Our Honolulu therapists are solution-focused, offering individual therapy, couple therapy & marriage counseling.

At our Honolulu therapy office, licensed therapists help people find healthy ways to understand and resolve life issues. We offer therapy services in person or through online counseling for your convenience. Whether through individual therapy, marriage counseling or couples therapy, our professional therapist can help you figure out how to move forward and make healthier life choices.

Individuals often struggle with feelings of anxiety, depression or find themselves in a perpetual cycle of re-experiencing painful life situations. Wanting to understand our experience and learn healthy life strategies is a pursuit worthy of exploration in therapy. With a professional outside point of view, clients often discover the inner resources and develop strategies that can make the difference in their lives.

We have a very effective coaching style to couples counseling that is hands-on and interactive. Through this solution-focused format we can help couples reduce harmful behavior and begin to treat each other with respect and love. With the help of a therapist, couples can begin to stop harming each other, develop a better understanding of their issues and develop the skills and tools necessary to find happiness.

If you are looking for a down-to-earth Honolulu therapist who integrates interactive exchange, direct feedback, and goal-focused therapy, you’ve come to the right place.

Nothing feels worse than feeling alone in your relationship. I have been working with individuals and couples to help them reconnect and move out of old patterns of relating. Together we can rebuild the intimacy that may have been buried underneath hurt and resentment. We can work together to stop having that “same old argument.” It’s more than just learning how to communicate with each other. It’s also about building a strong foundation where trust and respect allows each person to be vulnerable. Creating a strong foundation that allows the physical warmth and connection to grow. I have been working with individuals and couples for ten years to support them re-engaging in their life and their relationships; redefining priorities; and empowering the individual and couple to make new choices. My style is to collaborate with my clients and give them the tools needed to have the relationship they desire, with themselves and their partner. She provides individual therapy, couples therapy, couples counseling and marriage counseling.

Hello. My name is Sevin Philips. I’m a licensed therapist and I’m the founder of our center in Honolulu. I want to give you some information to help you make a decision if we are the right Honolulu therapist for you. Not every therapist is the right fit. I’m going to tell you a little bit about our approach and how we do things. I’m going to tell you what to expect when you come to therapy. I think it’s helpful, especially for those of you who’ve never done this before to have some idea what to expect.

I know this can be a somewhat scary and anxiety-provoking experience, reaching out to somebody you don’t know. But reaching out to a licensed professional can be a very smart thing to do. We have a lot of experience. We’ve worked with a lot of people on a lot of life issues and relationship issues, so we bring that wisdom into our sessions. We have a lot of skills and tools that not everyone has, and we try with your help to create a roadmap in your life so that you can move forward in your life in new and healthy ways. It’s probably why we call ourselves solution-focused therapists, because even though we’re here, interactive, and we’re listening, we’re really focused on the solutions that are going to help you in your life to be happy and joyous.

When you come into your first session we’re probably going to ask you how you’re doing and what’s happening in your life, and we’re going to listen to your thoughts, your feelings, and your opinions about your life issue. We’re going to ask a lot of questions, and this interactive approach I think makes couples and individuals feel really comfortable. It’s natural. It’s a natural way to get to know somebody. And I also find that clients learn a lot about themselves because we’re asking questions, and sometimes you have epiphanies about your life experience that you didn’t have before and it could be very helpful.

Many people have friends and family to talk to, some of us do not. Either case, coming to a professional is a really great place. It’s one of those places in the world where it gets to be just about you, and that doesn’t always get to happen in our lives.

A first step could be just to check out the articles and the videos that are on our website. Through those videos you might find a situation that you can relate to that’s very helpful for you. You’re going to get an idea the kinds of advice that we give. The most important step that I can recommend, though, is to reach out and give us a call. We have friendly receptionists that can answer basic questions. And if you want to talk to the therapist in your location near your house or your home. You can ask to talk to the therapist and it’s a great way to get to know them. You can get to know their personality, you can tell them a little bit about yourself. And if you feel comfortable, you can make an appointment.

Now, sometimes people want help paying for therapy, we are out-of-pocket, and sometimes people use what’s called out-of-network insurance. If you have an insurance provider, you can call them and ask if they have an out-of-network plan. And if they do, we can provide you with an invoice that may get you some money back. Sometimes people use what’s called flex spending or health savings accounts or something similar to that, and they use those monies to pay for therapy.

So I hope this information is helpful and I really encourage you to reach out and take the next step. Thank you.

Contrary to popular belief, my hubby and I don’t have a perfect marriage, but who does, right? There were/are several issues we needed/need assistance with; one of which was/is a nagging problem for quite some time. We’ve had several sessions with him and every time our sessions ended I felt some breakthrough had occurred, no

So, I’ve had what I’ll call “classic” issues with therapy. Until about 18 months ago, I thought that I could just deal with whatever I needed to, without help. Yeah. Then, I had a couple of unsuccessful starts with a couple of other therapists; One who really sucked, and one whose style was more along
