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.

Living a life that feels true to ourselves may take additional support and understanding. Sometimes life becomes overwhelming, either because we are faced with trauma, loss, illness and other transitions, or because we are experiencing unexplained feelings that are keeping us in a stuck place. I would like to work together with you to help you better understand yourself and create the changes that you want to see in your life. My style is relational and authentic. I want you to feel supported and better able to become who you want to be. I use mindfulness and CBT when helpful.

I work with people who are suffering and are looking to better understand why they feel the way they do. My clients are open to exploring the role that internal unconscious forces, as well the role that the social environment, play in how they experience themselves and others. Long term psychotherapy is not only beneficial for dealing with suffering. Once a person has made progress with the primary life concerns, room is created for expansive growth, including the attainment of goals, and I believe that it is equally important to go through this process accompanied.

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 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.

Since 1989, I have been helping people uncover, explore, and work through barriers to authenticity and aliveness. Together, we bring into awareness the thoughts and feelings that can interfere with being more fully engaged with yourself or others. You may feel that you don't know yourself or can't be yourself; that decisions are difficult to make or impossible to follow through on; or that connections with others are empty or unsatisfying. Taking a closer look at what's getting in the way can make a difference.

I provide skilled therapeutic support through video talk therapy and EMDR to help you find your way and increase much needed flexibility.

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.
