Hi, I'm Annabelle!
I graduated from Pacific Lutheran University in Parkland, WA, in 2019 where I received a degree in biology. I took two years off from pursuing medical school and in those two years I learned that I wanted to pursue a route solely dedicated to mental health. I am currently at Antioch University Seattle pursuing a Psy.D in clinical psychology. I'm not quite sure what I want to do after I receive my doctoral degree, but I am so excited to serve the community and continue expanding my learning as part of the PEAK team.
I'm a strong believer in the mentality that someone would go to the doctor for a fractured ankle so why shouldn't someone seek out care and help for their mental health? As a proud Filipina American, I am aware of the mental health stigma in my community and I strive to overcome that stigma and allow everyone the time and space to process and work through whatever mental struggles they are facing.
In my free time I love to read, watch movies at the movie theater, hang out with my family and my partner, and go to live music concerts in Seattle!
