I believe that each individual is doing the best they can, and that given empathy, unconditional positive regard and respect they can come to a greater sense of self-acceptance leading to a better functioning life. My approach is tailored to the individual, using humanistic, mindfulness and cognitive behavioral elements to facilitate the best outcomes.

Acceptance and Commitment therapy (ACT) uses mindfulness practice, fun mental exercises, symbolic stories and self-exploration to help you disentangle from your thoughts, make space for your feelings, and realize what you truly want to do.
Have you tried counseling before and still feel stuck? Do you believe your state of mind is holding you back? Don't give up! We come to counseling seeking relief from painful thoughts and emotions. We fear something is WRONG with us. EVERYONE struggles with mental distress but that doesn’t mean we are mentally ill. Suffering is a part of the human condition that all people share. We get lost in our heads and emotions overwhelm us. But suppressing thoughts and feelings only makes them stronger. What else can we do? We can look AT our thoughts instead of acting FROM them. We can accept our feelings and move beyond our pain.

My approach is mindfulness-based, in that I believe that mind, body, and spirit are all connected, and healing cannot be broken down into component parts.
What is psychotherapy, and why would you want to receive it? For me, psychotherapy is communication. It is a means of reflecting you back to yourself in a way that is instructive, enlightening, and healing. If you are experiencing low self-esteem, depression, thoughts of suicide, post-traumatic stress, anxiety, or fearfulness about the future, you could benefit from psychotherapy.

Aloha, and thank you for taking a look at my profile. When working on our purpose, design, and aim in life, it can at times seem challenging. When we do establish our intention to carry out, planting this and manifesting growth is the next step. I believe we at times have narratives we would like to change. Exploration is key, so as the catalyst for change/growth can occur and our personal journey enhanced.

Aloha-Namaste. Thank you for taking a moment to pause. To be the change I wished to see in the world, I learned how to transform my gravestones (traumatic experiences) into stepping stones (growth). Given the opportunity, I hope to earn your trust so we may walk down a similar pathway. Until you find momentum and will power, I will be honored to hold a sacred space for you. Let us, together, practice "ho’oku’u" – to release (our burdens) to resume being a whole person. It is time. E Komo Mai / Swagatam.

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.

Are you feeling exhausted and stressed? Struggling to think positively, manage your emotions, and take care of yourself, the house, kids, work, marriage, and a never-ending to-do list? Has it been hard to adjust to changes and deal with uncertainty? Maybe you’ve been more irritable, angry, negative, sad, or anxious. You’ve tried, but you can’t seem to be consistent enough for things to improve. So you cope in unhealthy ways: overeating, over drinking, medicating, overspending, scrolling, binge watching, OR overworking, over exercising, over analyzing, being obsessive compulsive.....and then, you feel worse.

I tend to meet people when they are trying their hardest, but still not able to get where they want to go, be who they want to be, or do what they want to do. This goes for kids, teens and adults. We are social creatures, wired to connect, and our most devastating challenges and profound healing comes in relationship.

I consider the therapeutic relationship as being a partnership developed with my clients. My primary theoretical orientation is "person in environment" or systems theory. It is a client-centered approach that utilizes a bio-psycho-social-spiritual perspective or holistic approach to explore and transform problematic behaviors, unresolved issues and challenging life transitions. My approach to therapy includes the use of cognitive behavioral, psycho-dynamic, existential, and action-oriented therapeutic methods.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients in Pahoa with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.

Mindfulness Based therapists in Pahoa can help with issues like anxiety and depression in their role as Pahoa MBCT therapists.
