About Us

We provide comprehensive integrative care with the option of medication or mental health services online. Our integrated model allows for superior patients care, allowing your providers to speak with one another (with your permission), giving you the best and most complete care possible.

Enhanced Security and Privacy

With our online services, we can connect to your phone or in-home computer, providing you with our services where ever and whenever you can get to a private space. We use HIPAA certified encryption for every piece of information that you type or say on our EMR platforms to ensure your security and confidentiality.

Convenience

We are open from 8am to 8pm, 7 days a week, and you do not worry about remembering your appointments. Our automated appointment reminder will call or text you to help you keep track of your appointments. Plus, being able to see your provider via online Telehealth allows you to get the care you need with as little interruption in your day as possible.

Quality Team Work and Care

We believe that by working with other professionals, our services are stronger, and provide our clients with a wider array of knowledge and skill than a single professional or profession can provide. If you want a second opinion on your case, one of our other providers can help you. We also do not use a machine to match you with a therapist. We use a real human who knows our therapists and what they specialize in, to match you to the professional that can best help you. Serenity requires each therapist to complete a case study exam by a licensed clinician, background check, and to have an in-person or video interview. In addition, all therapists have over 3,000 hours of clinical experience and the highest level of licensure so that you get the highest standard and quality of care.

Payments Accepted

We offer several easy ways to make payments via popular credit cards like Visa, MasterCard, and American Express.

Testimonials

Serenity Counseling is located in Aiea and seeks to help others from homemakers, to doctor's, to busy executives, or military familie, here are just a few of the testimonies we have received.

We tried Serenity Counseling Services as a last attempt before divorce. Our therapist helped us learn what wasn't helping our marriage, how to communicate better, re-establish the trust that was broken and even how to be better parents. It was very skill based, and it did not take long to see positive changes in our marriage. 
~Serenity Client

My therapist came to the hospital with me to visit my dad after his accident. My anxiety was too high to go alone and having my therapist with me gave me the support I needed. I will never forget it.
~Serenity Client

My child had difficulties paying attention and often acted out at school, but I did not want to put him on medication. After going to Serenity and enrolling in the Scream Free program, I learned that we both were stuck in negative patterns of behavior. Now he is on the Dean's list! For my part, I know a more about how to help him, and my stress is so much less.
~Serenity Client

Therapy never helped me with my anxiety or depression. My psychiatrist insisted I try Serenity. Everything my therapist told me was fact-based. He even showed me the research articles he often referenced. It's hard to argue with facts and when you know that you can be better, you want to do better. So, therapy did help me, and for the first time in 15 years, I am having my Psychiatrist reduce my medications.
~Serenity Client

Military life is harder than most people realize. As a spouse, with kids and a part-time job, my marriage felt distant, and I was stressed. At Serenity, I learned more than I thought I would, about myself and how to be a better me, a better spouse and parent. I think talking to someone who really cared and understood how challenging military life can be helped.
~Serenity Client

Frequently Asked Questions

Printable Version

How do I know if I need therapy?

No one is immune to life’s challenges. In general, therapy can benefit you if you feel that something is “off” or if you are not sleeping well, lack focus at work, have little appetite, stress eat, or have strained or distant relationships with friends and loved ones. Also, if you feel “blue” or “emotionally numb” or struggle with reoccuring feelings of depression, anxiety, anger etc., and things just aren’t getting better, or you recognize that you tend to think a lot of negative thoughts, these are all pretty strong indicators that seeking out a trained professional can help. 

Why shouldn’t I try to just work through this on my own?

Life is a lot easier when we have others help us. It’s easy to put off seeking out help for something that’s negatively impacting our lives. The decision to get help can actually be extremely difficult for many people because asking for help is often seen as a weakness in some way. Nothing could be further from the truth! Asking for help is takes strength and tremendous courage. We can get more done and end up with better outcomes when we ask for help from others. Somehow, as adults, we tend to forget that everything we do in life, we learned. From eating with a spoon to tying our shoelaces, to how well we perform at our jobs, someone helped us learn how to do these things. One person does not build a world wonder like the Golden Gate Bridge, many people helping one another do. Yet somehow, we tend to think we are supposed to know how to manage all of life’s challenges on our own. Adding to this, people tend to dismiss feelings of anxiety, emotional pain, relationship stress, or depression as temporary or “just how life is.” Deciding to take responsibility for your mental well being and is an empowering first step on the road to becoming a happier and healthier you.

What does professional therapy provide?

Professional counseling gives you an opportunity to share, but also to gain a new understanding and perspective on your life challenges. Through therapy, you can get to the root of the issues, learn techniques for changing your life, and regain control by practicing healthy patterns for long-lasting improvement. Professional therapy can also help you define your goals for your future and how to go about reaching those goals. Professional therpay also means that we will work with you online or in person at your pace and recommend to science and researched interventions not personal opinions. 

What happens in a therapy session?

Every client is unique, and so therapy sessions will vary in format and approach. Sometimes clients have specific things they’d like to talk about. Other times, they talk about an emotion that’s bothering them. In addition to in-session discussion and activities, we might encourage you to do an out of session activity or assignment that we can discuss later (like reading a book, or keeping a journal, or watching a video). The overarching process is to identify the areas where change or help is needed, set realistic small goals, and to equip you with resources and strategies to be successful.

Do I have to share things I don’t want to?

Certain topics or stories can be difficult to share, and that’s normal. You don’t have to share anything you don’t want to, or that makes you uncomfortable. It’s important to build a trusting relationship between therapist and client, but our sessions always progress at a pace that you feel ready for.

How long does therapy take?

Individual in person or online sessions are generally about 30-50 minutes in length. The session length varies based on the individual person and their goals. Incredible progress can be made in just a few minutes. It’s not uncommon for therapy to span several sessions over a period of weeks or months.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Yes. Your privacy is important to us, and you can trust that our sessions online or in person, as well as any of your personal information, is always held in the strictest confidence. Additionally, anything you transmit over our platform is highly secure, and all stored data is HIPAA-compliant. Confidential information disclosed in private therapy sessions is legally protected. This will be explained to you in detail prior to enrolling with us. However, there are some exceptions to confidentiality that you may want to know about now. Instances of suspected child or elder abuse, or when a client presents a serious danger of violence toward himself or herself or others are mandated by law to be reported to the proper authorities. If you’d like to learn more about our ethical standards and privileged communication exceptions, our office can provide additional information.

How does payment work if I want more than one professional to come to my home or if I want to see another professional at their office location?

At Serenity, we do everything possible to make asking for help easy and affordable. This may mean billing insurance to cover the cost of therapy if desired. If you have two therapists present at the same time, for couples therapy, typically, insurance will only cover one, and you can pay in advance or in person for the others services. We will of course let you know the cost in advance. If you choose to see only one provider from Serenity and opt to go to another provider's location for treatment on other issues your insurance may cover it as well.
