Announcement icon Telehealth and in-office sessions are both available. In-office safety protocols have been established for all face-to-face appointments.
I attended the University of Hawaii in Maui and Hilo, and obtained my Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling from Adam’s State University in Colorado. I am formally trained in Behavior Therapy and working with children and adolescents with autism and developmental disabilities. I am also a certified substance abuse counselor who utilizes a client-centered harm-reduction approach in my practice.
My background includes individuals with dual-diagnosis disorders as well as those with severe mental health issues such as bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.
My therapeutic approach is eclectic and integrative ranging from cognitive behavioral therapy to client-centered modalities such as positive psychology and motivational interviewing. In my free time I enjoy bodyboarding, camping, traveling and spending time at home with my husband and cat.
