I identify as a social justice driven clinician, first-generation immigrant, Pinxy/Filipinx-Japanese American, Bakla/Queer. My experiences as a marginalized person inform how I show up with you. In seeking to be in a healing relationship with me, I strive to be curious, collaborative, and compassionate.
I center my practice on relationships; relationships with friends, family, culture, and one’s self. Change can be challenging and you are not alone in pursuing the changes you want for you and for your relationships. I know what it’s like not to speak ‘the language’ or speak the language ‘correctly.’ I know how it feels to have the words you speak not feel like your own. In our work together, we will find your language, enabling you to better relate to others, as well as to yourself.
