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 spent five awesome years on the Big Island fulfilling an important part of my life journey.
While there is much to help reduce the stress and pressure of daily life, you might find that there are times when you could benefit from the objective counsel of a professional therapist. As a Christian counselor, I have had the privilege of walking alongside individuals, couples, and families on their journey toward health and wholeness.
I hope you will find this website helpful as you explore my services and decide to contact me to start our journey together.
