Kira was born on Oʻahu and raised in Honouliuli in ʻEwa. She graduated from the University of Oregon with a B.A., double majoring in Ethnic Studies and Sociology, then attended the UH Mānoa Myron B. Thompson School of Social Work, earning her MSW with a focus on Behavioral Mental Health.
She is a graduate of the Hawaiian Learning Program, where her kumu/teachers taught her to integrate and adapt culture-based practices in diverse settings to better serve our ʻohana and larger community. She has most recently worked at the Queen’s Medical Center as a social worker and clinical therapist in both their youth and adult outpatient programs. She works to incorporate aloha ‘āina, or love of land, into her daily life.
Kira is currently being paneled with HMSA, HMAA and UHA insurances. Please call 808-387-4355 to check availability or to schedule an appointment with her. Only telehealth appointments are available.
