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.

With great courage and a sense of curiosity, you’ve already taken the hardest step towards feeling better—reaching out for help. Maybe you’ve been feeling "stuck" or overwhelmed? Perhaps you and your significant other find it difficult to communicate each other's feelings and needs. Or maybe you're trying to make sense of a life experience and don’t know where to start. I would like to reassure you, you don’t have to endure the pain or confusion alone. We, as humans, have all experienced moment(s) in life where we feel disconnected from our true selves and even our loved ones. Sometimes we just need some support along the way.

We live in a culture that is constantly pushing us to strive for perfection. Whether in school, work, or our everyday lives, the need to constantly achieve can put great strain on our self and those we care about. This can lead to chronic depression or anxiety, social isolation, feelings of inadequacy, or even thoughts of suicide. It is hard to break out of this culture. It is hard to find flexibility of thought and a space to feel like we are good enough. Yet, through compassionate acceptance and practical skill building I can help.

My practice focus includes treating children, teens, and families as well as adult individuals facing complicated emotional and behavioral conditions. How I work depends upon the circumstances bringing you to a psychotherapist as different problems and situations need different approaches. Every therapy is unique even if there are preferred methods and practices for treating anxiety, depression, and others. Each treatment is foremost a relationship. This often takes time to build, which may be a challenge when limited by schedules, insurance benefits, or circumstances. My goal is that psychotherapy is effective in addressing change in thinking and behavior, and that you find it helpful.

I am a cognitive-behavioral therapist and family systems practitioner, and I work particularly well with adolescents, young adults, professionals, and open-minded individuals looking for evidence based solutions. I employ humor, authenticity, and self-disclosure to build rapport with my clients, so anybody who is open to this approach would do well with me. I utilize pragmatic approaches to address specific problems in a timely manner. However, I am also aware that there is no "one size fits all" approach, and clients who otherwise have similar symptoms may respond drastically differently to therapeutic approaches.

Always my treatment goal is to facilitate the improvement in the quality of life for each individual and to look for the creative aspect within the destruction. Healing is a natural process, but sometimes it is difficult to remember that fact.
