As a clinical psychologist board certified in Cognitive Behavioral Psychology, Dr. Ralston provides Evidence-Based Treatments for adult women who, as children or as adults, have experienced domestic violence, physical or sexual assault (abuse, rape, molestation), sexual harassment, bad or manipulative relationships, miscarriage, other personal or interpersonal traumas, motor vehicle accidents, or other serious, distressing, or threatening events. Experiencing these kinds of events sometimes leads to a variety of symptoms such as increased fear, avoidance, irritability, guilt, shame, low self-esteem, deficits in assertiveness, and changes in how one views self, others, the world, and more. Dr. Ralston regularly treats all of these symptoms. A particular area of focus in his practice is treating trauma-related guilt, which is often signaled by beliefs and statements such as "I should have (thought, felt, or acted differently)..." or "I could have (thought, felt, or acted differently)... and then (the negative outcome / traumatic event) wouldn't have happened."
In addition, Dr. Ralston assists in "inoculating" adult women against future abusive or manipulative potential partners through teaching his clients how to identify red flags in potential partners well before becoming emotionally invested. He treats related women's issues and works to empower his clients to lead safe, healthy, happy and empowered lives.
Dr. Ralston also treats adult women struggling with all forms of anxieties...such as panic, phobias, social anxiety, generalized anxiety, and OCD. Treatment is provided in a compassionate, respectful, and confidential setting at his therapy office in Kaimukī, Honolulu. In some cases, Dr. Ralston is also able to provide online therapy (also known as telemedicine, telehealth, and telepsychology).
Decades of studies have shown Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Exposure & Response Prevention (ERP), and Prolonged Exposure (PE) to be the treatments of choice for overcoming anxieties and trauma.
