Jelissa "Jojo" Rempojo (she/her/hers)
I was born and raised in a Filipino household in Los Angeles California. During my childhood, I lived in Villamor Philippines for several years as a child and attended school in Manila. I lived in Santa Clarita, California until relocating to Eureka California land of the Wiyot Tribe, where I currently reside. Living in
Humboldt County is one of the best places I could be during this point in my life. Being outside in nature prioritizes and soothes both my mental and physical health. I followed the Psychology path for a long time and added minors in Health Education. I am a proud two time Humboldt State Alumni.
My work and my values are motivated by Social Justice and understand the impacts of what being a woman of color in the field of psychology can do. In the therapy room I bring in teachings of Liberation Psychology, Person-Centered, Identity Focused, Emotion Focused, and Motivational Interviewing while
providing Culturally safe and sensitive care, along with Gender Affirming Therapy Practices. My authenticity and ability to be present are big parts of why I am able to create strong and trusting relationships with my clients. Being part of someone’s journey to understanding themselves better is very
rewarding. I aim to be a person in my client’s journey who helps bring more hope, happiness, and humor through my active listening and interpersonal skills.
My work experiences include working with clients from diverse populations; adults, adolescents, children, couples, college students, neurodivergent and TBI individuals, women’s groups, and families. Most of my clinical experience surrounds helping clients who identify as WOC and LGBTQIA+. Most of my case loads surround issues such as trauma, racial and gender identity, oppression, women’s issues, and interpersonal relationships.
I enjoy helping my people, Filipina/x/o individuals with issues that are interpersonal, societal, intergenerational, familial, and cultural. These issues include oppression, discrimination, gender roles, expectations, intergenerational trauma, identity and multiracial issues, internal racism, and psychological issues. We’ll vibe together, laugh together, and heal together.
