Introducing Our Team
Holistic, Non 12-Step Addiction Treatment Center in Hawaii
CERTIFIED SUBSTANCE ABUSE COUNSELOR
Our vivacious therapist Josephine is an invaluable asset in helping our clients become their most authentic and accepting selves. Everyday, she strives “to create a safe environment for people to explore and discover who they are, how they operate, and why they make the choices that they do – all in order to help them learn that they are a capable, lovable, and powerful human being.”
If you can’t tell from her quote, Josephine’s passion for helping people overcome their addictions and other issues in life is present in everything she does. Ever since getting her Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Argosy University, Josephine has continued growing her expertise, becoming a Substance Abuse Counselor, Certified Domestic Violence Counselor, and Certified Anger Management Counselor.
Josephine believes that her variety of life experiences – from being a mom to an artist to a business owner to a Girl Scout – paired with her clinical training, gives her a unique opportunity to help people through whatever issues they are struggling with in their own lives.
At home, Josephine can be found playing with her family (which includes humans, cats, a pig, roosters, and hens!)
Her intuitive, warm nature coupled with a propensity to dive into intensive work is what makes Gina such a dynamic therapist and caring individual all around. Her love for authenticity spreads beyond her work into exploring the island and seeing all the limitless beauty it offers, as well as spending time connecting with her children and sweet grandchildren.
