Being readily available to everyone and helping them is okay, but it is a different story when you feel no one is there for you. It (therapy) has reminded me that in order to save others, I gotta save myself first. Thank you! I am back to taking care of myself and am carefully providing emotional support to people who matters to me.
Therapy has helped me develop healthier ways of dealing with stress and coping with challenging situations. It has taught me, to process my thoughts, emotions, and actions, so I can better understand myself, my situation, and respond accordingly.

All this doesn’t mean everything will be easier moving forward, but it does give me peace of mind knowing I can count on myself somehow.

After 3 sessions, I was able to go to malls, churches, parties and events just by myself which I wasn’t able to do for more than 2 years.

Better Counsel: Dads Matter
Increasingly on our practice, we’ve seen more fathers involved in the referral process. Traditionally, Filipino dads will want to be more concerned with their role as “provider”, relegating the “nurturer” role to moms. In a traditionally macho society like ours, this has always been the case. However, it is very interesting and refreshing to […]

I stumbled across this graphic as the weekend was winding down. At first, it seemed odd, quite plain, and then I read, and re-read the words once again until I realized how truthful and beautiful and amazing these words were. The words seemed to make me reflect on my own work in both schools […]
