Personalized Care with Cultural-Humility

"Change Talk" refers to a person's mention and discussion of his, her, or their Desire, Ability, Reason, and Need to change behavior and Commitment to changing. The concept of change talk gives life to our abilities and desires to change whether it be our habits, our thinking, or our way of being. The complexities of multi-cultural influences in our lives are vital in our work to ensure that your change process honors your cultural identity, heritage, and experience. Your your time with me, our talks, can be compassionately challenging and useful for your evolution and how you interact with others in a profound way. SERVICES: THERAPY/COUNSELING: Reconnecting the individual, couple, and family The journey in therapy can unearth underlying pain in a safe place with a vested partner such as myself. I guide my clients toward a deeper understanding of themselves and their impact in their relationships. I work with a wide range of emotional, behavioral, and wellness needs providing services that span from therapy for depression and life transitions to parenting support, couples counseling and beyond. In a comfortable and supportive atmosphere, I offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each of my client’s individual needs to help attain their ideal personal growth. My therapy style integrates dialogue and activities that facilitate awareness, healing, and change. Our sessions are tailored for you and my interventions may evolve based on the focus of the narrative you choose to share with me. I specialize in working with people with disabilities – physical, mental, and emotional. My combined training as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and as a Rehabilitation Counselor allows me to address your needs in the context of your situation and conditions from a multicultural lens. I employ compassion, creativity, humility, and humor in working with individuals, couples, families, law enforcement and military persons of all ages and sexual orientation and with various cultural backgrounds, especially those who are in transition into new beginnings and stages-of-life. ​I immigrated from the Philippines and my family made certain that my Pilipino heritage became rooted in America. I am bi-lingual in Tagalog and English and I identify as a Pilipina immigrant. The Pilipino culture is known for being hospitable, helpful, generous with their time and resources, and for their strong family and community values. These are some of my cultural traits that have shaped my upbringing and, therefore, my therapy style. ​I gravitate toward Attachment, Cognitive-Behavioral, Strategic, Family Systems, Multicultural and Interpersonal Theories of therapy, although I take an eclectic stance when applying interventions in my practice. I also incorporate the concepts and tools of the Gottman Method for Couples Therapy in my work with couples. I feel my work with you requires the use of various therapeutic ideas and there is no one-way-suits-all method. ​Allow me to collaborate with you in fighting for your health, discovering your strengths, and empowering you to make the changes that lead to a more fruitful lifestyle. Allow me to be a witness to your life. I invite you to engage in change talk. CLINICAL SUPERVISION: Guiding those who are on track toward licensure. The path to licensure can be intimidating, confusing, and energizing. My approach in clinical supervision is similar to my approach in therapy – compassionate, assertive, and non-judgmental.  ​Our time together is focused on your questions, your dilemmas, your inquiries, your process. My role is to support and guide you to consider multiple perspectives and understand your counter-transference to serve your clients in an ethical manner within your legal scope of practice. Let our partnership be the vessel you use to earn your hours towards licensure and to deeply develop your clinical identity. CONSULTATION & TRAININGS: Supporting individuals and businesses to develop empowering new skills and unlock potential. My consultation and training services expand to organizations and individuals who are in need of a third party to identify and strategize ways to improve service delivery, along with trainings and developing and implementing new programs. This includes prioritizing mental health wellness. For agencies - Working together to make your visions a practice. Implementation of wellness services, such as training, in the workplace that involves staff and for staff can increase employee engagement, improve morale, increase safety, and mitigate turnover. My experience working in a variety of settings and on multi-disciplinary teams allows me to work with varying professions and industries from a place of curiosity and cultural humility. ​ The work we do together can build on the existing knowledge your team and agency possess while keeping you relevant with best practices. Some agencies want to improve their processes and policies and procedures. While others may want a training or presentation on specific topics. Whatever the need or concern, I can develop a tailored service if you do not have an existing project in mind. Or I can work on the project you do have and collaborate to bring it to implementation and completion. Individualized training modules, presentations, and workshops are available to address your needs. Sample topics: Crucial Conversations Emotional Intelligence Stress Management Leadership Academy For individuals - Harnessing your ideas towards clarity and action. Some people prefer a coaching approach to make changes in their lives. They have intentions to work towards specific goals personal growth. The consultation journey we share would be collaborative in nature to accomplish your goals. You are expected to take ownership of your ideas and to fully participate in the process of movement towards accomplishment. COMMUNITY SPECIALIZATION includes: Filipino/a/x Asian Law Enforcement Justice System-Involved Disability HOURS: Therapy sessions and clinical supervision are available Tuesday-Thursday, 0900-1700. I observe major national holidays. Availability of appointment slots vary. We can discuss schedule preferences during our initial conversation. FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION: Call, email, or click on the "Contact" button on the home page to arrange a free 15-minute initial consultation or to schedule an appointment for any service. SERVICE MODALITY: Telemental Health Therapy, Telehealth or Telecounseling. I am exclusively providing video sessions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and in my commitment to support your health, safety, and wellness. In-person therapy sessions are no longer available. Research indicates that telemental health therapy, or more commonly known as virtual or online therapy, is effective and as effective as in-person sessions. I do offer the option to conduct our sessions over the phone instead of video to accommodate needs and unique circumstances. I use a HIPAA-compliant and secure platform for video sessions. All paperwork and sharing of documents will be provided via this platform. Just like in-person sessions, all sessions and communication between us over phone or video are confidential and private. Consultation Services: These discussions, meetings, and trainings can happen over the phone or through video. Your need and goal will dictate how we work together and how I can be of most help. WELLNESS SERVICES As a complement to therapy, I invite you to visit The Giving Well, a wellness education and engagement company that is also an online wellness community, www.thegivingwellco.com.
