I fell in love with San Luis Obispo as a student at Cal Poly, and decided to establish my practice here to give back to the community that has welcomed me. Growing up in Hawaii, I learned to embrace and respect our cultural differences. I recognize that, given the right context, everyone has internal strengths and resources that can be accessed in therapy.
Therapy is a collaborative process. My role is to guide you through your self discovery as you find the strength you already possess. This journey is not always linear. I employ an eclectic style of therapy to suit each client’s needs and personality. I take a non-judgmental, caring, and direct approach to facilitating therapy. My philosophy is that we can all be the best versions of ourselves and that happiness is within our grasp.
I have been in practice since 2015. I have experience working with children, teens and adults, with struggles ranging from anxiety and depression to relationship troubles to phase of life issues. I am currently accepting new clients who are motivated to gain insight and are seeking to create change.
