Psychotherapist in Gaithersburg, MD

About My Clients

My ideal client: 1) wants to or is curious about connecting to their racial, cultural, and or ethnic roots outside of white supremacy and the patriarchy, 2) is open to talking about the impact of systemic oppression, 3) appreciates exploring their relationship to nature and spirituality, the metaphysical and mysterious, 4) open to my relaxed, conversational, and sometimes humorous therapeutic approach (as opposed to a highly structured approach with exercises and homework).

My Background and Approach

My background is in working with clients who have survived intimate partner violence, and childhood abuse and neglect. I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP-I) and Certified Brainspotting Practitioner, which helps inform the work I do to support survivors of complex trauma. I received my Masters in Social Work at The Catholic University of America. I am also trained in Reiki and Hilot.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I identify as a progressive, including around issues that affect Filipinos in the Philippines. I value the abolitionist-informed and anti-oppressive positions of mutual aid, community care, and decentralization of services over policing. I incorporate the work of Tricia Hersey of The Nap Ministry and Sonya Renee Taylor in my personal and professional life to unlearn the harms of grind culture, ableism, the patriarchy, and white supremacy. As someone who experiences chronic illness, I also value disability justice. I center humor, pleasure, and boundaries to help me and my clients connect more deeply with our intuition.
