My Approach to Helping
I believe that personal growth and healing can be made possible through a supportive and trusting therapeutic relationship and in a safe and non-judgmental environment. It is my intention to listen from the heart and understand my clients on multiple levels, including culture, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and age. I am a firm believer that you are the expert on your life, and I work with a collaborative treatment approach that integrates your inner wisdom and my professional knowledge and experience to help you discover how to live a life that is rich and meaningful.
My clinical areas of practice include, but are not limited to: depression and anxiety, diversity and intersectionality, relationships, self-esteem, spirituality, and life transitions. I also have significant expertise working with individuals who identify as AAPI, Filipinx American, and/or LGBTQ+. I work from a client-centered perspective that informs my integration of cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic, and strength-focused interventions to meet the unique needs of each individual.
My goal as a therapist is to help clients develop a solid sense of self, which will enable them to openly connect with themselves and others from a place of authenticity, confidence, and self-respect. I look forward to working with you to manifest your ideal vision for your life.
