Aloha! My name is Leah and I provide counseling to adults, adolescents, and children.
Sometimes we get tired of trying to figure everything out on our own. It can be overwhelming when everyone thinks they know what is best for us. Do you ever wish someone would just listen? It can be so helpful to talk to someone who really listens - without judging us or telling us what to do. The best relationships are ones in which each person is an equal partner. By working together in a kind and supportive manner, constructive strategies can be identified.

I specialize in child and adolescent therapy, as well as women's issues, anxiety, depression, and trauma.
Go it alone or reach out for support? It can be a tough decision, especially when getting help can seem like just another thing on our to-do list. But, reaching out when you need a non-judgemental, empathic space can make all the difference. Whether you're dealing with anxiety, depression, trauma, relational concerns, or parenting problems, finding the right person to give you perspective and guidance can mean overcoming your problems versus drowning in them.

I have 30+ years of experience working with children, adolescents, young adults, and adults, individually, as couples, or in families, in multiple settings.
I see therapy as an adventure in which people join with the therapist in exploration. This journey eventually leads to clarity about available choices. People as a rule, want to do better, and be better but lack the tools. My goal is to help people break problems down, embrace personal uniqueness, mourn losses which are often the result of trauma, gain new perspectives, develop skills and make clear, sometimes very different choices.

DeAnna, was born to educational missionaries in Papua New Guinea in the 1970's. As an infant, she was cared for by a native Papuan man from the Enga Tribe, who spoke his language with DeAnna and had a daughter the same age. "Growing up in PNG, most of my friends were different shades of brown, and I was the other, wishing I could rub some color onto my freckled skin". DeAnna and her family left PNG when she was 8 years old. "The move and transition back to the United States was the most traumatic period in my childhood. I’ve come to realize as an adult, that this is my reason for becoming a child and family therapist".

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in Hawaii provide mental health therapy to children and are experts in child development.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed by a competent mental health clinician, produce almost the same results. About half of all kids will get better. Of those that improve, 80% will show progress in a relatively short time (likely in fewer than six sessions), the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in Hawaii build great relationships with the child and the parent. They also see the child's strengths and are open to hearing the child's possible solutions to the challenges the child faces. Finally, a good therapist appreciates the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
