Aloha, my name is Kianna Akazawa. I am a cis-gender female, and my pronouns are she/her. I am new to Las Vegas, recently moving from Honolulu, Hawaii where I was born and raised. Growing up in Hawaii has shaped me into an energetic and compassionate social worker. I began my career in behavioral health case management, assisting patients connect with behavioral health specialists. I later joined an outpatient hospital program as a medical social worker, working with mostly elderly patients and their caregivers. I value making connections with people by treating all of my clients as if they were my own ‘Ohana (family). I am a very easy-going person. I enjoy outdoor adventures, exercising, and trying new things. I believe everyone is on their own life adventure and I would be honored to help guide you along the way.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker Intern. I received my Masters in Social Work from the University of Hawaii at Manoa with a focus in Geriatrics. I have volunteered with Child Welfare Services, Adult Protective Services, & St. Francis Hospice Palliative Care Program.
