I am a queer gender-fluid multicultural 2nd gen Filipinx-American therapist of color.
My approach is humanistic, existential, holistic, somatic, and relational with Gestalt as my core foundation.
I am influenced and impassioned by intersectional feminist, queer, multicultural, liberation psychology, transformative justice, and social justice theory and principles.
I deeply value curiosity, humility, authenticity, spaciousness, aliveness, creativity, difference, and inclusion.
I am body-positive, fat-positive, sex-positive, and queer, kink, and poly affirming.
Personally and professionally, Gestalt has been like a perpetual home-coming for me - allowing me to come back to myself over and over and over again. Gestalt helps me make space for all of my different parts and aids me in holding space for others to be more of themselves.
In my spare time, I enjoy learning about/trying new things, reading feminist graphic novels, collecting art toys, making up new words (like anxcitement), diving deep, connecting through laughter and tears, meditating, chanting, collaging, traveling to tropical locations, dancing for hours and hours, belting out songs while driving in my escape pod, swimming in the ocean, spinning, visiting bizarre sea creatures at aquariums, watching psychological thrillers, hanging out with my partner and our two torties (Loki & Friggie), as well as eating yummy food and bonding with friends, fam, and loved ones.
