I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate and hold a Master’s degree in Counseling specializing in Marriage and Family Therapy from San Diego State University. As an immigrant, I faced various life changes, societal and social pressures which affected my mental health; therefore, I have first hand experience dealing with life transitions, cultural identity issues, and navigating trauma. Additionally, I have worked with immigrant families navigating cultural adjustments, parenting, and strengthening family bonds. I am bilingual in English and Tagalog, and can conduct therapy services in both languages. I am also passionate in advocating for accessible high quality mental health care especially in Asian American communities in order to combat mental health stigma. Outside of my therapist role, I love being in nature (walking, hiking, kayaking), practicing yoga, mindfulness meditation, cuddling with my dogs, trying new cuisines, and traveling to new places.
