Introducing our presenter: Cindy Aiko Leimomi Goodness Zane, PsyD, JD
Born and raised in Pearl City, Hawaiʻi, Dr. Cindy Aiko Leimomi Goodness Zane is a local girl at heart, of multiethnic backgrounds and strongly identifies with her Hawaiian and Japanese ancestries. She started her professional life as a trial attorney and discovered along the way that she was drawn to peoples’ stories, joys, challenges and relationships. As a licensed Clinical Psychologist in private practice, Dr. Zane enjoys working with couples, families and individuals of diverse backgrounds, identities and varied life experiences. She utilizes Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) to help clients to navigate through life’s challenges by strengthening their relationships. After all, life is less scary and most meaningful when we have close others to share it with.
Now Certified by the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT) as an EFT Trainer, Supervisor and Therapist, Dr. Zane is passionate about training more EFT clinicians throughout Hawaiʻi and around the world. She finds especially meaningful the support and the development of local EFT clinicians, those of diverse backgrounds and identities, as well as those who work with diverse and/or marginalized populations.
