Racial Identity

Race and ethnicity play an important role in our lives, informing how we see ourselves and the world. Our racial identity can be shaped by multiple factors and is not always predictable, static or easily interpreted. A mental health professional specializing in racial identity will specifically focus on facilitating your journey to understanding your racial identity and its influence on your life.

I utilize Relational Cultural Therapy to ensure we can sensitively and effectively examine how the various personal and cultural relationships in your life have impacted you and your wellbeing. Additionally, I believe my lived experience as a individual who is Filipino-American and a second-generation immigrant has helped me foster a greater appreciation and empathy for the challenges facing many folks who identify as BIPOC and/or AAPI.

"What are you?" was a question I quickly became accustomed to growing up in the Pacific Northwest. With roots in Chamoru, Irish and Armenian heritage, there is no clean box for me to check. This question has been a lifelong journey in understanding who I am in the context of others, and more importantly how I define myself. I hope to work with others who are embarking on their own cultural journey and are seeking deeper answers to questions about themselves.

I work with people who are seeking to understand more about how racial identity is impacting their life. Cultural identification is an important part of how we see and move through the world, so whether we are of the most privileged race (white) or a marginalized group (a person of color), doing work on racial identity can be an important piece of healing.

If you are Black, Indigenous, a person of color, queer, trans, gender expansive, or live with a disability, you may be tired of being strong. You may notice certain spaces and people where you don’t feel comfortable being your full self. ​In therapy you can feel understood, valued, and empowered to heal and grow. In therapy you can explore and celebrate your culture, your wisdom, your strengths, and your identities.

Clinical Psychologist

PhD

I specialize in racial identity development, particularly multiracial backgrounds. My dissertation delved into the complexities of navigating multiracial identity, including challenges and opportunities inherent in this journey. Having grown up in a multiracial family myself, I intimately understand the cultural and intergenerational dynamics at play. I am sensitive to the nuanced demands and expectations that individuals from multiracial backgrounds often encounter.
