Hello! I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Substance Abuse Counselor in the State if Hawaii for over the past 6 years.
I have had the privilege and experience of working with a wide range of clients struggling with many different challenges.

I have a mouthful of things I need to talk about and talking about them always helps me so when Brie brought up a certain subject that she suspected needed to be talked about she did and it melted my heart because it was the one thing that I truly needed to talk about. Brie is a gem and very talented at what she does.
