I am a licensed Clinical and Behavioral Psychologist in private practice in Kaneohe, Hawaii. I help children (age 4 & up), teens, and adults, providing individual, family, couple/marriage, and play therapy as well as diagnostic evaluations. My specialty is treating emotional problems (stress, depression, anxiety, anger, etc), correcting behavior problems (including ADHD), improving parenting, and counseling couples. I also facilitate adjustment to changes such as marriage, divorce, and blending of families.
Utilizing an individualized, collaborative, problem-solving approach, I provide Cognitive-Behavior Therapy tailored to your needs. Together, we resolve issues from the past; change present thoughts, feelings, and behaviors; and, work toward your goals.

A graduate of the University of Hawaii, at Manoa, I have a dual Doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology and Behavioral Psychology. I also have a Master's Degree in Social Psychology from the University of Bombay, India. I have been in private practice as a Psychologist from February 1998 and have additional experience as a Therapist or Psychologist since 1987.
I have taught, conducted research, and published in the field of Clinical Psychology. My Master's thesis investigated the relationship between Self-Concept and Social Behavior; my Doctoral dissertation was a pioneering study of the relationship between Personality Subtypes and Depression. As an Adjunct Professor at Hawaii Pacific Unversity, I teach online undergraduate psychology courses.
