Let’s cast aside labels, the idea that something is “wrong with you”, and instead honor the multidimensionality of our humanness and desires for change. Imagine an enriching life that is the embodiment of peace, joy, abundance, authenticity, connection, and living your truth. This is possible for you and it would be an absolute honor and a privilege to walk alongside you in your journey.

I am a bilingual English/Japanese psychotherapist with professional experience in academic and clinical settings in the US and Japan. I enjoy working with clients representing a wide range of age groups and socioeconomic status and diverse cultures, ethnicities, and sexual orientations. I specialize in helping clients with issues related to life transitions such as relocation, cultural adjustment, career/job challenges, relationships, family dynamics, loss, education, health, or retirement. These challenges are a part of your journey and may cause you to lose your sense of balance. Still, I believe we all have the capacity to solve our issues and the potential to grow.

You're sick of your past getting in the way. You've been through a lot and done your best to cope. You thought if you could just leave it behind you then you'd feel "normal." But unfortunately that hasn't been the case. You feel like if anyone really knew you, they'd realize you are damaged goods. So you do your best to keep that stuff packed away. But you're tired and lonely. You feel invisible at times. Like no one sees or understands you. You want to let someone in but the thought is terrifying. You're sick of feeling ruled by your past and all the shame around it. You want to finally leave it behind. I can help.

I deeply value peoples' ability to be honest and kind to themselves so they can recognize when change is needed, but also forgive themselves for having struggled... because struggling is human. We all struggle, we all make mistakes, and we all have been in a place where we may not have presented as our best selves. Things in life can be difficult and we may lose sight of our importance and value in this life. I want you to know that I am here to remind you that you matter and that you are so much stronger than you realize or may give yourself credit for.

Life can be stressful for adults, and children too. I specialize in working with youth, families, and adults to process their past traumatic events and childhood abuse. I utilize a cognitive behavioral, integrative approach, with a trauma informed lens and an emphasis on evidence-based therapies. I know that it can be difficult to talk about these events. That is why in therapy we will work at your pace to identify the impact that your trauma has had on your daily functioning. You will learn skills that help you express and regulate your feelings, challenge negative thinking patterns, and build healthy relationships.

Without the help from someone who has lived through narcissistic abuse themselves, your journey toward recovery might feel like a lonely, difficult pursuit. Our goal is to help you heal, recover, and reclaim your life and learn to avoid toxic relationships forever.

I believe that each person has a unique purpose. Life presents with situations where depression, addiction, anxiety, eating too much, eating too little, low self-esteem, and no self-identity can distract a person from finding this unique purpose. I like to explore a variety of issues that keep you from experiencing your purpose in life and help you find your meaning and make sense of that meaning.

What type of San Diego mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in San Diego?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
