Kawakami is a practicing licensed and national board certified professional counselor, a National Board Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, an author, a motivational speaker, and a media personality.

Dr. Kawakami has worked with a wide variety of issues including relationship issues, anxiety, addiction, self-esteem, anger, etc…—addressing symptoms from a traditional long-term counseling perspective.  However, he quickly became tired of chasing symptoms week after week, month after month, and waiting for clients to “be ready” to address the real issues (the origin of their issues).  He now specializes in life-changing hypnotherapy that is designed to quickly and painlessly resolve trauma that manifests as emotional and behavioral challenges, in as little as 1-3 sessions.
