Jay Alvaro, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Kailua Kona, HI


As a Christian marriage and family therapist, I believe in the foundation of relationships, and my faith significantly influences my work. This is integrated with family systems and cognitive-behavioral understandings of how people work. My therapeutic approach is integrative, depending on the type of problem being addressed. I strive for a balanced integration of psychological principles with biblical truths, working with individuals, couples, and families. Within a systemic approach, I utilize several therapies including cognitive-behavioral, structural/strategic, intergenerational, experiential, and narrative solutions brief therapy. I use a strengths-based approach, focusing on the positive possibilities for a successful outcome.
