I’m a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the State of Hawaii as well as a Licensed Professional Counselor in Arizona. I have over 6 years of experience in the mental health field. My work as a therapist invites people to return to their essential wholeness, to shed false identities and realize the truth of who they really are. Problems are seen as opportunities for life changing insights and awakenings; the doorway to enduring peace and happiness. Stories are seen through and emotions met with the deepest acceptance.
I had lived in Hawaii for over 6 years and graduated with my MS in counseling psychology from Chaminade University of Honolulu. I'm now back living in Phoenix, Arizona where I was born and raised. I’ve worked with a wide variety of populations and cultures of people in Hawaii and in Oregon where I worked with homeless veterans. I’m a military veteran myself and I’ve also served as a municipal firefighter-paramedic in Virginia.
I’ve had a wide-variety of life experiences consisting of many "ups" and some "downs". I’ve learned a lot about life over the years through my own direct insights into the nature of reality and discovering my true nature. These shifts have come from being open and curious in seeing more of the truth behind my human experience and who/what I really am.
I invite you to see the possibility of discovering peace of mind and happiness through the recognition of your true nature.
