I commend you for taking the first step in self-discovery and healing! I invite you to share your feelings and emerge with a "Lighter Heart." I want to hear YOUR story. Does the world often overwhelm you? Do you seem to "feel" things deeply or become easily emotional? Then you may be a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP). HSPs are more prone to over-stimulation, depression, anxiety, addictions and relationship difficulties. As a Highly Sensitive therapist, I can help you to recognize the benefits and hardships of this trait, be more productive, have better relationships, and protect yourself from overwhelm.

Being our most resilient, healthy self is a process of acceptance and skill building. It is particularly hard when anger, sadness, and worry get in the way of connecting with others, advancing professionally, or maintaining health. It is important to have a safe place to process and solve life transitions without judgment. I utilize evidenced based psychotherapy and assessment to restore value based cognitions, mindfulness and healthy behaviors. Specialized treatment planning is the first stage of the process. Adults, adolescents, couples, and specialized assessment cases (ages 7 to 80+) are encouraged to schedule a consultation appointment.

I most often work with clients who are experiencing concerns pertaining to anxiety, depression, identity struggles, implementation of coping skills, life direction and purpose guidance, relationships, communication skills, social skills, stress, and overall life satisfaction. Mental Health Coaching is ideal for clients presented with the above concerns in their own personal lives because the strengths-based orientation of coaching guides clients toward their ideal mental well-being.

I approach therapy as education - helping clients to better identify patterns associated with difficulties, develop skills to overcome these difficulties, and learn how to utilize these skills in their daily lives in order to live as optimally as possible. We focus both on addressing the issues that have been plaguing you as well as learning to live more fully and comfortably in each moment and activity you are engaged in. Learning powerful skills helps overcome specific problems, boost resilience against future problems, and more fully enjoy daily life. Therapy is individually tailored to your specific needs and lifestyle.

Hello! When life throws obstacles and challenges your way and you are experiencing more misery than peace and joy, it may be time to seek support from a mental health clinician. The issue may be current (i.e., financial, marital, career problems) or stem from the past (previous traumas and abuse). Depression, anxiety, relationships, grief, self-esteem, work stress, and life transitions are only a few of the many areas I have worked with extensively. I offer a gentle, solution-oriented approach to therapy. I use an array of interventions that would best fit your needs. See www.drcantorna.com.

*Offering phone and video sessions* Reaching out for help when we are suffering can be extremely difficult. It takes courage to seek out support when we are experiencing symptoms related to internal or external conflict. I believe our symptoms are gifts inviting us to explore more deeply our connection or lack thereof to ourselves and others and provide opportunity for growth. I see myself as a facilitator in your understanding of the meaning of these messages in order to enable healing. Sometimes these signs present themselves as uncomfortable or painful experiences such as shame, blame, loneliness, pain, anger and anxiety.

I consider the therapeutic relationship as being a partnership developed with my clients. My primary theoretical orientation is "person in environment" or systems theory. It is a client-centered approach that utilizes a bio-psycho-social-spiritual perspective or holistic approach to explore and transform problematic behaviors, unresolved issues and challenging life transitions. My approach to therapy includes the use of cognitive behavioral, psycho-dynamic, existential, and action-oriented therapeutic methods.

Dialectical (DBT) Therapists
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is the treatment most closely associated with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). Therapists practice DBT in both individual and group sessions. The therapy combines elements of CBT to help with regulating emotion through distress tolerance and mindfulness. The goal of Dialectical Behavior Therapy is to alleviate the intense emotional pain associated with BPD. Its core assumption is that change and acceptance are intertwined. We typically think of our efforts to change things as emerging out of non-acceptance. We either decide to accept things as they are or we seek to change: through DBT it's not a case of change or acceptance, but resolving the conflicts to allow for self-acceptance and constructive change.

If you're looking for DBT therapy in Holualoa or for a Holualoa DBT therapist these professionals provide dialectical behavior therapy, DBT group therapy, DBT therapy, dialectic behavioral therapy (which is a common misspelling) and dialectical therapy. They provide dialectical counseling, DBT counseling in Holualoa and DBT treatment. They include DBT groups, DBT therapists, DBT psychologists and DBT counseling.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Holualoa are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Holualoa

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Holualoa you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Holualoa and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Holualoa or family therapy in Holualoa.
