About me

Aloha, I am a licensed clinical social worker in Hawaii with over 12 years of experience providing therapy and psychoeducation. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including stress, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, grief and loss, career challenges, self-esteem/confidence, major life changes, physical trauma , and emotional abuse, among others. I have also worked extensively with military and their families and understand the military culture.

I use a warm, interactive therapy style. I believe in mutual respect and building trust to facilitate learning new tools, strategies, and ways of thinking to improve your life and empower your future. I combine various approaches like cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and mindfulness therapy based on your specific needs. Clients have said I make them feel heard and understood. Others have reported appreciating my fair, honest, challenging, yet kind approach. And still others, who were once skeptics, stated our work together turned them into believers that therapy can actually work.

If any of this resonates with you, I would be happy to be your partner in change.
I look forward to working with you!

Michele knows that I appreciate her very much. She no doubt has many clients, but she always remembers what we talked about, what my issues and concerns have been and demonstrates that she has been thinking about them. I've been in therapy on many occasions over 30 years and this is both an important and a not frequently encountered trait. She also offers points of view and suggestions that challenge my inner myths; I love that. Also: this form of therapy fits my very busy schedule and I appreciate that, too.

Michele is a phenomenal therapist! She always responds to my messages in a timely matter, and very quickly if it’s an emergency. My sessions with her have really helped me work through and process different life events. She gives amazing insights and has asked questions that really made me rethink why I act and react the way I do. With Michele’s help, I’ve made really great strides in changing my lifestyle so I’m both happier and more fulfilled (way less overwhelmed and anxious!).

Michele is already making a great impact on my life. She listens, really, really listens and has helped me identify the root causes of my feelings. I also feel she is extremely well educated and shares that education with me when processing my emotions. I can’t thank her enough for her help, and highly recommend her to anyone who needs a non-judgemental neutral third party to help sift through life :). She is great!

Michele is truly amazing. Literally the best therapist I have ever spoke with. If I had a more open schedule during the day, I would talk to her daily!!!!!
