Are you riding high on the waves of Makaha, the same waves that play host to surf competitions every year in this small town? Or are you perpetually sitting on the beach, wishing you could feel the exhilaration of the water, but too afraid to do so? Life can feel that way. It can be enjoyed to its fullest, or it can be completely avoided. For most of us, it's a little mix of both.

If you're struggling with mental wellness issues, you may have trouble living your best life. Reach out to a mental health professional today so you can get the support you need to start living your life to its fullest again.

6 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Nashville. I earned my Master of Social Work degree, specializing in mental health, from the University of Southern California. I have worked with individuals who have a variety of physical disabilities and mental health concerns such as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, personality disorders and polysubstance abuse. I also have experience working with LGBT individuals, offering counseling for interpersonal relationship issues and other life stressors including trauma/abuse and stress management. Additionally, I have worked with individuals and couples to attain skills that foster healthy development of peer, romantic partnership, marriage and family relationships. Counseling can be a vital component of a person’s whole health, as it supports understanding of one’s own life experiences that have a direct influence on each person’s continuing journey. My approach to counseling is collaborative. I encourage everyone to consider counseling with a skilled clinician whose experience and therapeutic style is a suitable fit for his or her needs. Through counseling, individuals can gain valuable support and learn tools to manage the daily stressors of life. I enjoy helping my clients navigate their life paths. I would be honored to have the opportunity to work with you!

Hello! I am James Ruby and I am grateful that you have taken a few minutes to look at my profile. I hope we have the opportunity to work together to help you reach your goals! I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) and a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC). I did my MA at Northeastern IL University in Chicago, IL and my PhD at Loyola University in Chicago. I have been working with individuals, couples, and families since 1998. I would imagine that you might want to know a bit about how I work, what I believe about the counseling process, etc. Let me try and give you some information that will help you make the best decision for you, you and your partner, or you and your family... I believe that our past is important, but it doesn't define us. We are shaped by our past and we can learn from it, but we are the authors of our own lives. So, we can write a new chapter for ourselves that will better enable us to reach our goals. Sometimes, our ways of thinking can get in our way. We might have learned some things early in life that no longer seem to work for us. These thoughts and beliefs can feel like "the truth," but they really are only thoughts and beliefs. They can change. We can change. We can grow. We can thrive! I also believe that we humans are complex beings, with multiple dimensions to our lives - the cognitive, emotional, physical, and spiritual, to name a few. All of those dimensions can work for us, or against us, so I like to help my counseling clients look at all of those dimensions. Within each of us is a wealth of knowledge and strength that our problems can make us forget. I like to help my clients tap into that knowledge and activate those strengths. So, I occasionally ask my clients to complete questionnaires or do some "homework" between sessions that helps them move in the direction they would like to go. I would be privileged to have the opportunity to help you reach your goals. I know what it feels like to have the weight of sadness, anxiety, or frustration keep you down. I work in a judgment free atmosphere, so there is no need to feel excessive guilt or shame. In fact, those things can get in our way. I have helped many people get through their most difficult days and come out on the other side, ready to live the life they deserve. I'd love to have the chance to do the same for you. If you have any questions for me, I welcome them. I want you to find the best match for you and your counseling needs.

Aloha! I am delighted that you found me! I am a clinical social worker and an educator, deeply committed to embrace and empower those I work with towards living fuller, richer lives. I offer individuals a safe, supportive, encouraging, non-judgmental, and nurturing space where they may explore and grow. I help clients, by empowering them to take charge of their lives. My role is to illuminate the path to their ideal future. As a therapist, I draw inspiration from many sources, and have found that an integration of approaches and practices that are uniquely curated to each person and family tend to be especially effective in bringing about truly meaningful and sustainable change. As an EMDR trained therapist, I help clients process painful life experiences that continue to impact them. EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) is a well-researched, integrative approach, that has been proven effective for the treatment of trauma. It utilizes the innate growth and healing mechanisms of the human nervous system. Clients report that they have received amazing benefits from EMDR. There is nothing more powerful for clearing trauma, abuse, and associated symptoms, including anxiety, depression, stress and grief. I also offer other therapeutic modalities, such as solution focused and psychodynamic therapy. With a Jungian perspective and being an educator of myth, I often integrate myths, archetypes, and dreamwork into my clinical work. It takes courage to face and embrace change. I believe that we are wired for wellness and integration, and that our innate resilience and ability to heal is greater than we can fathom. I help clients create relationships where they are comfortable enough to grow. It is through authentic relationships that we find the strength to dream big. I offer my expertise and guidance to help connect clients to that which they hold as most important. You deserve to receive competent, non-judgmental, and compassionate guidance when reaching for those goals. My services are personalized to suit individual needs. Let me assist you in discovering the depths of your personal power and positive change towards a more fulfilling and happier life.Together we can find deep and meaningful connection and insight, find joy, trust, and grow. Let’s begin the process of healing!

