I'm a licensed psychologist in Honolulu with a history of providing psychotherapy since 1986. I am delighted to meet you. My training (p.2) and experience has made my therapy approach faster and more effective than ever. I am using rapid resolution therapies as EMDR with children, juveniles, and adults. 

EMDR can rapidly resolves  trauma, anger, stress, grief, loss, shame, deaths, fears, psychosomatic symptoms and psychotic symptoms. It is 'Strongly Recommended for Trauma,' in the Guidelines of the American Psychiatric Association 2004, the Veterans Administration 2004, and the USA Dept of Defense 2010.

My training includes Thought Field Therapy, TFT, and Low Energy Neurofeedback System, LENS. These therapies continue to  accumulate convergent research with profound anecdotal testimonials

 Trauma resolution eliminates triggers, compulsive coping mechanisms/addictions. 


LENS is the most current innovation in a rapid therapy technique to drain underlying angst, pervasive traumas,

unconscious issues, and improve brain functioning.

LENS senses your brain's routine frequency and plants a low-magnetic feedback pattern next to it, disrupting it. This allows your brain to reorganize, optimizing brain functioning. 

Everyone responds differently to LENS and EMDR. It is important to allow 48 hours for the brain to reorganize, to wait out any symptoms to see how you feel. Some people experience a lightening or darkening of the environment. Some feel more alert, sleep less, others feel relaxed, sleep more. It may take several sessions before you notice LENS' effect.


Self-monitoring will help you notice whether you respond versus react to routine situations. Note and bring your observations to session.

We may initially try a few protocols to see what is most effective. This is like searching for dose in psychiatry.   Your role is to stick with the process, notice any differences, and report changes to guide your therapy. This helps you to get the most out of your LENS sessions. Please complete the questionnaires/forms prior to your LENS session at

We approach your goals collaboratively so you are supported in a solution focused format.  Therapy issues and direction are in your control.

Psycho-education in addition to eclectic  therapies are expedited with the use of LENS, EMDR, and TFT, rapid trauma resolutions. Expediting the resolution of dysfunctional patterns moves you forward, allowing more effective behaviors to evolve.

In a relatively pain-free process, past issues that block your goals can be resolved in a time-efficient, systematic manner. 

It is important to wait out any symptoms while processing as diffusing repression can surface forgotten memories, unresolved feelings, as well as bring insight and overview to traumas.
