Spreading Aloha to Vicitms of Hurricane Harvey 

Last week Pacific Quest’s Executive Director Mark Agosto and Kellyn Smythe traveled to Houston to share the aloha spirit with victims of Hurricane Harvey.  With support from the team at Academic Answers, needs like diapers, mattresses, food, refrigerators, clothing, bedding, and a full set of new kitchen appliances were identified and fulfilled.  However, in a whirlwind of shopping, moving, organizing, and delivering, it became clear that the Aloha Spirit was already there.

Hawai`i Hosts International Sandplay Therapy Congress

PQ's Clinical Director, Dr. Lorraine Freedle recently presented original research on the neuropsychology of Sandplay Therapy and the role of Sandplay in the treatment of students with co-occurring trauma and substance use disorders.


Sandplay therapists and researchers from 24 countries gathered in Kailua-Kona this summer to explore the latest trends in Jungian Sandplay Therapy and to participate in the 24th Congress of the International Society for Sandplay Therapy (ISST).

With support from my Pacific Quest ohana and the Hawai`i sandplay community, I served as the primary conference organizer and host. After two years of planning and anticipation, we were excited to realize that the conference surpassed all expectations!
