About My Clients
My clients are looking for a safe place to explore some of life's most difficult questions. These questions can cause a lot of anxiety and feelings of being lost. Whether it be the meaning of life, what happens after death, or why we are the way we are. I'm here to guide you through the toughest questions to help you find peace and comfort while doing so. It's scary to question these things alone, but together we can journey into the unknown.
My Background and Approach
Growing up Filipino, I have first hand knowledge about how our cultural background shapes us as individuals. I understand the journey it is to be at the intersection of two cultures, and wanting to honor both in your life. I also write music and play the guitar, so I know how important a creative outlet can be. Sometimes, it can be your outlet for processing your experiences and the feelings surrounding it. We can talk about how to use your creative outlet to express yourself, nothing is off limits here. My approach is to help you navigate your own questions and beliefs the way you feel is best. We'll ask these questions together and help you find the answers within yourself. We can get as existential as you would like, I am more than willing to help you expand your horizons as you do so. My sessions are a place of calm and support, there is no judgement, only your journey.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
At Sanctuary Counseling, everyone is worthy of love, support, and acceptance. We are committed to the support of the LGBTQIA+ community in our area, and provide a safe space for our clients to explore and grow in their identity. We believe that Black Lives Matter, and continually endeavor to ensure not only a justice-informed community of healing, but also to dedicate ourselves to proactively anti-racist education and counseling interventions. We also are committed to our Manna Basket Financial Program, which takes 10% of our receipts before taxes and is used to provide assistance to those clients who may need financial support. This is our biggest effort to combat financial holdbacks for those who are seeking services.
