About My Clients

I work with individuals, couples, and teens affected by anxiety, stress and depressive symptoms that can lead to low self-esteem, isolation, and self-judgment. Striving for perfection and comparing yourself to others can be alienating, making you feel alone and not enough. Through the process of sharing your experience and inviting me to assist you through your therapeutic process together, we can shed the doubt and empower you towards love and self-acceptance.

My Background and Approach

Together we will increase your self awareness, allow space to slow down, support you in finding the best answers to life-changing questions. I believe & honor the individuality in my clients. I use an eclectic approach to support my clients, some approaches that I use are not limited to but include mindfulness, Expressive Arts, CBT and ACT. I provide a non-judgemental and supportive environment. My style is down-to-earth, warm, easy-going and playful; I strongly feel fun and laughter is vital in daily doses.  My goal is to create a secure and safe place, where we can start to build a collaborative therapeutic process in self-reflection and exploration. 

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Through my creative self-exploration and therapy I was able to embrace the beauty and challenges of being a girl, woman, partner, and mother; and accept my childhood and adolescent experiences as an American-Filipina.  I was born in the midwest from immigrant parents and lived most of my life in the bay area; as I matured, I found myself lost in different cultures as I struggled to form an identity of my own. I grew up looking different and feeling different.  Art, movement and mindfulness played a vital role in helping me to get in touch with my feelings and emotions, gain confidence, and self-acceptance.  It became essential for me to help others who also struggle to express themselves, gain self-understanding, to develop their own identities and help them to accept themselves just as they are.
