personalityI am in private practice as a psychologist in Kailua and Honolulu,
working primarily with individuals (teens to seniors) in individual  counseling.

In general, my focus is on helping clients to overcome negative patterns of thinking,
feeling and behaving, to gain insight, and to strengthen honesty and intimacy in important relationships.

Typical treatment targets include:

  • Anxiety
  • Assertiveness
  • Depression
  • Codependency
  • Grief/Loss
  • Relationship Issues 
  • Stress Management
  • Life Transitions
  • Communication
  • Coping Skills/Self-Esteem

I also provide therapeutic management of acute/chronic mental illness and associated behaviors in coordination with other providers and treatment programs. I do not provide assessments or treatment for anger management, or evaluations or testimony in divorce/custody cases, worker’s compensation, EEOC or fitness for duty evaluations. I do not provide legal advice, services or opinions. I am not a faith-based counselor. I am “cishet” if that matters to you. (So far it hasn’t kept me from understanding anybody else’s orientation and/or preferences.)
