About Me

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside of you.” - Maya Angelou

I believe one of the bravest things you can ever do is the work of understanding your own story. Because of that, I'm passionate about helping people find freedom and growth by rewriting the parts of their stories that have left them with a negative self image.

I am gentle and non-judgmental, but straightforward. I believe that therapy is a collaborative process, where our relationship is a safe space to explore pain, shame, and trauma. I also believe that our struggles are opportunities for learning and growth. Understanding our stories deepens and reshapes our lives, and I can’t wait to hear yours.

I recently transitioned to private practice after leaving a residential substance use treatment facility where I facilitated and managed the LGBTQIA+ programming. I am an affirming therapist who understands the core issues of trauma, violence, family of origin, and internal/external homophobia that are related to gender and sexual identity.

Kana is amazing. She is attentive and non judgemental. She knows exactly what I need and has kept me engaged and focused. I'm so glad she is my counselor.

Kana has been an absolutely wonderful part of my life, and has helped me a lot in the short time that we were able to work together. She really helped me come up with strategies and ways of thinking in terms of caring for myself so I can better care for others, and not being so self-critical. She has a truly wonderful perspective on life and on relationships, and I am very grateful I got to learn from her. Thank you Kana!

Kana is so easy to talk to and makes me feel completely at ease. I feel like I’m speaking in four different languages sometimes, and she’s the perfect translator. I feel respected, listened to, and understood.

Kana helped me immensely over short period of time which we had a chance to work together. I learned how to be more patient with myself and appreciate my own boundaries and respect my limitations without trying to push myself too far or too hard before I am actually ready. I will be forever grateful for her effort and her kind heart. Thank you so very much, Kana. Much love and blessings.

In the 3 visits, I feel that this therapist has come to understand my mental balance better than any other person I've tried to work with before. I don't utilize the texting option as much as I could, but having a video service is so convenient and gives me a comfortable space and environment to build myself up.

Kana is WONDERFUL! So easy to open up to and discuss issues. She gives me tools and resources for me to utilize in my day to day life to help better ME! Kana is genuinely concerned about getting to the root of issues and starting the work/healing process from the bottom.

Kana is a very kind lady and her kindness and encouragement has help me tremendously. I feel that she understands me and although I have only had two sessions with her, I look forward to speaking with her and I look forward to the journey.

Most times when people need therapy they need help figuring out the Why or How. Why is this happening. Why do I feel like this. How did it get this bad. Every time I've gone for help that's what the therapist tried to do for me, when I already knew all of it. I already know the Why, I already know the How; I just couldn't figure out how to get passed that. No one else understood that or, if they did, they didn't have the right tools to help me move on. Talking to Kana is probably the first time I didn't have to explain any of that because she already figured it out based on how I spoke, how I answered questions. And it's relieving. I'm not "better", but I have confidence for the first time in a while that there might actually be light at the end of the tunnel. Maybe I'll get better, maybe I won't, but at least now I have a chance. That means something.
