Lauren Emoto-Barnhill, PsyD, Psychologist in Honolulu
Children and adolescents face the difficult challenge of expressing and modulating emotions in an adult-focused world. I strive to provide a safe and supportive environment to allow clients to cope instead of suppressing feelings or self-medicating. My approach combines client strengths, relationship themes and self-regulation to help clients understand the emotions that motivate behavior. Together, we can identify problem thoughts and behaviors, how they worked to help cope in the past, why they are not working now, and how we can make positive changes for the future.
I work with children, adolescents, adults and families with a wide range of mental health concerns. My specialties include childhood, mood, and anxiety disorders, as well as supportive parenting. I have clinical experience in many levels of care (acute inpatient, residential treatment, partial hospitalization, day treatment, school-based, and outpatient).
Located in Kahala Mall, my practice offers ample free parking in a convenient area. My hours are M, T, W from 7:00am - 9:00pm. *Please note that I do not take breaks between sessions and cannot return emails and telephone calls regarding new client inquiries during work hours.
