Find Japanese-speaking Therapists & Counselors in Fort Smith, AR.

 

A language barrier can make it impossible to communicate effectively, thwarting your therapy experience from the start. Good communication between you and your therapist is key to success in therapy.

If Japanese is your native language and you feel most comfortable expressing yourself in that language, you should seek therapy from a bilingual therapist or a Japanese-speaking therapist. Whether you are located in downtown Fort Smith, the suburbs of Fort Smith, other nearby places such as Rogers, Bentonville, or anywhere else in Arkansas, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

Ways a Language Barrier Can Hinder Therapy

Here are several ways that a language barrier can decrease the effectiveness of therapy and counseling:

  • It can cause a misdiagnosis based on an insufficient understanding of your symptoms.
  • Your therapist may misunderstand statements or cultural factors important to your health.
  • Without good communication, you may not fully understand the therapist’s treatment plan.

Due to the above reasons, it’s in your best interest to see a therapist who speaks your native language. We also encourage you to read licensed therapist Meredith Walker’s article to learn about additional things to consider when choosing a therapist.
