How will I know if you are the right therapist for me?
Mental health treatment is a partnership, and it is very important that you find someone qualified who is the best match for your unique needs.
I provide a free 30-minute phone consultation to help us both assess whether it’s a good fit.

Are you seeing clients in person?
At this time, I am only offering online telehealth therapy by phone or video to clients located throughout California.
Depression, anxiety, and lack of self-confidence are signals that you might benefit from psychotherapy to understand the cause of your suffering. You can heal and feel better, and you don't need to suffer alone. Joy is possible, and I'm here to help.
As a Filipino-American and immigrant myself, I offer multilingual therapy to the immigrant population.
