My work experience as a therapist has given me the opportunity to work with diverse populations that include a wide range of issues. I have worked with clients struggling with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, grief and loss, recognizing and recovering from psychological abuse as well as other relationship struggles and life transitions. I use evidence based treatment and I am constantly expanding my knowledge of ways to help clients resolve past issues and lead more satisfying lives. Mental health concerns can impact any of us in our daily lives and present unexpected hurdles.

Life is HARD and what's even more hard is that sometimes we get stuck in the HARD. My hope is that by you and I working together, you will grow the capacity to speak your story out loud and feel less alone in your pain. I work to create a non-judgmental, honest, steady and kind space for us to explore your life together. I believe it is my job to follow your lead in regards to timing, subject matter and intensity. My ultimate goal is for healing for your most authentic self as you experience being grounded in compassion for yourself while we make a plan to help you be what you desire most.

You're here for a reason. Something in your life is presenting a challenge and you're looking for help finding your way through it. Perhaps you've tried to manage on your own, and it's not working -- or not as well as you'd like. You could use a new perspective, a new approach, a way to see through the fog.

**Please note: I am not currently taking on new clients** Are you feeling 'stuck,' disconnected, or having troubles with stressors in your life? When we're feeling disconnected to those around us it challenges the way we think about ourselves and our world. I invite you, your children, or your whole family to come and reconnect with yourself and/or those around you. Together we can create a peaceful, judgment-free space to explore your thoughts and experiences at your own pace and in your own way.

As a systemic therapist, I believe in the exploration of all cultural and societal messages, norms, and values that have shaped my clients into who they are today. Making the brave decision to begin therapy is often preceded by many obstacles and challenges, and it is important to me to take the necessary time to walk through clients' stories and reflect on their experiences. I work to create a safe, trusting, and open environment where my clients and I can exchange constructive feedback. I believe that the therapy room is a space for emotional vulnerability, reflection, and growth.

I help people 45 and over who are feeling a sense of panic or urgency to FINALLY live authentically and purposefully. Who feel disillusioned and discontent about where their life is now and where they'd like to be. Who feel stuck in the gap between doing what they're "used to" or think they "should" do, to taking the courageous leap into the life they've been craving. Who dare to live boldly, but lack the energy, motivation, direction and support to carry it through. If depression, shame , guilt and confusion have become familiar companions, it's NOT TOO LATE!

Activism is a huge part of the work I bring to the therapy room. In trauma and healing work, I bring my direct experiences of anti-oppression, feminist, and social justice frameworks to clients. I understand that I am not excused from doing work to dismantle systems of oppression, due to the privileges from my intersectional identities as a college-educated, cisgendered, Filipina woman of color. Trauma and healing work require an alignment and connection to one’s body, mind, spiritual values and practices, and I see this as an extension of my involvement in activism, anti-oppression, and social justice work.

Being able to stand back from one's self and gain perspective about one's personality, choices and actions are important in helping an individual work through issues.
