I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Substance Abuse Counselor in Hawaii with over 15 years of experience.
Clinical Social Worker in Honolulu, HI
I have a special interest in relationship issues as I know how debilitating negative relationships can be. I also have seen couples put in the work and make positive changes to create a healthy, loving, respectful relationship.
For the past 7 years I have worked for the military providing trauma focused therapy to individuals and couples. I am trained in various evidence based modalities such as Cognitive Processing Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, and Accelerated Resolution Therapy. I have experience treating trauma from childhood, combat, relationship abuse and more.
I started off in the social work field when volunteering for a non profit organization focused on assisting victims of domestic violence. Since then I furthered my education and continued my work in this field. In my last position, I was considered an expert in this area which trained me to assess and treat intimate partner violence. I have received extensive based training providing therapy to not only victims but offenders of domestic violence.
