Dawna Bone , PsyD

Aloha!  My name is Dr. Dawna Bone and I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist.  I feel honored to work with you. I am an empathetic listener and can help you to better understand and move through your emotions, thoughts and traumatic memories. I empower my clients to address and overcome obstacles; to face challenges with thoughtfulness, authenticity and courage. I lived and worked as a psychologist in both private practice and in the public school system for the Hawaii Dept of Health on the island of Kauai from 2001-2004.  My love for Hawaii & the people here have never left me and I am happy to be working in this special place again!

I love to work with adolescents, adults, and seniors.  My treatment modalities include a combination of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy).  These therapies assist in reprocessing memories that are causing distressing & repetitive patterns of thinking and behaving.  I help clients to find meaningful ways of relating to their lives and to let go of the past and embrace the possibilities of the future.  I specialize in treatment of PTSD, Bipolar, Depression, Anxiety, and Eating Disorders.  I look forward to supporting you on your healing journey!
