About Me

I'm Mika (mee-kah) Quintinita (she/her), a licensed marriage and family therapist who enjoys helping women examine the societal and cultural narratives influencing their identity, challenge those narratives' roles in their lives, and discover their authentic Self.


Being a second-generation Filipino-American raised in a military family has played a key role in my growth as both a woman and as a therapist. When I first sought therapy as a college student, I immediately found myself struggling to connect in sessions with my therapists because I constantly needed to explain myself and justify the role my cultural background played in how I approached the world. For years I couldn’t find a therapist who looked like me and understood my experiences as an Asian-American.


So I simply became one.

Prior to becoming a therapist, I was an assistant teacher at a Montessori preschool where I engaged students in play-based activities promoting their academic, emotional, and social development. As an undergraduate student, I volunteered as a youth leader where I supported teenagers in exploring themes of grief, community, and identity.

I have a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Chaminade University of Honolulu and a Master of Arts in Couples and Family Therapy from Seattle University. As an intern at Sound in Bellevue, I provided both individual, family, and group therapy to a diverse clientele ranging from preschool age to older adult age.

While I was primarily raised in the state of Hawai'i, I have been lucky to call Washington home since 2016. When I'm not wearing my therapist hat, I enjoy reading, playing board games, and exploring the Pacific Northwest with my partner and Feta, our fun-loving, sun-soaking, cuddle-obsessed American Bulldog.
