Leilani Maxera, MPH, LCSW - Kaipuokaualoku Therapy + Death Work + Consulting
* I take HMSA PPO & HMSA QUEST but these were not options under the insurance category. At this time I do have a waitlist.*
I am a Kanaka ʻŌiwi therapist who is queer, poly, kink, asexual/aromantic, and sex-worker friendly. I value harm reductionist, abolitionist, anti-capitalist, and anti-colonial therapy practices. I also love working to support other people in the healing and helping professions. I avidly support reproductive rights and the rights of transgender people, and can offer support to any individuals struggling with what is currently happening to erode these rights.
I meet people where they are at. You are the expert on your own experiences; I am a guide to help you on your journey. Together we will create a nonjudgmental space where you can share your story, develop a deeper understanding of yourself, and accomplish your goals.
I keep in mind that we can work as hard as we can to heal, but there are limits under racial capitalism, transphobia, ableism, and other forms of violence and oppression we face that cause trauma we cannot control. While what we really need is community care, self-care in the form of getting therapy is just one of many tools which exist to help us heal.
I also do grief counseling, death work, and consulting and staff support for social service agencies, all on a sliding scale basis.
