My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels.

I have worked as a trauma care psychotherapist since 1996 in Japan.
I approach each problem (symptom, trouble) as a “sign”….  or “messages from the unconscious/subconscious.” You might be wondering, “What is the problem I am facing right now trying to tell me?” We work together and work through reading the signs and exploring the unknown self with curiosity … Or You become aware of yourself that you have not been aware of before… I am here to support you.

Trauma .
Can we simply erase these last few years? We can’t, just like we can’t do the same with feelings around relationships, work and any other problem/s no matter what year, month or day it is. I have 20+ years experience in counseling, having learned its benefits for managing stress and how it can impact all aspects of our lives, especially mentally and physically. If the culture of how you interact with the world has been met with, “There’s no way I am I gonna talk to a Therapist!”, here I am, appealing to that group of you. Together, we can do hard things.

Congratulations on deciding to seek support. What a great step toward meeting your health and relationship goals! Psychotherapy can help you feel more calm, joyful and connected to others, while gaining greater understanding of your inner self and healing psychic wounds.  You deserve to be heard, encouraged to express yourself, connect, grow and self actualize. Therapy can be difficult work; however, you will quickly see that relief and clarity are within your reach. With my guidance, you will make your own discoveries and decisions and maintain control over your process, keeping it exciting, safe and appropriate for you.

I have extensive training and experience with relationships, eating disorders, depression, PTSD , anxiety, and unbalanced lives as well as forward-thinking issues such as a life purpose, broadening your perspective, and various other issues that may disturb your sense of peace.
I'm often asked how'd you get to be a therapist? My answer is... I know the pain people have, because I have experienced severe traumas - and ultimately conquered them. Since you have come to this site, you have the strength and persistence it takes to move through obstacles in your path. Along the way, you will discover unhealed places and ways to confront them gently. Together, we can get to the issues as we establish a trusting, safe relationship and ultimately reach the highest goal, which is transformation.

First, you probably need to know this right now... that you were created to be loved! Next, in therapy, real growth and change is influenced significantly by what you feel and think about your therapist. You need to feel safe, understood, validated, cared for, and able to trust the competency and selflessness of your therapist. Please feel free to come for a free introductory meeting with me. With deep care, compassion, understanding, and respect, I help you transition from surviving to thriving in relationships and life. I specialize in broken relationships or those struggling with past trauma or abuse.

As an experienced anxiety and trauma therapist, I believe that you deserve to feel empowered, confident, and genuinely connected to those around you.
You want to appear successful & like you have it “all together” but deep down are struggling to feel confident in who you are or are coping with challenging experiences that have occurred in your life. You may be fed up with feeling out of control of yourself and your emotions, feeling like everything is your fault or feeling hopeless. You might not even remember a time when life wasn’t like this. But one thing is for sure: you’re ready for some relief. You’re ready to confidently speak up for yourself. You’re ready to own your worth. Most of all, you’re ready to let go of needing to do everything perfectly all of the time.
