Therapy With Amy Yaeger
Brene Brown said, “Trust is earned in the smallest of moments. It is earned not through heroic deeds, or even highly visible actions, but through paying attention, listening, and gestures of genuine care and connection.” Over the past 10 plus years, I have effectively helped my clients by infusing my evidence-based therapeutic approaches with warmth and humor. We all need help at some point in our lives. Now is a good time to work with me on your goals and patterns. I’m happy to offer a free 30-minute consultation to help us get acquainted.
“Owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we will ever do.” Brene Brown

Finding the right therapist

With video-calling, we have the ability to communicate and connect with people around the world. It’s an honor to be able to support you if you are my neighbor, if you are on another Hawaiian Island, or if you live over 2000 miles away across the Pacific in California. In teletherapy, I will be able to provide you with a few moments in your busy life where you feel heard, seen, and supported with compassion, patience, hope, and guidance.

The journey of a lifetime begins with a single step
“You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.” Jon Kabat-Zinn
The clients I work with in Hawaii define Aloha as not just “hello” and “goodbye” but respect for community-Ohana, love of the land-Aloha Āina, caring for each other, the animals and peace.
For me, Aloha Within is the development of an inner state of balance, self-acceptance, comfort, contentment, resiliency, connection, and belonging through a loving community.
My Respect for Hawaii
I have a profound respect for Hawaii’s culture and traditions and I’m grateful for the community I have found here. Cultural sensitivity is extremely important to me as I respect all cultures of the world.
Honor in the Practice
It would be an honor to hear your story and help you navigate through any challenges.

With over a decade of experience, I have served youth and adults with various mental health conditions, including mild to moderate challenges.
