My Approach

My approach is eclectic and I draw from the CBT, ACT, Mindful practices, motivational interviewing, neuroscience and resiliency training. We'll review how you are doing at home, school, work and in relationships. We'll explore your values, goals and strengths. Then we'll identify the skills, attitudes, and perspectives that can help get you back on course. I strive to be kind, compassionate and accepting. I also offer short term or intermittent sessions. Counseling should be accessible and tailored to what best suits your needs. Growth takes time, I can help.

My Background

I am licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) in Washington and Oregon. I appreciate the interconnection of neuroscience, emotional, physical and spiritual health. I love the idea that we can change the structure of our brain for improved health and wellness. I am guided by the teachings of Rick Hanson, Brene Brown, Dan Siegel, Tara Brach, Marshall B. Rosenberg and many others. Experience working with: resiliency skills, depression, anxiety, insomnia, persistent pain, stress management, life transitions, and caregiver fatigue. Personal experience: Continuing to grow as a human with flaws. Building community as a recent Oregonian. Over a decade ago my husband came out as being transgender. I can support you in your journey and help you sift through your feelings if you are going through a life challenge Cultural Background: I am a third generation Filipino American who grew up in Hawaii.
