About My Clients

Maybe you are in a space right now where you feel stuck or in a spiral with your mental health and are wondering if there is hope for things to get better. Perhaps you have a vision of what your best life will look like but need a hand with getting from point A to point B. As someone who has sat in the client’s seat, I can understand the uncertainty that comes with taking this next step and the importance of having someone you can trust and feel safe with on your healing and wellness journey.

My Background and Approach

As a Therapist of Color and Filipina-American I understand the impact of intersectionality and the role various identities and cultures play in your life and how this can impact your mental health. I want to learn about you and how all these unique factors have come together to write your story and inspired you to take this next step into therapy. I want to understand your successes, challenges, and goals. I believe the therapeutic relationship is a teamwork process not only centered around unconditional positive regard and empathy but also empowerment and challenging you to move towards healing and meeting your goals. I use cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic therapeutic approaches with clients. I also utilize motivational interviewing and mindfulness techniques to promote self-growth. I invite you to reach out to schedule for a free phone consultation to see if I could be a good fit for you!
