“I lead people to the key that is already within themselves, and help them unlock what they already encompass.”
Tom began working with families and adolescents in 2005, and family counseling is both his specialty and his passion. He helps families, especially those with children aged 14 to 25, deal with and overcome a broad array of difficulties. When helping his clients, Tom uses a holistic approach by considering many factors contributing to problems. He looks at the biological, psychological, and social conditions that affect a person. As a therapist, Tom guides his clients through a healing process that enables them to have more wellness in their lives.
Tom has worked with adolescents for many years as a wilderness guide and therapist. Tom spent 12 years with the National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs. He also has experience at Pacific Quest, a wilderness therapy program for teens and young adults on the Big Island of Hawaii. If you are interested in wilderness therapy for your child, Tom can walk you through what this process will look like.
In addition to running his own practice located in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, Tom is also a member of the treatment team at Hawaii Island Recovery. If substance abuse treatment is a significant piece of the client treatment plan, Tom can explain what this process will look like as well.

He does this in a way that fosters trust, respect, and healing for everyone involved. Tom is a rare find in a therapist.
