Q: How do I make an appointment?
A. You may contact me via phone #(808) 223-5373 to schedule an appointment.
Q: What days and times do you offer therapy appointments?
A. Weekday appointments are available. I do not offer evening or weekend appointments at this time.
Q: What can I expect when beginning therapy with you?
A. Sessions are typically 50-60 minutes. During the first 1-3 sessions, you will have the opportunity to explore issues bringing you in to therapy. I may ask questions about yourself including your history, relationships, feelings, and goals and aspirations. At the end of session, I may summarize and offer suggestions.
Q: What should I consider when choosing a therapist?
A. In addition to considering a therapist's clinical education, training, and expertise, it is important for you to evaluate your comfort in working with a therapist. The initial therapy appointments should be used to determine whether you feel comfortable moving forward.
Q: How many sessions will it take to address my concerns?
A. Frequency and length of treatment depend on your specific goals and circumstances. I provide both time-limited and longer-term therapy.
Q: Can I continue to work with you through telehealth if I move out of state?
A. No. I am licensed to see clients in Hawaii. Therefore, I am unable to see clients if they relocate to another state.
Q: Do you prescribe medication?
A. No. However, when appropriate, clients may be referred for a medication evaluation with a psychiatrist.
