I’ve witnessed the therapeutic process help many people from all walks of life. When I say “help”, I mean the small changes that make the difference between feeling depressed, tired, lonely, and numb to feeling re-connected to yourself, your purpose, your sense of hope, and the people you love. The changes that lead you from worrying, obsessing, and “freaking out” everyday to every other day or week or month instead (your nervous system needs a break!) and gradually to a place of peace. The emotional, spiritual, and mental changes that will get you through the deep, difficult, and challenging periods of your life.
Life can be heavy. At times it feels as though we struggle with the same issues over and over again. Family, purpose, relationships and the satisfaction of our basic needs all float around us in a delicate balance. When these things feel out of our control they can easily overwhelm us. As a therapist, I am here to help you feel more effective in taking control of your life. We are far more capable than we know and can accomplish incredible things when we have a clear view of who we are. Therapy can help you reengage with your sense of purpose.
We all face challenges in our lives, whether in relationships, life transitions, family conflicts, or difficulties in managing our emotions. Professional help can be the first vital step in making a change. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I work with individuals, couples, and families to transform their lives and relationships. My goal is to work collaboratively with you to explore the shifts needed to launch you into a life filled with satisfaction and fulfillment.
Psychotherapy is a shared process that requires thoughtful dialog and trust. Successful therapy creates healthy lifestyle changes and fosters physical, emotional, cognitive, relational, spiritual, and financial wellbeing. I will take the time to understand your experience and practice accordingly. I believe the best person to determine whether therapy is working is you. By creating a safe and genuine relationship, we can develop focused goals and strategies that support growth, healing, and inner peace.
The process of seeking therapy is one of courage and strength. I am honored to be on the receiving end of that process and find it a privilege to provide you with a safe, accepting, and nurturing environment where I will take the time to hear and understand your concerns. I truly believe that this is the best way for us to develop a genuine, trusting relationship. This will help us work together to develop your goals and strategies to help you understand yourself, your thought processes, interpersonal relationships, and improve your quality of life.
Being born and raised in Hawaii and going through the public school system made me aware of the challenges we all face at various stages in our lives. Whether it is anxiety from life transitions, low self-esteem that became depression, or behavioral issues that lead to diagnoses, I'd like to help you improve your quality of life and find your true self. We will look at where the current view of yourself and others came from and how this has impacted your ability to emotionally regulate in stressful situations. Together, we will figure out the goals that you want to achieve and a guide on how to get there.
Aloha! My name is Dr. Isaiah Moreno and I offer supportive therapy that encourages awareness, hope, and change.

As we build a collaborative relationship, our hope is that we can offer an encounter, where people can create a corrective emotional experience through therapy. I encourage clients to find a therapist with the right "fit," where they feel that the story of their lives can be held with the deepest care and respect.

Regardless of age, social status, or family of origin, the way we feel about ourselves affects the way we see the world, experience our lives, and manage our relationships. Having local roots but being born and raised in "the big city" on the mainland, I know from experience what it's like growing up with a variety of obstacles and needing to navigate the sometimes fearsome and foreboding world. These experiences have fueled my present day commitment to help others stand up, have hope, and see possibilities.

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.
