As a child, Angela's extended family, especially her grandparents were a huge part of her life. One set of grandparents lived on a street called Molokai for over 60 years. In their backyard they had huge beautiful Hibiscus flowers. Molokai means gathering of ocean waters. When Angela became a therapist, she wanted a way to honor her grandparents, thus Molokai Marriage & Family Therapy was born. Molokai's mission is the gathering of relationships.
We all communicate, in various ways and sometimes we need help with that communication and that is where Molokai comes in. Molokai is a judgement free place, where you can talk about the things going on in your life to find some peace.
