 Aloha,     

As a Marriage Family Therapist, I provide psychotherapy services from a family systems perspective that is my blending of Bowen concepts (generations are important), Solution Focused (let’s look for ways to solve problems) and Symbolic Experiential therapy (engage in the counseling process through art and active expression of thoughts and feelings that maybe conscious and unconscious).

I specialize in Child-Centered Play Therapy to help children and adolescents express themselves in addition to using verbal therapies. A wide variety of materials are available for creative self-expression (paint, art supplies, clay, sand) and puppets for dramatic play.  For more active children, a bop bag can be used as well.

hands in sandAdult therapy can be provided to clients as well as brief couples counseling. I utilize principles from John Gottman to help couples understand themselves and rebuild the foundation of their relationship through trust, love and commitment     

For mental health professionals I can provide supervision towards certification as Registered Play Therapists (Association for Play Therapy) or to become licensed as Mental Health Counselors or Marriage Family therapists in the State of Hawaii. 

Mahalo for visiting my site!
