I am a licensed clinical psychologist in Hawaii, with over 10 years of experience in clinical practice. My professional interests include severe and persistent mental illness, trauma disorders and PTSD, mood disorders, perinatal mood disturbance, and forensic issues in clinical psychology. I have enjoyed working in a variety of clinical settings, including the Juvenile Justice System, Community Mental Health, State Hospital System, and now in private practice. I have worked with patients experiencing a range of clinical concerns; from serious mental health conditions like schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, to those who are going through a difficult time and are looking for extra support on a short-term basis.
My therapeutic style tends to be warm and genuine, meeting you where you are at emotionally with compassion and understanding. I gravitate toward Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) interventions, but I am also trained in additional methods and therapeutic styles. I am open to working with you in the therapeutic manner that suits your needs.
Psychotherapy is an effective tool to solve emotional issues and thus deserves a special place in one's life. If you are brave enough to take that step, I want you to know you are never alone in this journey. You will begin to feel better. Maybe not right away........ but you will. I hope I can help you get there.
