About

Making the decision to begin therapy/counseling is a big step, and I truly understand and respect the bravery and vulnerability that it takes for clients to reach out to a prospective therapist. Over the past 22 years, I have successfully helped thousands of individual adults, adolescents, children, couples and families to heal from issues related to anxiety, depression, difficulty concentrating, family and couple relationships, divorce, infertility, parenting, adoption, addiction, self-esteem, bullying, life transitions, grief, trauma, and adverse childhood events.
Providing certified, HIPAA-compliant teletherapy/virtual visits to clients throughout Hawaii and California since 2016. I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional and I draw from a wide variety of interventions, including traditional talk therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness techniques and mind-body modalities to facilitate healing.
My clinical style is warm, down-to earth, empathetic, nonjudgmental, and strength-based. In addition to traditional in-person sessions, I also offer HIPAA-compliant online, face-to-face tele-therapy sessions to my clients. I am happy to offer a complimentary phone consultation to prospective new clients and I look forward to hearing from you.
