Aloha and Welcome, 

I am the clinical director and founder of Leap of Faith Counseling, LLC where we provide quality therapeutic services to the people of Hawaii. 

My passion is serving trauma survivors, high-risk teens, people with relationship issues, and christians looking to align their faith with therapy. I utilize an experiential approach that pushes clients to discover their strengths, dig deep and experience change right away. I also practice EMDR to help clients alleviate the detrimental effects of trauma.  

 

I found my calling as a therapist after ending an intense relationship. That experience created a deep sense of empathy towards those who have ever been hurt and in a vulnerable place.

I received my Master of Science in Counseling Psychology from Chaminade University in 2012. Since 2016, I have been serving as a Behavioral Health Specialist at Kamehameha Schools, where I  work with students and their families to deal with issues such as depression, anxiety, suicide ideation, abuse, grief, interpersonal and family crises. In 2017, I launched my practice.

In addition to my work at Kamehameha Schools and private practice. I am an adjunct faculty at Chaminade University Master of Science in Counseling Psychology program.

 

I was raised in Wailua, Kauaʻi and now reside in central ʻOahu with my wife Rebecca, son Azariah, and daughter Liana.

 

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, surfing, spearfishing, and jiu-jitsu.

 

I thank the Lord Jesus for giving me the opportunity to fulfill my calling. All glory goes to Him alone.
