Announcement icon I have immediate openings for tele-therapy (video or phone sessions) and would be honored to support you during this time.
I’ve been a practicing social worker for over 40 years. My personal and professional belief is that how well people function is about how they process their life events. Through resiliency, the healthy tools they have learned or will learn and the belief in oneself, self-forgiveness and self-acceptance can emerge. As a result, people can learn to be their better selves. I help people identify what’s working in their life, what they are proud of, and what they like about themselves. We will identify past tools that have been effective, and begin the process of healing and change.
I work from a psychodynamic approach and have experience in working with many presentations of mental health issues, including depression, bipolar disorders, anxiety related disorders, grief, including pet loss, and past or present trauma. I’ve worked with people who have experienced physical, emotional, and/or psychological trauma in a family setting.
I work with teens through seniors, individually, as couples, families or in group settings. I feel honored when someone lets me into their life to be of assistance. I am currently contracted through Pau Hana Counseling. Please call Pau Hana Counseling, LLC to set up an appointment. https://www.pauhanacounseling.com/
