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.

Darryl has the ability to discern my conflicts in terms of relationships, personal development, and career goals ; he's able to break things down in a sense where I can understand and approach my struggles: differently, efficiently, and effectively. I am very privileged to have him as my therapist.

Darryl has become a friend to me rather than just a therapist because I can directly relate to him and we can exchange knowledge and thoughts freely without any doubt of feeling unsafe. He is respectful, and most importantly he is there to listen and sometimes that’s just what we all need
