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.

I am specialized in Attachment-based trauma work.
You crave intimacy, yet you are constantly feeling hurt and frustrated in relationships; You seek purpose in life, yet you feel empty and numb inside most of the time; You are trying to get rid of the past, yet the trauma legacy is haunting you to the present. You understand the benefits of psychotherapy, yet you want to make sure there is enough safety and stability in the therapy space before you start. If it sounds like you, I believe I can help.

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, I provide telehealth services and am licensed to practice in the state of Hawaii. I believe that counseling can provide a space in which we get to know ourselves, our needs, and motivations. Often we are making important decisions that impact the quality of our lives without really knowing what are driving those choices. Counseling can be a great space to approach ourselves and our choices with curiosity and compassion. By tending to our internal process we can start untangling ourselves from the stuck places and painful patterns we can find ourselves in.

Everyone has a story. I want to hear yours. My experience as a therapist has led me to find this approach as a very effective one in bringing the transformation that people seek. Many of my patients have been surprised at how comfortable yet profound the therapeutic process has been for them. Yes, it does take hard work and personal commitment. But you won't be doing this alone. I am trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy, viewing our therapeutic relationship as central to the change process.

Welcome! If you are going through difficulties in your relationships and social life, I can help you understand and find healing in these areas. I also help with self-esteem and identity issues by understanding where these feelings come from and working towards greater confidence and self-acceptance. We can do this by reconnecting with your childhood in a way that is healing and releasing. If your life has been marked by trauma or overwhelming experiences, I consider how your body holds trauma and work at both verbal and nonverbal levels to help you resolve these issues.

Have you ever found yourself overwhelmed and not sure how to deal with the unexpected situations life has thrown your way? Life can surprise us with situations that we may at times least expect. This may lead to us experiencing a variety of emotions that may leave us feeling stuck and often times hurt. I offer a safe, honest, non-judgmental, and culturally sensitive environment, which I believe is essential to the therapeutic healing journey and to building a trusting therapeutic relationship.

Finding the right therapist can be difficult and overwhelming. I understand that it takes courage to be vulnerable, so I’ll meet you with compassion and empathy. As a trauma therapist, I am aware that we sometimes experience stuck points caused by our adverse experiences and have difficulty thriving in our daily lives. These experiences can lead us to become burdened with symptoms of depression, anxiety, guilt, shame, and self-destructive behaviors. As a result, we may develop maladaptive or unhealthy coping skills. Together, I can assist you in learning the emotional skills to relieve your anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem.

Life takes us for turns we don't expect and sometimes we’re able to get through them, but in other times, we can become stuck. We may feel overwhelmed at work, in our marriage, or in other relationships. Perhaps, there are difficulties with a teenager at home or maybe there are feelings of sadness or anxiousness. When life brings us to this point, reaching out for help is a courageous first step toward change. Entering therapy can provide clarity to the confusion and is a safe place to explore alternative avenues toward an improved quality of life.

I think of therapy as a venue where it's an honor to explore experiences with diverse people. I know that issues are challenging to live with, and I strive to allow people a safe, nurturing, supportive environment in which to explore challenges, meaning, and existence with empathy and compassion. I value seeing and exploring with people in creating their true identities, assisting people in finding their "voice" and to stand in truth. I'm always mindful that a person is not in isolation, but is part of a community with diverse perspectives, morals, and values.

One of the most courageous things you can do is to begin to understand your own story. Life is too short to feel disconnected in your relationships. To be disempowered by past trauma, stuck, and questioning yourself. Alone struggling or feeling frustrated parenting your children. We all deserve support and care. To wake up refreshed, whole, knowing our worth, and feeling a deep connection to those we love. You deserve this, and therapy can help.

What type of Honolulu 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 Honolulu?
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.
