Taking a non-judgmental and holistic approach, I help foster healing, resilience, and growth.  Sessions are tailored to your needs using evidence-based treatments.  Various forms of psychotherapy are used to address your unique concerns.  My clinical style is primarily 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.
