Preferred Name: Marianne

Online Therapy

About Me

I am one of a HANDFUL of Filipina American therapists based in Houston, the fourth largest and most diverse city in the nation. I am trilingual in English and the Filipino dialects: Tagalog and Cebuano. I have a unique understanding of the bicultural/immigrant experience, being an immigrant myself. I believe everyone has an innate need to feel seen and valued. This is my goal in my practice: that the person sitting in front of me knows their value and provide a safe space to process the jagged edges of life. I want to ensure that the goals clients have in therapy are met and to empower them to face the other side of my office door.

Education & Experience

Marianne specializes in processing trauma, stressors, anxiety, depression, and grief and loss. She uses a transtheoretical approach to her practice, focusing on strengths-based and person-centered collaboration. She is also passionate about decolonizing and deconstructing systems of oppression and uses trauma informed practices in her practice. My main modality is to assess for trauma in the past that could have caused the current symptoms. I believe in holistic care, and not just treating symptoms. I have a special interest in BIPOC concerns, including and not limited to, decolonizing and deconstructing oppressive systems that have kept BIPOC folks captive.
