I am a coach with a background in psychology. My coaching involves two areas: dating and higher education.

Dating Coaching

Forming intimate relationships is a complicated process, and one that most of us didn’t learn about in school.  As a coach, my goal is to help teach people about establishing and fostering healthy romantic relationships that are in line with their personal values. This includes creating a collaborative and supportive connection with clients through helping them identify their relationship values, navigate finding romantic partners and maintaining healthy relationships, and provide education about dating practices. I believe that individual identities, including sexual orientation, gender identity, and relationship identity (e.g., monogamy, consensual non-monogamy, polyamory) are important facets to incorporate in understanding an individual’s relationship values. Overall, my hope is that we can uncover what you value in a romantic relationship, how you see yourself as a romantic partner, and how to help you become more effective in getting and keeping the relationships you want.

Education Coaching

In addition to helping people form close relationships, I also have a passion for helping students navigate the transition to college and the pursuit of higher education. As the child of first-generation Filipino and Chinese immigrants, I have learned first-hand that navigating higher education can be difficult to do alone. I am here to help with the college application process and choosing a major in college, as well as the graduate school application process, selecting a research mentor, and finding professional experiences that will bolster your skill sets for your future career. In solidarity, it is my hope to walk side-by-side with students of color as they pursue their dreams.
