About Me

Life is complicated. Let's talk about it.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Hawaii. I hold a Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Texas at Austin. I utilize various treatment modalities to help engage and empower clients in processing their experiences. I specializes in working with individuals, couples, and families who have been impacted by experiences during childhood, family issues, and relationship issues. I believe in a client-centered counseling approach. In couples counseling, your relationship is my client. You are the expert on your life, I am here to help you. I understand the importance of the relationship between a therapist and client and provide a supportive and non-judgmental environment during our sessions. Couples and families bring many relationship dynamics into sessions. Sometimes couples become stuck in negative patterns of behavior which limit their ability to communicate with each other. I will work with you to develop solutions to the problems you determine as well as empowering you to make the changes to accomplish your goals.

I can't say enough of Teralyn and her approach to helping my fiance and I shore up our relationship before we get married. She constantly makes herself available. She does an amazing job making us both feel heard and has given multiple solid action points that have moved our relationship forward.

She is very open and listens very well. I appreciate the fact that she waits to see the whole 30,000 ft. view before making a recommendation. She seems very experienced, and has already done a lot to open lines of communication with my spouse. Also, she has moved me forward personally, allowing me to see different perspectives.

Since I’ve started working with my counselor I have noticed I have gained my inner strength back. I’m so thankful because she has helped me dig deeper into where my issues come from so I can set forth living a better life. She is amazing, understanding and speaks in a way which makes me think more about what’s really going on in my life and how I can take steps to changing things that aren’t right for me.
Thank you for all your help!
