About Me

My counseling experience includes working as a school counselor, school behavioral specialist, mental health therapist, Military Family Life Counselor, and college counselor.

I have experience counseling depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, social phobia, eating disorders, oppositional defiant behaviors, substance dependence, attention deficit, learning challenges, and autism. I have worked in crisis situations involving self-harm, harm to others, suicidal ideation, and bereavement. I have also guided young and older adults with academic, college and career counseling.

I am a licensed school counselor, licensed mental health counselor (LMHC) in Hawaii, and a national certified counselor (NCC). My approach toward counseling is solution focused and goal driven. I seek to help people develop abilities to make rational choices. I desire to promote an effective counseling environment of trust and growth.

I LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE working with Robert. He's practical, even keeled, supportive, and is a great listener/witness. I'm so grateful to be working with him!

He also helps me not take myself TOOO seriously :)

Robert is an excellent listener and is great at understanding the person he is speaking with.
He provides support and 100% no judgment, it is very comforting to speak with Robert

I've turned at least three people on to this. One has taken the bait for sure, the others, haven't followed up for privacy reasons. I think this actually works BETTER than going to the office. I'm in MY environment, and this makes for a better transference environment.

Specifically Robert: he gets me ... and just by accident we have a lot of shared life experience, so he doesn't have to work so hard to understand the things I'm dealing with. I've been very successful in dealing with issues of the "now" and issues of the "future"... well they're coming.

this is working very well.

He has been great for me so far. He did identify the problem and kind of motivated me to go about fixing it. I would recommend Robert to other friends and family members as well.

After my 3 interactions with Robert, I can only say I wish I had found him sooner. I was extremely skeptical about seeing a therapist and more fundamentally I was pessimistic about the possibility of being happy. My skepticism is proved baseless. I am now better able to cope with anxiety, he has introduced and suggested coping strategies (ABC Model) to get through difficult times thereby build self confidence and improve relationship at work. Thank you Robert.

Written by J.U. on Jun 20, 2021 after therapy with Robert for 10 months on issues concerning relationship issues, and self esteem

I started counseling 10 months ago and although the main reason for my depression and anxiety disappeared, having a counselor to guide me through my everyday problems is very helpful.

Written by E.M. on Jan 26, 2021 after therapy with Robert for 7 months on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

Robert is a kind and understanding counsellor, I've been talking to him for well over 6 months now, and we've made great progress in that time. He takes the time to really understand you and the position you're in mentally and physically, taking everything into consideration. I would definitely recommend him as a counselor.

Robert is great! He understands the concerns at hand and provides great ways to deal with them!

Written by B.O. on Sep 23, 2020 after therapy with Robert for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, parenting issues, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Robert helped me get out of the really terrible state that I was in for a couple weeks. I hadn't had a very bad depression episode like this in quite sometime, so when it did happen, it hit hard. I felt safe, not judged, sharing my personal details. The things or concepts he had me take into consideration helped me see things in a better light and were realistic. I had gone to a psychiatrist and psychologist several years ago and never went again after seeing their actual notes that they made about me. I had seen them because I had requested my medical records at one point. Horrified, I never sought out any more therapy. But like I said, Robert didn't make me feel ashamed or judged, the trust and safety was a comfort. I am now more open to continuing therapy :)

He is great so far! Really great!
I wish BetterHelp would let me book more than one session per week.

Robert is experienced and knows how to deal with a multitude of situations. He consistently offers valuable advice and had concrete solutions to all of my issues.

Written by B.R. on Aug 05, 2020 after therapy with Robert for 1 month on issues concerning relationship issues, and self esteem

Robert immediately understood my worries and concerns and gave great counseling.
He always answered fast to my messages and was very helpful as it immediately made me feel better and somehow stronger just by the advice he gave or the way he summarized my concerns. it somehow helped structuring it and making it feel less "heavy". Thanks for your support.

Robert is like a long lost friend. Someone you have been looking for a long time. He is easy to talk to, listens attentively with care and provides you with the help you need.
He could make you go deep within your thoughts and locate the source of your unhappiness whilst praising you and your achievements in life and making you feel precious.

Robs awesome! I always had this idea that therapy and counselling was uncomfortably professional. Rob makes it comfortable and speaks to me like a normal person or a friend, not so much a patient

Written by S.O. on Jul 18, 2020 after therapy with Robert for 2 weeks

Robert is always available and constantly offers support and understanding. He is never shy when it comes to insisting for what is best for his patients.
