Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Seattle, WA


About My Clients

One-on-one teletherapy for adults (ages 18+) from a strengths-based, trauma-informed, person-focused, narrative perspective.

My Background and Approach

I am a licensed clinical social worker in Washington state and received my Masters of Social Work (MSW) at the University of Washington in Seattle. My social work training incorporates the influence of society, community and personal support systems on the individual experience. I use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), mindfulness and solution-focused techniques to help you accomplish your goals. Imagine our time together as a space dedicated to your growth, where you plant the seeds. I can help you find the tools to make these seeds grow. Even through Telehealth video conversations, I hope to create rapport with clients through compassion and being fully present. Therapy is a form of self-love, a time to explore feelings that may be preventing you from living your full potential. Therapy takes time, energy and vulnerability. If you are ready to share, I am ready to listen.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

With over 10 years in the healthcare field, I have experience supporting individuals struggling with grief/loss, chronic illnesses, anxiety, depression and trauma. I identify as a first generation Filipina American and am deeply passionate about de-stigmatizing mental health in the Filipinx American community. We often get so caught up in the hustle and bustle of life, it can be difficult to stop and reflect on ourselves. Calla Lily Counseling is a dedicated space to pause and reflect. A non-judgemental space. An open space. An intentional space. YOUR space. It is a space for change, a space for healing, a space to find meaning. Now is the time to invest in your mental health.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
