When you have stress or trauma in your life, it can feel overwhelming and life can unravel. Your children are acting out, your teen is being suspended or involved with law enforcement, or your younger child won't stop misbehaving at school. These are all stressful family situations that can feel overwhelming to anyone. My passion is to bring healing to people who have been through traumatic or stressful experiences.

I specialize in children , adolescents and families but see adults individually as well.
Let's face it. Life is not always a beach. Parenting is the hardest job in the world. Relationships, no matter how good, take lots of work. My practice is designed to help people, whether they be children , adolescents or adults, better address the challenges facing them. Within the context of a therapeutic alliance, the healing takes place. The success of psychotherapy is always related to the match between client and therapist. If that match is a good one, the client will find him or herself in a caring and safe environment and able to explore how to more positively impact their world.

I also utilize shadow work, and inner child work, so as to suspend judgement on self and work towards healing and self-growth.
Aloha, and thank you for taking a look at my profile. When working on our purpose, design, and aim in life, it can at times seem challenging. When we do establish our intention to carry out, planting this and manifesting growth is the next step. I believe we at times have narratives we would like to change. Exploration is key, so as the catalyst for change/growth can occur and our personal journey enhanced.

I am a Registered Play Therapist, I use play and sandtray therapy for children and adolescents to express themselves in other ways than words.
Do you ever feel misunderstood and emotionally stressed; or have you been affected by unexpected life situations (such as Covid 19)? It may be time to talk about some of these stressors in your life. Going through a pandemic and facing natural life challenges can be overwhelming to adults and adolescents. Remotely working and going to school from home has taken us to a point of limited socialization and staying in the confines of our homes to stay healthy. Changes can be difficult for anyone and the uncertainty of this pandemic can be trying and I would like to help.

For 10 +years I've worked with families, individuals and children in the community.
I feel that therapy can be the opportunity to explore our lives on an emotional and collective level. I encourage my clients to discuss what they want to see happen in their life and work with them on developing goals. I use a combination of family structure, emotional focus and family of origin modes of therapy in my practice. I feel that therapy for some can be a vulnerable experience, and I honor that.

I have worked in private practice since 2014 and have experience working with individuals and families that struggle with but not limited to: Substance Abuse, Trauma, PTSD, Sexual Abuse, Domestic Violence, Grief, Mental Health Disorders, Personality Disorders, Familial Stress, Life Transitions, Parenting Issues, Child and Adolescent Therapy, Spiritual Counseling, and Eating Disorders.
The healing process is one that is infinite and the beauty of that rests in the fact that there are an abundance of healing methods and forms of healing. Sourcing the appropriate path is contingent upon our present state and what we need in that particular life moment. I believe that a holistic approach to psychological, emotional, and behavioral issues is the most effective way to reaching the source of our distress. Throughout treatment an individual or family is provided with various coping tools and skills to manage symptoms.

Would you like your teen or child to learn how to manage difficult feelings or change? Many youth are dealing with depression, stress, and anxiety. I specialize in teaching fun tools to manage negative thoughts/feelings in order to feel more empowered and confident in life! These self awareness skills help your child to enjoy more healthy relationships with family and their peers. Your child will learn how to apply a positive growth mindset perspective that they may use the rest of their lives. I enjoy collaborating with parents and also have vast experience working with adults (and their inner child ) to reach their goals too!

I was raised on the beautiful Big Island of Hawai’i and served for years as a high school teacher in Kona. I love working with youth and their families and decided to pursue a graduate degree in mental health counseling to serve this community’s youth in a different way. I specialize in working with children / teens (ages 3-18) and their families, particularly those with a history of trauma. I believe long-term change happens within the family system, and I try to involve parents and caregivers consistently throughout the treatment process because of this.

What type of Hawaii mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Hawaii?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
