As a local girl of multiethnic backgrounds, Dr. Zane strongly identifies with her Hawaiian and Japanese ancestries. She enjoys working with clients of diverse backgrounds and varied life experiences. She started her professional life as an attorney, but discovered that she was drawn to helping people to overcome challenges. Now an ICEEFT Certified EFT Trainer and Supervisor, Dr. Zane is passionate about teaching clinicians from around the world how to help more couples, families and individuals build secure relationships in their lives. After all, life is most meaningful when we have significant others to share it with. 

EFT offers a structured approach to couple, family and individual therapy that have emerged in tandem with the science on attachment and bonding. Developed by Dr. Sue Johnson in the 1980s, the model has expanded and been validated by multiple scientific studies. Research studies have demonstrated that 70-75% of couples move from distress to recovery and approximately 90% show significant improvements.

In addition to working with couples, families and individuals, Dr. Zane also offers consultation and supervision services to EFT clinicians who want to further their EFT development . She maintains a private practice in Honolulu, Hawaii.