Hi. My name is Kameron Apostol-Chinn, LCSW. I am a firm believer that everyone on earth needs to put work into themselves, because we've all had our own life experiences and hang-ups. We ALL have something that we need to work on, and it's OK. I believe that healing and growth can happen for everyone. I also believe that, "the more we share, the more we heal". Addressing ourselves and our past is not easy, but it is always worth it in the long run. I am an Air Force Veteran with one tour to Afghanistan. I spent 11 years working in the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), with six of those years providing counseling. During my time with the VA I had worked with Active Duty Military, National Guard, Reserve, and Veterans dealing with Combat PTSD, anger, anxiety, depression, nightmares, and readjustment issues. Also worked with Male and Female Veterans who have experienced Sexual Trauma. I've also gotten the chance to work with spouses of Military members and Veterans. In my time counseling and in social work, I've been able to work with individuals dealing with a number of other issues and experiences, as well. I've been able to help people address their childhood trauma, including verbal, emotional, physical, and sexual abuse. I've had the opportunity to work with individuals of all ages, sexes, nationalities, cultural and geographical backgrounds, sexual orientations, etc. I'm looking forward to working, together, with you.

I am a Clinical Social Worker licensed to practice in the state of Hawai'i. With over twenty years of professional experience, I help adults cope more effectively with a variety of concerns, including, but not limited to, stress, anxiety, depression, grief, post-traumatic stress (military deployment, abuse), and various life changes. I collaborate with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. My therapy style and approach are wide-ranging in nature and are largely influenced by evidenced-based treatments that challenge and change unhelpful thought patterns and behaviors (Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy) and promote skills training in the areas of being present-focused, improving social interactions, managing/tolerating distress, and controlling emotions (Dialectical Behavior Therapy). My experience is varied as I have provided therapy to civilians, active-duty service members, and Veterans in traditional outpatient and residential settings, as well as, remotely via telehealth services. My passion is to meet my clients where they are and to assist them with getting to where they want to be. Taking the first step to achieving a more enriching and satisfying life takes courage. I am here to support my clients along that process.

How to find a therapist for counseling in Makaha

Finding the best therapist close by in Makaha can feel challenging, but know that once you narrow your search for a counselor serving your area, you can find a therapist in your city that is accepting new clients and fits your goals. Whether you're struggling with depression, anxiety, marriage, family issues, or other emotional challenges, feel proud that you have begun your search to find the mental health care services in Makaha that work best for you in order to begin your personal journey towards emotional healing with a therapist.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Makaha. Perhaps you're interested in narrowing your search for a psychotherapist that can offer psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), talk therapy, provide group therapy, marriage and family therapy for individuals or couples, or couples therapy. Each type of therapy can offer various benefits and address or treat different disorders. If you're still unsure or are new to counseling in Makaha, feel free to contact the provider via email to find out which methods they practice.

It is also important to understand that mental health professionals in the United States are accredited to provide care, helping individuals and couples, with a variety of licenses. These include licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), and clinical psychologist or doctor of psychology (PsyD). Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy in the Makaha region and in the state of Hawaii. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in Makaha or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns. A therapist may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain, or that simply want a psychological assessment. Verified providers can provide licensed marriage and couples therapy, tailor to individual needs, and create a therapeutic relationship as a National Certified Counselor.

There are all kinds of therapists working with clients today across the United States and in the greater Makaha area in different types of therapy, including:

  • CBT
  • DBT
  • Substance use therapy
  • Couples therapy

When you're ready to start your search and find Makaha therapists, have in mind what type of therapy you'd like your provider to be most experienced with and choose an experienced provider with a practice located near you in the city of Makaha, elsewhere in Honolulu, or in the greater state of Hawaii.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs) about therapists and mental health services

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Makaha area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Makaha therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Makaha due to a higher cost of living. The price also depends on the type of provider you are looking for. See the following average prices for various mental health providers without insurance:

  • Counseling with a psychiatrist: $150-$500
  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

While many psychologists in Makaha may not take health insurance, some in the state of Hawaii may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With a BetterHelp therapist throughout the state of Hawaii you can expect significantly more affordable options, with sessions ranging from $65 to $100 per week (billed every four weeks). If you're looking for a therapist, Cincinnati offers a variety of professionals who can help with your mental health needs at a price you can afford.

All of these psychology clinicians have a Masters Degree or a Doctorate Degree in their field of psychology sciences, and follow the APA Code of Ethics. They have been qualified and certified by their state's professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice with a patient, and extensive experience in a healthcare clinic or treatment centers, in order to become a mental health provider. While their lived experience, expertise, careers, and background vary, they all possess at least 3 years and 1,000 hours of hands-on experience with adult and sometimes teen patients, and have the necessary therapist credentials to provide a safe space for long lasting emotional healing in therapy. 

Please note BetterHelp does not offer or provide care from Makaha psychiatrists to prescribe a drug or medication as treatment, or perform psychological assessments and other psychiatric services.

You can also try a Makaha therapy provider through BetterHelp's sister platform, ReGain, which is dedicated to couples and spouses worldwide. 

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in Makaha?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Makaha therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

Makaha therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of Makaha therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Makaha therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words with a psychotherapist.

With a lot of people in HI, therapists may be booked out with clients. Through the list of profiles above and others within BetterHelp's team, you may be able to find a psychologist within 24 to 48 hours. If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 96792 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help from therapists in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Makaha counselor?

Before seeing your Makaha therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Makaha.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A Makaha licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a Makaha counselor can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health therapist has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Makaha, Hawaii can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Makaha has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions during telehealth appointments?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
