Therapist Maita Marks Photo

About Me

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist licensed in Hawaii with over 3 years of experience working as a psychotherapist and life coach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting and couples problems, and especially experienced in substance use disorders with dual diagnosis. I was also a former Registered Behavior Technician for ten years working with children with special needs.

My style in therapy is genuine, warm and client-oriented. I work within my ethical boundaries. I am culturally sensitive. My approach is ecclectic where I use various interventions from Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Gottman Method for couples. I adapt my interventions according to my clients' goals and needs.

I applaud you for reaching out for help. Allow me to be alongside your journey to be well as a whole person.

I look forward to working with you!

Maita is warm, kind, funny, and understanding. She challenges me and prioritizes the issues I have brought up to her through various therapeutic techniques. I would highly recommend Maita to anyone seeking an experienced and professional therapist.

Maita is very friendly and positive. She is an easy person to talk and relate to. So far she seems non judgemental and kind
