Are you struggling with issues related to immigration and acculturation?

  • Are you struggling with depression, anxiety, or low self-esteem?
  • Do you have persistent feelings of sadness, anxiety, or feeling empty?
  • Do everyday tasks feel overwhelming or tiring?
  • Have you lost interest in activities you once enjoyed?
  • Have you had a change in appetite or sleep patterns?
  • Are your worries taking over your life?
  • Do you often feel grumpy or tense?
  • Do you often tell yourself that you’re not good enough, are a failure, or can’t do things as well as others?
  • Do you have physical symptoms such as a racing heart, sweaty palms, or nausea?

Let’s be honest: there are plenty of concerns to consider in today’s world. As an immigrant, it is normal to have moments of feeling depressed, anxious, or overwhelmed. If these feelings start to affect your daily life and feel persistent, getting professional support can be a helpful outlet.

As a Filipino-American and immigrant myself, I offer multilingual therapy to the immigrant population.

For therapy to be effective, addressing a client’s cultural and linguistic needs is crucial. You do not need to suffer alone, and therapy can help you live a happier and more content life. Counseling can help you learn more about how your thoughts and emotions affect how you feel. You can learn how to be in control of your life and feel empowered to handle whatever comes your way.

DEPRESSION

 

Depression is more than feeling sad. Depression interferes with your daily life, impacts your quality of life, and may result in problems at work, school, and in relationships. Depression can be treated, and there are many ways that a therapist can help you manage symptoms and feel better.

Therapy for depression includes identifying triggers, developing coping skills, and learning communication techniques to help manage stress.

Healing is possible.

ANXIETY

 

If you feel like your worries, fears, or unease are starting to affect your enjoyment of life, getting some support to manage your anxiety can be helpful.

Therapy will teach you different ways to handle your feelings, thoughts, and behaviors to reduce your anxiety. You will gain confidence as you learn the tools and skills needed to feel empowered and in control of your life.

You can be free from anxiety.
