My Approach to Therapy:

My primary goal in working in mental health is to put myself out of a job. Given that each of us intrinsically know what we need to heal and grow, my approach to psychotherapy is to couple your expertise of being you – your reality and lived experiences – with my skillset, in order to collaboratively work towards achieving your goals. As a first-generation, queer, Filipinx-Jamaican American femme who grew up in a military family, I understand the importance of being seen in all of our intersecting identities, and the relief that comes when someone “just gets it”. Through a culturally-affirming and healing-centered stance, I utilize evidence-based treatments to facilitate our work. My primary therapeutic approach is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), which centers mindfulness; ACT allows us to foster compassion, bravery, and commitment to self in the service of living a full and enriched life, in spite of the discomfort, pain, and challenges which arise while trying to live it. I have also been extensively trained and supervised in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), and Prolonged Exposure (PE). Additionally, I am a certified Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) provider.
