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.

Thank you for visiting me. I know preparing yourself to find a therapist that you feel comfortable with and someone you can trust is not easy.

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.

I work with individuals who want to overcome persistent behaviors, thoughts and emotions that inhibit their ability to live a life they love so that they have meaningful relationships, deeply fulfilling work and self-confidence. My approach is based on the belief that in order to benefit from therapy the therapeutic relationship must be grounded in direct communication, collaboration and compassion. You need someone to be real who will both challenge and care for you. My patients often reflect they are relieved to finally work with someone who engages in conversation and shares responsibility for the progress of each session.

The decision to work on oneself is not something I take lightly. Healing is a sacred path, but not easy. I welcome clients as they are and hope to become while offering a warm and peaceful presence that is active yet non-invasive. My clients are as diverse as the issues and different parts of themselves that emerge. Symptomatic states of being tell a story of a unique legacy of neurobiolgical and attachment wiring. Developing safety, mindful awareness, and self-compassion, I help my clients find meaning, hope, and the freedom to become who they were meant to be.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist with many years of experience working with children, adolescents, and their families, as well as adults. My interventions are heavily rooted in behavioral therapy and evidence-based practices including feminist and attachment theories. However, I tend to conceptualize clinical presentations from a multicultural and social justice perspective. While I employ empirically validated treatments to ignite change, I am also of the belief that there is no single story to any individual. Consequently, it is important to understand the social, cultural, political, and spiritual context of each individual.
