About

I am a licensed psychologist, writer, and performance consultant living in Honolulu, Hawaii.

I also work with executives, organizations, and small groups doing performance consulting.

I am also a featured writer for the FRC’s monthly newsletter, which explores the outer reaches of human excellence. For more information or to receive the newsletter, click here

My style is eclectic and blends psychoanalytic theory, positive psychology, existential psychology, neurobiology, and functional medicine to bring a truly integrated approach to your quest for a sense of wellness. I emphasize collaboration, partnership, and personal empowerment.

Background

I received my MA from Boston College where I studied Counseling Psychology. I then began my doctoral training at George Washington University with an emphasis on Adult Psychotherapy from a psychoanalytic perspective. Upon completion of my doctoral studies, I completed my internship and post-doctoral fellowship training at two inpatient psychiatric hospitals in the Boston area. There, I worked with people who were suffering from the most severe and retractable forms of mental illness. Those experiences taught me the deep and enduring value of comprehensive and collaborative care from a multi-disciplinary perspective. I carry those lessons with me to my current work in my private practice, where I emphasize and utilize my partnerships with physicians, naturopaths, and functional medicine doctors and nutritionists to provide the best standard of care.

In addition to my psychology training, I’ve studied extensively the use of mindfulness, functional medicine, hormones, and how food, medicine, and mood are interconnected.

My influences include Dr.’s Hyman, Benson, Kabat-Zinn, Maté, Gervais, and Gordon, as well as Tara Brach, Brené Brown, Irvin Yalom, Howard Stern, Steven Kotler, and Bruce Springsteen, to name only a few.
