant to be. We have more energy, feel inspired, connect more deeply, and experience the natural ebb and flow of life with greater ease. Whether you have done psychotherapy before, or are brand new, I am here to help. I offer a beautiful, unique approach to healing, one that brings together teachings from Western psychology and Eastern wisdom traditions. Complete healing comes from mindful awareness of the whole self, and working from a place of embodied connection with our true, genuine essence.

I specialize in helping women recognize & amplify inner resources to recover from trauma, anxiety, and depression while attending to the important relationships in their lives. I inherently operate personally and professionally with a social justice lens which means that therapy cannot be separated from familial, societal, and religious conditioning we experience as unique beings on this planet.

Teletherapy (Online Therapy, Virtual Therapists) Therapists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Berkeley, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Berkeley listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Berkeley are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Berkeley

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Berkeley you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Berkeley and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Berkeley or family therapy in Berkeley.
