I work from a Person-Centered approach and draw from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Attachment-Based and Strength-Based modalities.
In my practice, I strive to create relationships with my clients that foster their growth and help them achieve their full potential. I value empathy and unconditional positive regard toward my clients. Understanding is called for when someone is hurting, confused, anxious, alienated, or doubtful of their self-worth. The gentle, empathic approach provides insight and healing. I respect the courage and vulnerability to come to therapy and try my best to take good care of my client's trust in me.

I utilize interventions grounded in psychodynamic, attachment-based , holistic, somatic, and person-centered modalities.
I specialize in self-esteem and working with attachment-related trauma, which is sometimes referred to as complex trauma or inner child wounding. This can lead to anxiety, depression, unhealthy behaviors, and a cycle of unfulfilling pattens or relationships. I help you connect with your inner world (feelings, needs, values) and explore how past experiences have shaped who you are. Through the safety of a compassionate and nurturing therapeutic relationship, we'll get curious about what is holding you back, define what is important to you, explore any unhelpful patterns you may be stuck in, and start trying new ways of coping.

My style of practice is relational, attachment-based , trauma-informed, and interactive.
People can feel stuck in their lives for many reasons. You may have vague feelings of dissatisfaction, or have an idea of what isn’t working but struggle to find a way forward. Perhaps you're feeling overwhelmed by familiar feelings from earlier difficulties or trauma that are being stirred up by current situations. My aim is to help you uncover the meanings and underlying causes of patterns of thinking, feeling, and interacting that may be holding you back. These can emerge in addressing day-to-day challenges, or while untangling old narratives formed by deeply rooted experiences.

I work as an Integral Psychotherapist (Gestalt, Somatic Experiencing, Attachment-based ).
My belief is everything is interconnected. When we hurt in one area of our lives, often times the other areas hurt with it. As simple as it may sound, sometimes feeling our feelings can be hard work. Truly understanding and being honest with authentic selves can be challenging and sometimes scary. No one should have to do this alone. Together, we can deeply listen and nurture your authentic self to help you heal and grow. We are not just talking together, we are experiencing. To learn more, visit my website at: nakaimatherapy.com

My therapeutic approach is guided by psychodynamic, attachment-based , and trauma-informed theory.
My therapeutic approach is guided by the philosophy that healing happens through connection. I strive to facilitate a process of healing that is client-led and welcomes all emotions. As your therapist, I believe in the power of being a compassionate witness and supporting individuals to access the power of their story. Taking the initiative to reach out for help can be difficult. My role is to guide you and facilitate a process that feels safe for you to begin to explore your emotions, thoughts, and behaviors.

Crises, transitions, and old patterns that no longer serve you can be daunting when you try to navigate them alone. I work to support you in discovering what you need and want in your life right now. I offer a kind, nonjudgmental space. In individual therapy I specialize in anxiety, managing difficult life situations/transitions, and exploring & establishing healthy boundaries. My work with couples is primarily informed by the Developmental Model of Couples Therapy, which holds that the relationship (the "couple bubble") is one that evolves through natural stages, each stage with its own challenges and opportunities.

Are you making it through the day, looking to the rest of the world as if you're doing just fine, but deep down inside you feel stuck and uninspired? Do you wonder what is holding you back from thriving in the world? In our hectic world we often find ourselves afraid to take risks that could jeopardize the stable lives we've created for ourselves. We remain in jobs, relationships and old patterns that no longer work, while symptoms such as anxiety, depression, stress, anger and self-defeating patterns keep us from making real changes to our lives.

Positive and healthy experiences in our lives can enrich us, make us feel connected and help us have a clear understanding of what we want and deserve in our lives. However, for many of us we may have also had negative or traumatic experiences which can affect our core belief systems, leaving us feeling unworthy, unlovable or stuck in a variety of other negative thought patterns or behaviors. Please allow me help you to work move towards the life you truly want to be living.

Many of my clients are successful professionals who are beginning to question whether they are on the right path. Some are searching for a more creative or spiritual way of life. Others crave relationships of greater substance. Still others seek clarity of purpose. Most feel limited by notions of what they have to be or do for the sake of others. You may have something in common with these people.

My therapeutic style is grounded in a humanistic approach and Cognitive-Behavioral therapy with a pragmatic, down-to-earth style. Each client's therapy is individualized, collaborative, and strengths based. I help clients learn to regulate and manage feelings that overwhelm them and negatively affect their thoughts, moods, and attitudes that, in turn, lead to destructive behavior. Whether it is anxiety, depression, diminished self-esteem, or relationship issues, individual clients come to understand their present circumstances in light of their past. I am committed to helping clients improve relationships and gain self knowledge.

Each client walks through my door with their own struggle. And although each person comes with their own unique story, the one thing that clients do share is a search for a more fulfilled life or a greater sense of self. I support clients as they navigate life's harder transitions - a loss of a relationship, the transition to becoming a parent, a job transition, or simply figuring out who they truly are and want to be. We work together to notice and shift your inner critic that so frequently gets in the way. Additionally, I support couples as they work through the challenges and desires that come with a relationship.
