Eileen Drapiza-Dornan, MA, MFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Berkeley
Do you move between culturally different worlds on a regular basis? Do you feel that you don't completely fit in, that your identity is mixed or "in between?" Do you long to say what you've never before dared to say? Maybe you missed a warm, nurturing upbringing because you were taught to focus on achievement at the expense of emotional needs. Is this a legacy you wish to accept for yourself or your children? As the child of Filipino immigrants, these issues resonate deeply with me, and I can help if you feel stuck between opposing cultural values.
Depression and anxiety are often rooted in early emotional memories, and the pain of remembering rejection, fear, or traumatic events might keep you from understanding that present-day challenges are linked to earlier experiences. I can help you stop repeating patterns of the past by moving toward new, healthier choices.
I am an Asian American therapist of color, and I'd love to help you! I invite you to visit my website by clicking the button on this page. If you want to take it further, give me a call or use the online scheduling button on my website.
