"I commend you for taking the first step in self-discovery and healing! I invite you to share your feelings and emerge with a "Lighter Heart." I want to hear YOUR story. Does the world often overwhelm you? Do you seem to "feel" things deeply or become easily emotional? Then you may be a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP). HSPs are more prone to over-stimulation, depression, anxiety, addictions and relationship difficulties. As a Highly Sensitive therapist, I can help you to recognize the benefits and hardships of this trait, be more productive, have better relationships, and protect yourself from overwhelm."

"Being our most resilient, healthy self is a process of acceptance and skill building. It is particularly hard when anger, sadness, and worry get in the way of connecting with others, advancing professionally, or maintaining health. It is important to have a safe place to process and solve life transitions without judgment. I utilize evidenced based psychotherapy and assessment to restore value based cognitions, mindfulness and healthy behaviors. Specialized treatment planning is the first stage of the process. Adults, adolescents, couples, and specialized assessment cases (ages 7 to 80+) are encouraged to schedule a consultation appointment."

Over the last 12+ years, I have worked extensively with individuals who struggle with depression, anxiety, trauma, eating disorders, and substance use. Additionally, my work with couples includes examining how old patterns of behavior (e.g. how intimacy was for our parents, excessive substance use) prevent us from having healthy, strong and secure bonds. As a psychologist who has a firm grasp of the research behind effective treatments, I balance warmth, compassion and acceptance with strategies for creating lasting change."

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Kailua Kona, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Kailua Kona are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Kailua Kona you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Kailua Kona and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Kailua Kona or family therapy in Kailua Kona.
