Mabuhay! Thank you for being here.

Gabay (n. guide) is an offering where you may book a consultation with Gabes.

In your time together, you may engage with the following themes:

  • The decolonization of
    • mental health
    • academia
    • creativity + music
    • theology + the church
    • racial identity
  • Ancestral interconnectedness and reverence
  • Racial, migration, and postcolonial trauma
  • Internalized oppression and colonial mentality
  • The intergenerational transmission of trauma and resilience
  • Intersectionality + antiracism
  • .. and so forth.

Frequency: Completing the form allows for a one-time meeting, but if you wish to have more than one session, you may continue the conversation during or after your first session with Gabes.

Duration: A consultation will be 45-50 minutes in length, but the duration will mostly depend on the topic/s or questions you intend to address.

Rate: This is a donations-based offering with an encouraged rate of $80-$120 depending on the topic/s or questions you intend to address.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This offering will not be held in a clinical capacity. Gabes has the right to say no to inquiries about therapy referrals and concerns about one’s personal mental health.

Finding therapeutic care is absolutely possible, and you may use a search engine to find therapists near you. Some helpful resource pages in finding clinical services for BIPOCs and QTBIPOCs: Ayana Therapy, Therapy for Black GirlsInclusive Therapists, and Open Path Collective.

Additionally, Gabes also has the right to say no to services that are beyond her boundary of exerting mental and emotional labor. If this is the case, she or a member of her team will respond with recommended directions or resources.

The process starts by completing this form. Its purpose is to get to know you and to see what questions or topics you intend to engage with during this meeting. It basically asks how Gabes can support you, and how she may offer guidance and insight in your time together.

After you complete this form, Gabes will review your submission and reach out to you about the decision whether or not to move forward with a consultation.
