About Me

Hello, my name is Ku'uipo, you may call me Ipo for short. I have work with teens off and on throughout the twenty years I have been a Therapist. I do enjoy working with young people as they are easy to talk too and open to make the changes to enhance the quality of their lives. I have a BA degree in Psychology from the University of Hawaii-Hilo Campus and a Masters degree in Social Work, from the University of Hawaii-Manoa Campus, where I specialized in "Child and Family". I work towards helping someone develop the skills to cope with the ups and down of every day life and learn the tools that will create a better and healthier outcome for the individual.

It takes courage to make the changes that will enable you to a more fulfilling and happier life. Taking the first steps to change is huge! If you are ready to take those steps, I am here to help support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Really appreciate how Ipo listens calmly to both of us, and remains neutral, giving advice we both can benefit from.

Ipo has been inviting, understanding and helpful. She has a bright personality that compliments her work and is very knowledgeable!

Ipo is amazing. There are not enough good words I could say about her. Kind. Knowledgeable. Understanding. I couldn't have asked for a better match.

IPO has been wonderful for my son. After a few months with weeks to 2x a month appointments she said Matthew didn’t need her anymore. Matthew on the other hand wanted to keep her as an option and wants to talk with her once a month. She’s great at her job and I highly recommend here

I feel very acknowledged and heard by Ipo! She really feels like a professional with experience and is real with me - she doesn’t feed me buzz words or BS, and I feel better after speaking to her. A small burden lifted.
