get in touch with your true self....
Thank you for taking the time to get to know more information about me.  Before I speak about myself, I would like to acknowledge my Heavenly Father and loving savior Jesus Christ for everything that I am.  I am eternally grateful for the opportunities both my personal life and work experience have taught me.  Through His Grace and Mercy, I have been abundantly blessed and enriched to serve in the best capacity that allows His goodness to endure and persevere.  It is the Lord's light that strengthens me to support others during their most difficult and darkest times.  For this opportunity I praise and glorify the Lord Jesus Christ's mighty name.  I owe all glory and honor to Him.  If you are still reading, then you likely have found the right place for you.  #GratefulHeart


Hi there and mahalo (thank you) for coming by to learn more about me.  I have an extensive background of service with diverse groups of people.  I have treated youth, families and adults who were afflicted with different types of mental health conditions.  My comprehensive experience has allowed me an in-depth perspective of how effective treatment positively impacts people's daily lives.  Being a part of others positive achievements through their improved mental health sparked the inspiration to pursue my current work as a psychotherapist.  
I have a Bachelor's degree from San Jose State University and a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology from Palo Alto University.  After earning this Masters degree, I hit the ground running on the very lengthy career track with a rigorous and extensive training process.  I collected over 3500 hours of therapeutic experience and then successfully passed a legal and (super tough!) clinical exam which advanced my position to become a licensed marriage and family therapist.  I am a psychotherapist who is blessed to do what I love and love what I do!

All Glory and Honor to God

I am a devoted woman of faith who believes whole-heartedly in the transformative power of Jesus Christ.  "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." (2 Corinthians 5:17)- King James Version

When permitted, I combine the evidenced based teachings of psychotherapy with bible-based scriptures in order to strengthen your ability to overcome and resolve current or recurring mental health conditions.  "These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." (John 16:33)- King James Version

"For I know the plans I have for you.."- Jeremiah 29:11

I am the daughter, grand-daughter, and great-grand-daughter from a lineage of Christian pastors who have served our Heavenly Father and the Christian faith.  I grew up strong in the faith and am the daughter of a Head Pastor who founded and continues to serve a local community church for over 33 years.  I have had both the honor and privilege to witness powerful transformations when faith and wise counsel have shed light on difficult, often dark, situations.  I have been given a front row pass to witness the impossible become possible.  It is hard work for all parties involved, but also pretty amazing, Mana-mazing if you ask me! 

"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." (Romans 8:28).  
There is immeasurable relief to those who have faith and recover from their ongoing mental health issues.  It is common for many to suffer from misery when feeling anxious, depressed, fearful or hopeless.  I am here to remind you of the living truth of God's scripture which counsels your mind and soul.  "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. (2 Timothy 1:7). 

I offer a style of psychotherapy which combines the peaceful relaxation of my Polynesian heritage and the empowerment of Christian truth found in faith.  Journey with me to our Island of Hope where we can create a safe and healthy therapeutic space to vacate your stress and refresh your life, let's find your true treasure and 
"peace of paradise".
