My Approach to Helping

I am here to help you process experiences, thoughts and emotions in a safe environment that acknowledges all aspects of your identity. My main counseling approaches are person-centered, trauma-informed and social justice-informed. I also incorporate motivational interviewing, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques to teach grounding and coping skills. I collaborate with clients on how to best approach their own process of healing by highlighting clients' resilience and personal strengths, and encouraging self-awareness and self-empowerment.

More Info About My Practice

I completed a master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and a certificate in Trauma-Informed Services at Portland State University. Prior to my graduate degree, I completed a bachelor's degree in Psychology with a minor in Women's Studies. I have experience working with individuals, particularly women and children, who have survived childhood abuse, intergenerational trauma, domestic violence and intimate partner violence, religious trauma, trauma associated with immigration and cultural assimilation, and on-going systemic and institutional trauma. I completed training in Basic Victim Advocacy and completed my graduate counseling internship working with survivors at the Domestic Violence Resource Center. I also completed training in suicide intervention and crisis management (ASIST) through Lines for Life, where I volunteered as a crisis line worker and answered calls for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, the Veterans Crisis Line, and Youthline.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

As a first generation immigrant from the Philippines, and as a woman of color, I became interested in counseling because I realized the need for more representation in this field. Growing up, it was a challenge finding a counselor who could acknowledge or understand my cultural backgrounds. I wanted to change this by becoming the therapist I needed when I was younger. I hope to encourage individuals, especially those from the margins, to seek help. I feel that each generation shows progress with de-stigmatizing mental health services. I named my practice Next Generation Counseling PDX because I want my generation and the next generation to know that trauma-informed and culturally-informed help is available.
