Are you feeling unloved, anxious and unsure on how to move forward? Are you having difficulty connecting with a loved one? Have you tried talking through the issues and continue to feel unresolved or stuck? And no matter what you do, it seems like you’re relationship or situation isn't getting better. The thing is, whatever is happening, it must be addressed. Therapy provides the space for you to process what you're going through and it can teach you how to manage your thoughts and emotions in a effective way.

I utilize EMDR, mindfulness techniques, Internal Family Systems and somatic interventions.
We have all had life experiences that have caused us to lose connection with our true self - the person we were born to be. These experiences include traumas, stressful life circumstances and dysfunctional childhood families of origin. What these experiences have in common is that they all cause us to cut off certain parts of our true self in order to adapt to the circumstances that we have had to endure. I enjoy helping people re-discover those lost parts of themself and break down the invisible walls that have been limiting their lives, so that they can become their genuine self - full of love, joy and peace.

You have been living through a demanding and exhausting time. The global pandemic is continuously shifting your relationships and the way you live your life. You have also been exposed to collective trauma both within your communities, and on a larger global scale. You're finding it harder to relax and rest, and you struggle to find meaning in a world that seems overwhelmingly painful to exist in. You want things to be different, but you feel stuck.

Aloha! Life is full of change and transition, and that means life is also full of times when we need extra support to manage the anxiety, depression, and/or distress that often comes along with it. If this sounds like you, you're in the right place. I like to think of myself as a treatment partner, not someone who sits silently while you figure out your own path forward. That means I take a holistic, collaborative approach to treatment, with a nod to evidence-based practices, such as CBT, ACT, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused, as well as using EMDR and trauma-focused CPT for PTSD and other trauma-related symptoms.

If you’re reading this, you’re having some sort of trouble. I help good people get through tough times. There are many ways to do counseling. You can think of me as a life coach who offers principles to help you solve personal and relational problems. And /or, I can be your therapist to help you process a history of hurts and help you get on with your life. I work with couples and individuals (children, teens and adults) in an atmosphere that is casual and relaxed. I use language and tools you can use now. No psychobabble. If we connect we're likely to do some good work. So I'm ready when you are.

Each of us go through different seasons in our life where change can happen unexpectedly. At times there can be so much pressure to be successful personally and professionally and sometimes it can be challenging to be our authentic selves. Past or present circumstances can leave us feeling stuck, confused, fearful or hopeless. Those feelings are valid and it is important that they are heard and understood. I am a strong believer in the power of therapy where an individual can truly be their honest self. We all deserve a safe place to be open about our history, our emotions, and our dreams and I am here to offer that space.

Therapy can involve relieving stress in family relationships and improvement in overall quality of life for those in treatment. A lot of time and energy are spent with all other aspects in life, why wouldn't we invest growth and enrichment with our loved ones?

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.
