I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW). I have five years of community mental health experience in homeless services.

Clinical Social Worker in Seattle, WA


About My Clients

I enjoy working with queer people of color, especially queer-identified Asian Pacific-Islander folks.I also have a particular interest in working with those in the helping professions such as essential workers, therapists, and those who identify as community organizers/activists. I identify as an 1st generation, bi-racial, woman of color. As a first generation Filipina, I have a unique experience regarding power, privilege and oppression from a non-Westernized perspective.

My Background and Approach

I believe that therapy, change, and healing all occur on spectrums. There is no “one size fits” all approach to this work, and that is the beauty of the therapeutic relationship. It’s an alliance and a partnership that can adapt and change based on the current support you need. I see therapy as an extension of my commitment to activism; it’s an opportunity to collaborate around examining, dismantling, and healing some of the damage caused by oppressive systems. As your therapist, I will learn with and alongside you in real time about what that means for your healing journey, honoring your inner wisdom, while supporting you with offerings of relevant ideas, experiences, and skills.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I don’t consider myself a very traditional therapist. I work very collaboratively with my clients, bringing my authentic self into the room while letting my clients take the lead in their lives. I work really actively with clients to facilitate a co-created healing space that allows for all aspects of a client’s identity and experience. I understand that trauma, pain, fear, and stagnation are stored and experienced in the body. Therefore, I support my clients in healing and creating a greater alignment with their authentic selves and life dreams by developing awareness of and strengthening their connection to what’s happening in their bodies and minds. For me, this is the essence of somatic work. I also support my clients with integrating their spiritual beliefs, values, and practices where applicable. In my work with clients, I integrate my anti-oppression, feminist, and social justice frameworks into this work.
