About My Clients
I believe that seeking therapy is a sign of strength and self-awareness. My goal is to create an empowering space to lift you up through difficult times. As an Asian-American woman, I'm passionate about making mental health services available to all communities; you deserve to be heard. Whether you're working through past traumas or current struggles, we'll work to discover the tools you need to heal and live authentically.
My Background and Approach
I have helped clients from diverse backgrounds with challenges like anxiety, depression, grief, life transitions, sexuality and racial identity concerns, and relational struggles. I empower my adolescent, young adult, and adult clients to take ownership of their growth process, which is why I predominantly have a person-centered approach. However, I also integrate a range of therapeutic techniques, including CBT, gestalt, and existential therapy, to create a personalized therapy experience for you. I also love creative expression, so we can tap into that world in our sessions too!
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
As a first-generation American from the Philippines, it was challenging to feel safe with my emotions, which stemmed from cultural and social norms. My aim as a therapist is to assure you that wherever your story and experiences have brought you, you deserve to feel safe and heard. Together, we'll explore the root causes of your struggles to gain a new perspective on your present and empower you to live authentically. Life can be chaotic, but I'm here to support you on this journey as we share some laughs, probably some tears, and ultimately, learn how to connect better.
