E Komo Mai! Welcome to HOPE Network
Aloha is more than just a greeting, although it is often used to say hello and goodbye. It can also express love and regards, as well as meaning the ‘aloha spirit’ by which Hawaiian islanders live. The aloha spirit is defined as an acronym where ‘Aloha’ means mutual regard and affection and extends warmth in caring with no obligation in return.
Akahai, meaning kindness, to be expressed with tenderness;
Lōkahi, meaning unity, to be expressed with harmony;
ʻOluʻolu, meaning agreeable, to be expressed with pleasantness;
Haʻahaʻa, meaning humility, to be expressed with modesty;
Ahonui, meaning patience, to be expressed with perseverance.”
Therefore, it is within the context of the aloha spirit that I greet you and welcome you. I hope to be of service to residents of Hawaii by providing professional psychotherapy to journey with you during this time in your life.
I moved back to Hawaii in 2017 after being away for most of my life. My Hawaiian father split with my Caucasian mother when I was a small boy, and she moved me and my four siblings to Tennessee. I did most of my growing up in Louisiana. So I am part Hawaiian, part Country, and part Cajun. For as long as I can remember, I felt the draw of the islands calling me back, and I finally made it. I have much to learn about my Hawaiian heritage. So, when you meet me, don’t be surprised when I speak and you hear a strong southern accent!
