Vishaka Devi Jokiel, LCSW

My Therapeutic Goal is to facilitate your healing by helping you to activate self-empowerment strategies. Using compassionate emotional processing and body-based therapeutic healing techniques, I will help you quickly and efficiently replace self-defeating patterns with healthier behaviors instead of focusing on “why” unhealthy patterns got established in the first place. My work is holistic, wellness-oriented and consciousness rising. My aim is to help guide you to a deep place of inner knowing, and to help you find the answers that you seek.

I am a graduate of the University of Hawaii at Manoa School of Social Work.
