About me

Aloha and welcome on your journey to wellness. My name is Darryl Khan, and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in the state of Hawaii. I have been practicing as a mental health counselor for over 19 years. In 2003 I obtained my master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from Gonzaga University and since then I have served local populations experiencing challenges including chronic mental illnesses, romantic relationship and family dysfunction, and substance use disorders. My areas of specialty include treatment of depression, anxiety, life transitions, trauma, and abuse.

During my career, I have worked with and understand the challenges of individuals involved with institutions such as Child Welfare Services, Family Courts, and the Public Safety Department. I have also empowered individuals using cognitive behavior therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, client-centered therapy, and solution-focused therapy to restore mental health, recover from addiction and improve their quality of life.

I am certified in cognitive behavioral therapy using the Common Elements Treatment Approach (CETA) and I am also certified to provide dialectical behavior therapy. My counseling style is interactive, culturally sensitive, and compassionate. I welcome the opportunity to know, journey and work with you.

Darryl was very attentive and approachable as a therapist. He was able to be flexible and adjust to what I wanted to address during each session, and empowered me to take the lead about what I wanted to talk about. He gave very grounded advice and perspectives regarding the issues I was facing. Would definitely recommend Darryl to others.

Darryl Khan was a pleasure to work with. I only had two sessions with him and had to change because I was moving but I would have stayed with him if I could. Very good at communicating, giving you actionable advice, and giving you perspectives that you will ponder through the week.

Darryl has been an upwelling source of encouragement, deep connectedness to the Oneness, an encourager and witness to the transformation of my inner and outer world. I can not recommend him enough to my fellow life travelers. Thank you Darryl.
