Sweet Mango Therapy: Healing, Growth, and Community


Do you feel overwhelmed by anxietytrauma, or depression? Do you often find yourself stuck in a cycle of overworking and battling imposter syndrome?

At Sweet Mango Therapy Group, Inc., we understand your struggle. As one of the first Filipina-owned group therapy practices in California, we’re passionate about supporting the AAPI community. We specialize in helping first and second-generation, high-achieving women navigate their mental health challenges. While also breaking intergenerational patterns of overworking and scarcity mindset.

At Sweet Mango Therapy Group, Inc., we know religion is an important part of Filipina/x/o and AAPI culture, but it shouldn’t keep us from seeking help. Our team strives to create a safe and welcoming space for women in the Filipina/x/o and AAPI community to heal and grow. A space where stigmas can be broken and collective trauma can be addressed.

Our therapists believe that much like the sweet mangoes from Zambales, where our founder was born, therapy helps us metabolize trauma in our bodies. It’s a nourishing process that promotes growth and healing. And just like how the sweetest mangoes require patience and care to grow, we believe that healing takes time and effort. 

Sweet Mango Therapy Group, Inc. is not just a therapy practice; it’s a community. Our mission at Sweet Mango Therapy is not only to provide high-quality therapy services but also to build a community. One where Filipina/x/o and AAPI women can feel seen, heard, and supported.

From participating in festivals to being a vendor at events, Sweet Mango Therapy is dedicated to creating spaces where our community can come together and feel a sense of belonging.

Our practice is one of the top sponsors of the first Filipino/a/x therapist directory called Therapinay. It’s a directory that will connect you with culturally competent therapists who understand your unique experiences. You can also find us at various events throughout the year that promote mental health awareness and are centered around Filipina/x/o and AAPI culture.

At Sweet Mango Therapy Group, Inc., we specialize in anxiety, trauma, depression, and family counseling within the Filipina/x/o and AAPI communities. We understand the unique challenges that come with being a first or second-generation immigrant and high achiever. Our therapist may not have lived your exact experience, but we empathize and acknowledge the struggles that come with it. We know the culture, the expectations, and the pressures.

Whether you are facing personal challenges or family issues, our compassionate therapists are here to help you navigate and heal. If you are struggling with a scarcity mindset, imposter syndrome, or overworking patterns, we can help you break those cycles and create a healthier relationship with yourself and those around you.
