Enhancing emotional health and overall wellness. Healing relationships.

Using technology and creativity to provide youth, adults, couples, and families with increased convenience and access to therapeutic care.

MY PHILOSOPHY

Each one of us is in a constant state of evolution. As we live out our personal stories, we will inevitably experience phases of contentment and joy, turmoil and darkness, and all that exists in between. Nurturing our spirit and emotional wellbeing allows us to expand our capacity for self-reflection, self-awareness, and meaning-making, thereby paving the way for living a more authentic and fulfilling life. 

The decision to enter therapy takes a great deal of courage and vulnerability, and also indicates that you have arrived to a place of recognizing that you do not have to be alone. Particularly during periods of great struggle, we can feel isolated and directionless in our experience and not where to turn or what to do. We are relational beings who are inherently designed to share our experiences—from celebration and sorrow—in connection with others. As a human, I understand suffering. As a therapist, my intention is to honor every part of your humanness and walk alongside you in a manner that helps illuminate your inner resources so that you experience an enhanced sense of empowerment, skillfulness, and joyful living.

MY PRACTICE

I work with individuals, couples, and families on Maui, helping to guide and accompany them on the path towards healing, wellness, and joy. 

 

 

 

Additionally, I provide Telemental Health (distance/video counseling) services to individuals and couples in Washington, Oregon, and throughout the Hawaiian Islands. I have a passion for working with fellow HI therapists who, due to the unique challenges of living in small communities, may feel hesitant about seeking therapy locally with someone who is also a professional colleague. My focus and ambition is centered on connecting within and beyond my immediate community to reach those who may otherwise have difficulty obtaining the therapeutic assistance and support that they desire, or who simply prefer this method of therapy due to the comfort and convenience that it offers. There are countless sacrifices that we make as we travel through life, and attending to our own emotional wellness and personal growth process does not need to be one of them!
