Accepting new patients:
Hi! I'm Alicia. I am a Hawaii Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Certified Substance Abuse Counselor. I am born and raised in Hawaii and come from a multi-cultural background. I have clinical experience working in both inpatient and outpatient settings, with adolescents and adults, and provide individual, couple and family therapy. I specialize in working with individuals who may experience anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, interpersonal conflicts, adjustment issues, and life transitions.
I work towards prioritizing your“self” to build a more meaningful life through improved all-around wellness. Having a respectful, trusting, and non-judgmental relationship with you is most important. Once established, we will work together to address areas of improvement, gain understanding of self, and work towards improved self-growth and development.
I focus on your individual and/or family needs through a person-centered approach, and utilize skills such as Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), person centered approach, psychodynamics’ amongst others, that are tailored specifically to your unique, individual needs.
Seeking and engaging in therapy can feel like an overwhelming and intimidating experience, but together, we will address challenges in a positive and safe environment.
