About

Welcome! I am a Mexican-Filipina American therapist in Orange County, California. I primarily provide individual therapy to teens and young adults struggling with anxiety, relationship/family conflict, and self-esteem issues that present as people-pleasing, perfectionism, codependency, and caretaking at the expense of oneself.

I was raised in a home where mental health was never talked about and when we struggled, we were sent to church instead of therapy. I am passionate about working with clients who are often the first in their family's to address mental health issues through therapy. Often times, these clients find that working on their own healing and growth creates more rupture in their family relationships instead of the healthier relationships they had hoped for as the family pushes back on the client's attempt to break from family norms.

I also really enjoy working with clients who don't feel that they fit in due to their culture or lack thereof - clients who feel don't feel Hispanic enough or American enough.
