“I am also a gay, first-generation Filipino American. I celebrate the intersectionality that immigrants face as they live with a multiplicity of issues. I have personally experienced the damages of reparative therapy and religion that has no room for the LGBT+ community. My professional experience includes couples work, sexual abuse, physical abuse, developmental trauma, sex/love/porn addiction, depression, and anxiety. My trauma-informed approach is aided by my training in Brainspotting of which I am pursuing certification. My hope is that you will allow me to join you in your story.”
