  • Something to know about my approach is:

    You'll have a seasoned therapist who's truly on your side. We'll examine your feelings, emotions, and behaviors as important clues about what is going on internally, and use these as tools for change. I'll help you identify your own goals.

  • Together, we will:

    My clients often discuss the effects of childhood family dynamics on current patterns of behaviors. They learn to examine what their goals are at a deep level and work with me to move towards those goals.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    I specialize in working with people who feel they're stuck in emotional turmoil. They often feel depressed, unconfident, critical about themselves or loved ones, anxious, or deeply affected by the past.

  • I became a therapist because:

    Mental health is the foundation of our health. It should be taken care of as much as, or even more than, our physical health.

  • Something that stands out about where I offer therapy is:

    I offer teletherapy via an easy, secure, and HIPPA-compliant video platform. You'll be able to receive therapy from the convenience of your home.

  • More about me and my practice:

    I'm a bi-cultural, bilingual (Japanese) psychotherapist with over a decade of experience working with adults, older adolescents, and families from diverse backgrounds. I tailor my therapeutic intervention to best meet your goals and needs.
