Aloha, I understand your fears,appreciate your courage, and have compassion for your emotional suffering. It is intimidating to trust a guide as you face your fears and commit to meaningful and lasting change. Much of our unhealthy behavior is compulsive; driven by unconscious fears, worrying, resentment, and defensiveness. We compulsively eat, drink, shop, or control others in an attempt to soothe or avoid unresolved feelings. Years of conditioning through criticism and negativity fostered the anxiety and depression. You may feel alone and misunderstood. I have decades of life experience, education, and rigorous training to instill that trust you can depend on.

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.

'Creating Choices; Finding Resilience' describes my underlying philosophy. I have been doing psychotherapy for 30+ years in Hawaii and other places. Couples counseling, parenting issues, loss, individual issues, such as depression, anxiety, postpartum depression, or past trauma, ADHD or other child centered issues--we embark on a journey together to find a better path and tap into the resilience within each of us. Our rapidly changing world makes it difficult to know what path to follow. Military families face especially daunting situations. I am flexible, compassionate and open to challenges, no matter what your journey may be.

Stress is a natural reaction to challenges with work, school, relationships and loss. When sadness, worry, concentration problems, or other disruptions result, talking to a trained professional often helps. Foremost in my philosophy is that people are fundamentally good and have the natural ability to grow toward their fullest potential. An objective, trained professional can often provide a catalyst for successful adaptation to life's challenges. It is a privilege, honor, and responsibility to work with others toward their personal goals of enhancing health, productivity, and the enjoyment of life!

Oftentimes, people are uncomfortable taking the first step to speak to a stranger about personal issues. However, once coming in for therapy, many people find it comforting to have a safe place to speak freely...with a therapist who is there to listen to them and guide them through life's difficulties. I practice with a non-judgmental approach to help my clients to reach their therapeutic goals. It is important that my clients feel comfortable with me in order for them to openly discuss the deeper issues affecting their lives.

People seek therapy for many reasons. Some are in situations in life that are too difficult to deal with alone. Others find themselves repeating patterns that do not serve them well, and want to live a more full, satisfying life. Talking with someone with whom you can connect can help, and is often the beginning of rich personal growth. I create a space for you where you are comfortable enough to explore; where you can feel safe, grounded, and begin to trust in taking chances and moving in new directions. Please note: I am only taking new clients who wish to pursue Radix somatic work (www.radix.org)

While vulnerable, healthy people seek therapy because not avoiding and recognizing you need support, is a sign of strength. I provide therapy to people coping with life changes, relationship stressors, loss, trauma, depression/anxiety, infertility, health issues, parenting, or job challenges (including the military). It's important to find a therapist with skill and training, however positive outcomes in therapy largely depend on the relationship you build.

Restoring relationships, discovering identity, reclaiming hope, rebuilding from brokenness, and empowering lasting healing. That is the heart of counseling for me--I LOVE COUNSELING! By implementing empirically-sound and well-researched methods to bridge together the emotional, intellectual, physical, spiritual, and relational parts of self, it is possible to live out a more fulfilling, integrated, and authentic existence. Therapy is an investment: if you do the hard work, you will reap the dividends. It would be my privelege to journey alongside you.
