I have been in clinical psychological practice for twenty years. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in AB Psychology from the University of the Philippines, and a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from the Ateneo De Manila. I am currently completing my Doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology at the De La Salle University.
As a Registered Psychologist, I do psychotherapy for children, adolescents and adults. Since I am not a medical doctor, I do not prescribe medication as part of my treatment. I have worked in the private practice and hospital setting providing psychological services and clinical supervision. I consult with schools and companies as needed for various topics needing specialized input from a Psychologist.
I am a member of the Psychological Association of the Philippines (Certified Specialist in Clinical Psychology), a board member of the Philippine Association for Child and Play Therapy, a Certified Practitioner of Reality Therapy/Choice Theory, and a Founding Member of the William Glasser Institute of the Philippines.
In therapy, I use different modalities as I believe there is not a one-size-fits-all treatment; different concerns require different approaches. I am drawn to treatments which incorporate cognitive interventions like reality therapy, mindfulness-based practices, and also trauma informed interventions as needed.
At core, whether I am supervising, doing psychotherapy or consulting, my philosophy is person-centered. I wish to guide others through the process of trying to achieve the best version of themselves.
