My Approach to Helping

I believe that healing can be the most transformative when we better understand the various parts of ourselves that make us who we are. I want to get to know you and your story and how it’s impacted your sense of wholeness. My goal is to work with you to build a warm, strength-based, and supportive environment to understand better the worry or fear that holds you back from achieving your goals.

Together we will explore experiences from your past and present, which provides an opportunity to get support, guidance and learn new coping methods by implementing solutions that you can use in your everyday life. As a second-generation Filipina American, I understand on a fundamental level how the complexities of race, cultural identity, and systemic oppression can shape one’s experiences, relationships, and overall mental wellness.

I hope to help you work towards the life you imagined with more joy and meaningful existence.
