My Approach to Helping

Are you an Asian, Pacific Islander or Filipino woman searching for a therapist who facilitates healing with humor, realness & love?

If you struggle with people pleasing, expressing your emotional needs and speaking your truth as a 1st or 2nd generation immigrant woman, you've come to the right place.

Maybe you want to build deeper relationships or branch out from family tradition to pursuit life goals aligned with your spirit.

Maybe you keep silent in favor of "keeping the peace" or make yourself smaller because you fear vulnerability.

Or maybe you experienced childhood abuse or sexual trauma and just want to feel safe again.

I can help you.

As your therapist, I will help you let go of self limiting beliefs & break cycles of generational trauma one boundary at a time.

Clients seek out my support to process childhood & life experiences that impact their adult relationships, work-life balance & parenting styles. My approach is integrative, trauma informed and cannabis friendly.

Walking along a healing path is challenging, especially if you were raised under traditional values that limit your growth as a woman.

If you know that there is a better way to live - in joy and in rest - contact me for a FREE consultation so that I can help you get there faster.

I look forward to meeting you.

More Info About My Practice

HOLISTIC & CULTURAL VALUES
My healing practice is founded in Indigenous Filipino Psychology and Western Transpersonal + Integral modalities that value the mind-body-spirit connection. I utilize interventions inspired by Depth Psychology (shadow work + inner child healing) + Psychodynamic & Attachment Theory (relational and family work) and a commitment to Social Justice (decolonization).


TRAUMA INFORMED
Healing from trauma looks differently for everyone. While talking about how we have been impacted by horrific experiences can be helpful, trauma survivors often lack basic regulation skills and depth of insight to cope with everyday triggers. A trauma informed approach recognizes that establishing safety within the body is key to healing from emotional, physical and spiritual trauma.


CANNABIS FRIENDLY
Cannabis medicine has many benefits for people struggling with depression, anxiety, insomnia and chronic pain. Although cannabis use might not be the best coping strategy for everyone dealing with mental health issues, I am a cannabis-friendly practitioner who can work with you on finding a way to integrate cannabis medicine into your healing practice.
