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.

I created The Relationship Model of Addiction, a new paradigm for understanding addiction and recovery. Addiction is viewed as a relationship (not a disease), with a means of relief of pain from unmet emotional needs. Recovery is seen as a three-stage transitional journey out of unhealthy relationships and into healthy ones: Stage I – Breaking-up; Stage II – Developing the Relationship with Self; Stage III – Creating Emotionally Nourishing Relationships.The over-arching theme in all of the work I do is to empower the transformation of relationships by developing the relationship with Self.

You might be grappling with grief, stress, relationship troubles, or a separation and the aftermath of loss. Maybe you're an adult who was once a neglected or traumatized kid, trying to have close relationships. Or you're a teacher with intense perfectionism, an artist whose self-criticism blocks creative projects, or an athlete plateauing in sport. Maybe you're a therapist struggling to navigate her personal history and clinical work, or a white person wanting to address racism and privilege. Coping mechanisms like food, alcohol, exercise, are your "game face," but you wish you could let people know the real you.

I listen for the strengths each person has for meeting challenges, and listen also for the ways clients create losses for themselves. Within a warm, caring, reliable working relationship clients have the opportunity to more deeply value themselves and to grow interpersonally.

How did you decide it was time to look for a therapist? It’s usually emotional pain - anxiety, sadness/depression, grief, relationship problems - that brings you here. And addressing the source of that pain is the start of our journey. We’d begin with a 15/20 minute phone call where you lay out what you’re dealing with and I give you some sense of how we would begin to tackle it. Most therapists offer this and it’s a really solid way to feel into whether you want to work with someone. I have seen over and over that the pain that brings someone to therapy - if you work with it - is actually a gift.

Out of Network Therapists
An out-of-network Therapist in Berkeley has not agreed to any set rate with your insurer. Your plan may require higher co-pays, deductibles and co-insurance for out-of-network care and you may need to pay the difference between your insurer's allowed amount and what the Therapist charges.

The costs for a Berkeley out-of-network Therapist also depend on your type of plan:

In a Health Maintenance Organization, or HMO, or Exclusive Provider Network, or EPO, you generally have to pay the full cost of any out-of-network care.

In a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) or Point-of-Service (POS) plan, you will usually have to pay a higher deductible and or a higher co-pay plus a higher percentage co-insurance plus, the difference between the allowed amount and your provider's actual rate.

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
