My Approach to Helping

I am a Psychotherapist and Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 20 years experience in mental health. As a second generation Filipina-American, I provide therapy and psychoeducation to families incorporating multiple perspectives on racial and and cultural diversity.

I convey a nurturing presence in both inpatient and outpatient settings and believes the key element to successful therapy is the quality of relationship between client and therapist. I firmly believe the seeds of trust, mutual respect, and unconditional positive regard are the foundation of effective and satisfying therapy.

I am passionate about my work with older adults whereupon I ensures that my clients have self determination, compassion and respect. In my work within the perinatal community and the Bridges Maternal Child Health Network, I am dedicated to identifying mothers and families in need of emotional support and community resources.

I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from University of California at Santa Cruz and her Master of Social Work from San Diego State University.

My areas of specialty include Perinatal Loss, Infertility, Anxiety, Depression, Grief and Loss, Trauma, PTSD, Career Transitions, Postpartum Depression, Aging, Cancer, End of Life.

I am also a Field Instructor for MSW Interns with Cal State University, Long Beach.
