Seeking help for struggles can be difficult. Just know that you have made the most important step in creating your life the way you want it. Life can present many challenges; with the right support these can be incredible opportunities to grow. Starting therapy is the beginning of a journey to find a more connected and fulfilling relationship to ourselves, others and the world we live in.

Each of us, deep down, hold our own answers to the issues we face. Sometimes we need an objective listener to ask new questions, suggest new skills, be supportive and coach us through tough times.

As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I am trained in a variety of modalities to meet your unique needs. I have been working therapeutically with adults, adolescents and families for over 17 years. I specialize in addressing personal growth, trauma, substance use and issues in relationships. I incorporate many tools including, Solution-Focused Therapy, mindfulness, and helping to bring awareness to the connection of your thoughts, feelings and actions. I have training in EMDR Therapy, a therapeutic tool for handling traumatic experiences and PTSD.

In my practice I offer a compassionate, nonjudgmental, and an encouraging approach to the therapy process. This approach helps to emphasize the power of a persons own strengths, supporting them on their healing journey. We will be working together to bring freedom, empowerment and well being to your life.

Please contact me to schedule a consultation so that we may discuss your first step toward your goals.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

A number of benefits are available from participating in therapy. Therapists can provide support, problem-solving skills, and enhanced coping strategies for issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship troubles, unresolved childhood issues, grief, stress management, body image issues and creative blocks. Many people also find that counselors can be a tremendous asset to managing personal growth, interpersonal relationships, family concerns, marriage issues, and the hassles of daily life. Therapists can provide a fresh perspective on a difficult problem or point you in the direction of a solution. The benefits you obtain from therapy depend on how well you use the process and put into practice what you learn. Some of the benefits available from therapy include:

  • Attaining a better understanding of yourself, your goals and values
  • Developing skills for improving your relationships
  • Finding resolution to the issues or concerns that led you to seek therapy
  • Learning new ways to cope with stress and anxiety
  • Managing anger, grief, depression, and other emotional pressures
  • Improving communications and listening skills
  • Changing old behavior patterns and developing new ones
  • Discovering new ways to solve problems in your family or marriage
  • Improving your self-esteem and boosting self-confidence

I offer a complimentary 20-minute consultation by phone. During this first discussion we can talk about the issues you’re seeking help with and get a sense for how we might work together.

To make an appointment, please contact me at 808-264-1234. When leaving or sending a message, please let me know your full name and phone number, and which days and times you might be available to meet.

Yes, everything we discuss will remain confidential. The law requires me to disclose information if I learn of the abuse of a child or a serious risk of suicide or harm to others. If you use insurance to pay for your therapy, certain information may be required by the insurance company as a condition of coverage. This might include information about symptoms and diagnosis, and the extent of their impact on your well-being.

Since each person has different issues and goals for therapy, therapy will be different depending on the individual. In general, you can expect to discuss the current events happening in your life, your personal history relevant to your issue, and report progress (or any new insights gained) from the previous therapy session. Depending on your specific needs, therapy can be short-term, for a specific issue, or longer-term, to deal with more difficult patterns or your desire for more personal development. Either way, it is most common to schedule regular sessions with your therapist (usually weekly).
