APPROACH TO PSYCHOTHERAPY SERVICES

Taking a non-judgmental and holistic approach that incorporates the mind, body, and emotions, I help to foster healing, resilience, and growth.  Sessions are tailored to your needs using integrative evidence-based treatments.  Various forms of psychotherapy are used to address your unique concerns.  My clinical style is influenced by the work of Hannah Levenson, PhD (relational and psychodynamic), Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD (present-focused and non-judgmental), Steven Hayes, PhD (acceptance-based and non-pathologizing), Aaron Beck, MD, (thought-focused and change-oriented), and Sue Johnson, PhD (attachment-based and emotionally-focused).

As a 2011 nationally selected American Psychological Association Minority Fellow, I am committed to providing culturally sensitive and individually tailored therapy with adolescents, adults, seniors, and couples in Hawaii.
