Who We Are

Welcome to Quality of Life, Inc. - A Honolulu based group specializing in Anger /Stress Management Classes. We are currently offering ongoing groups for individuals and couples seeking better conflict resolution and emotional management skills.
Quality of Life, Inc. is an organization that is led by Chris Leong, Ph.D. and Laura Rosas Leong, M.A.

Chris received his Ph.D. in Cross-cultural Psychology from The Union Institute.  He describes himself as a Holistic Health Counselor.  He believes in the interconnection of body, mind, and spirit.  A fourth component, emotions is an area that much of his work is now focused.  Emotions are an area that is often overlooked and misunderstood. Chris believes that for optimum health there needs to be a balance with one's body, mind, emotions, and spirit.

Chris' two most important mentors were Dr. Andre Auw and Dr. Mitsuo Aoki.  Dr. Auw was a colleague and close friend of Carl Rogers, known as one of the leaders in the Humanistic Psychology Movement in the 60's and 70's.  Dr. Aoki, fondly known as "Mits", was a popular and renowned professor at the University of Hawaii.  He is also credited with being influential in the Hospice Movement in Hawaii.

Chris' teaching/counseling style is best described as comfortable and down-to-earth.  He is not pretentious and easily relates to people.  Although he is known to be direct, past clients have said that they did not find him threatening. He has a way of simplifying complicated concepts and making them understandable.   Many have said that if Chris was not their teacher they would not have wanted to continue with an anger management class because of the social stigma.

Laura received her Master's in Clinical Psychology from the Univerity of Houston.   Like Chris she also believes in the importance of viewing things from a holistic perspective.   She has done extensive research in the field of Neuroscience.   Because of her research she has a good grasp and understanding of the latest theories on the workings of the brain/mind.

Laura is an excellent listener and works well with her intuition.  Her style would best be described as soft and welcoming.  She is non-confrontive and states things in a way that can easily be received.  Past clients have said that they felt her warmth and felt comfortable sharing their inner feelings without feeling judged.
