Greetings...and welcome to my profile page. Here you will learn a bit about my background and what I do...


I am available online to provide you with quality, professional counseling. Whatever problems and troubles you are faced with, I can offer you positive, non-judgemental support and effective therapeutic intervention. Whether you are dealing with depression, anxiety, traumatic stress, anger, grief, procrastination, relationship problems or work related/career issues...whatever situation you perceive to be troubling or a problem, it can be discussed in  privacy and confidentiality  through live chat, email or, in some locations, telephone.


The answers, solutions, strategies and understandings  we arrive at may be something so basic, you simply overlooked it; or, it may be something we discover, or even create, in our therapeutic dialogue. Or, you may simply need to vent: to talk it out with a professional; to be clearly heard by someone who actively listens...and cares; to be supported, and encouraged, in your challenges. You may need some thoughtful, perceptive feedback or some practical and insightful advice. Perhaps you have some concerns about your marriage or questions about parenting, or maybe you want to learn some effective communication and negotiation skills, or improve your self esteem and self motivation. You may be in a period of transition and want to explore your options, or maybe you are having difficulty making a decision about something.  There are many valid reasons to reach out for professional assistance. As a well informed and experienced counseling psychologist, I have the background to help you resolve your conflicts and problems,  meet your needs, move towards your goals and engage in the process of your personal development. 


I am an attentive and thoughtful listener. I draw upon decades of specialized training and applied skills. I view this work as a "heart-centered" practice with the intent of providing not only practical remedies but also a small ray of light and a little touch of inspiration by which you can see your way to a more meaningful life and feel better about yourself. If you are seeking professional guidance from a qualified counselor, I invite you to contact me.

Experience & Qualifications


I have provided mental and behavioral health counseling to individuals, couples, families, and groups for over 25 years dealing with such issues as depression, anxiety, panic, phobias, anger, traumatic stress, attention-deficit/hyperactivity, obsessions and compulsions, relationship conflicts and communication breakdowns, to name a few. During this time, I have also taught public and private classes on various self-improvement topics including self-image psychology, goal setting, visualization, motivation, communication and negotiation, parenting, coaching, stress and anger management, meditation and relaxation. I have worked as an individual and family therapist for years in the community and throughout school districts, an employee assistance counselor, the director of a crisis intervention program, a clinical supervisor and an administrator in a human service agency.


I have had training in Client Centered Therapy, Rational Emotive Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Family Systems Therapy, Structural Family Therapy, Hypnosis and Neurolinquistic Programming, Strategic Communication, Multicultural Sensitivity, Critical Incident Stress Management, Meditation and various Behavior Modification methodologies, all of which are incorporated into my eclectic and flexible approach to Solution Focused Therapy. My friends, colleagues and several clients have often commented that I have a novel, oddly slanted and somewhat creative "out of the box" way of looking at things. This can work to great advantage for those who may benefit by viewing things from a new and different angle.


I am currently a member of The International Society for Mental Health Online, The National Board of Certified Counselors, The American Counseling Association and The Hawaii Counselors Association. I currently reside in the state of Hawaii where I am a practicing Certified Licensed Mental Health Counselor.

Now, it is my turn to be quiet and listen....If you have any questions, please contact me.
