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 had not done therapy for any prolonged period of time. This was mostly due to never finding someone I really felt that I was coing away with tangible results and saw change. With Robert I am finally getting some actionable suggestions and I come away feeling like progress has been made and I can see the results in my everyday life.

We connect very well. I can't believe how much improvement I've made in the last year on the things we've been working on. Interestingly, it's not really what I THOUGHT we'd be working on, but that's thanks to Robert's leadership.

Great session so far, great listener and after the first session you can feel he truly is a talented therapist and makes you have a healthier understanding of certain issues.

Written on Jun 21, 2022 after therapy with Robert for 1 year and 11 months on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

I strongly recommend Robert as a therapist, I have been working with him for the last 2 years, and since then I have made great progress with my mental health. The fact alone I can say it and mean it, is proof in itself. Robert listens intently and takes everything you tell him on board, then uses his experience and expertise, to work with you to help reach your goals in a way which is best for you.
I highly recommend Robert.

Robert is calm, friendly and easy to talk to. I have always had a lot of trouble opening up about my feelings but it comes very naturally when talking with Robert.

Good listener and keeps the power with you

Robert is absolutely wonderful! I would highly recommend him to anyone. He has a great amount of experience and wisdom. Exceeded my expectations of therapy, especially on a digital platform! I dealt with tendencies of overthinking, anxious thought patterns, and some perfectionism. Robert taught me many strategies, tools, and quotes that I can easily carry with me. He is so kind and a great listener. He remembered all the details. I feel so much better, and I am so grateful for all of his help!

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 :)

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.

Amazing, imposable to put in to words.

Written 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.

Robert is great

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

Written 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 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.

Written on Jul 19, 2020 after therapy with Robert for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and coaching

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 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.

Work with me!
