I feel privileged to take individuals on their remarkable journey of healing. I help people to gain insight into their gifts, to understand their pain and to heal their wounds. This healing leads my clients back to a feeling of wholeness. It is such an honor to witness this transformation as individuals experience the fullness of life. I love working with people from different backgrounds and diversities. I believe every human being has the ability to reach their full potential and challenge themselves to overcome their fears. As a Native Hawaiian, I believe the worth of every soul is great and can be nurtured to thrive.
I use a variety of therapeutic techniques combining skills-based therapy with deep trauma healing. I provide Individual, Group, Couple’s and Family therapy, working with individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, mood dysregulation, low self esteem, anger, suicidal ideation and trauma. I also work individuals who are in recovery from addiction. I am trained in Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS), Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and I weave in mindfulness, meditation, relaxation, visualization and breathing techniques.
I specialize in individual, couples, group and family therapy with all ages. The most important piece to therapy is the connection between therapist and client. Trust leads the ability to settle into the healing. I weave in multiple approaches, including Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy, Structural Family Therapy, Genogram, Family Systems Therapy, Scripting/Role Playing, communication skills and mindfulness techniques.
