Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC)
MA in Counseling Psychology, Trinity Western University
Nationally Certified Counselor
My faith is the foundation for my desire to see others through to wholeness. While the Christian faith is what I practice,
I welcome those from various backgrounds and faiths.
My culture has significantly shaped who I am. I was born in the Philippines, and grew up in the US in a Navy family.
My family's travels afforded me the opportunity to encounter people of various ethnic groups and values. As a bi-cultural woman, my own experiences have helped me understand some of the multifaceted issues that people of mixed races face.
I am passionate about supporting those who have had difficulty finding their voice or have lost it. I have served in various helping capacities since 2005. My work and life experiences called me to the human services field where I eventually earned my Master's degree in Counseling Psychology from Trinity Western University. While at Trinity, I completed my internship at Catholic Community Services in the community mental health department as well as the Recovery Center. I also helped co-facilitate a women's group at the Agape House. In 2017, I stepped into what I believe is my calling and began serving others in a counseling capacity.
Some of my professional interests include: women's issues, multicultural issues, and grief and loss. I am a Nationally Certified Counselor and I pursue continuing education to stay informed and further my learning.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family outdoors, connecting with friends, enjoying a good meal, walking, biking and deepening my spiritual practices. I also love a good song and the closest people to me have witnessed the power of music call me to the dance floor!
