I am particularly interested in working with people struggling with the on going effects of problematic learning experiences like abuse, neglect and loss; especially those of early childhood. Often people suffering from the painful effects of traumatic experiences have never really felt whole, known peace or felt truly acceptable. Much too often they blame themselves. Bouts of depression and anxiety are all too frequent. In therapy you undo the underlying causes of fear, shame and grief that drive depression, anxiety and dissociation. You learn how to live a life that is meaningful, satisfying and free of the ties that bind.

I am specialized in supporting individuals and couples seeking meaningful relationships. Wile (1993) said, “A great deal of conflict is about the conversation a couple never had." The majority of couples separate without having the conversation. That is the tragedy, more than the separation itself. Then, how do you know you can make it through in the next love? How do you create a quality relationship? How do you determine he or she is your life partner? Is it possible to feel close once again? Those questions are not easy to ask or answer. 海外で生活される日本人の方々に、異文化適応やコミュニケーション向上をサポート。日本語と英語のバイリンガルサービス が可能で、15分無料セッション提供中。

I work with individuals ages 18 and up, as well as couples and parents. I believe symptoms are a request from the psyche to grow -- whether this manifests as depression, anxiety, or just a feeling that you want more from your life or your relationships. Or you may be experiencing a transition, grief, or loss and need support to navigate this change. Therapy creates a space in which healing and growth can happen. I believe humans have a natural, inherent tendency toward health and self-actualization. We are hard-wired to live good and meaningful lives, but sometimes need support to do so.

Emotionally Focused Therapists
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Seattle Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
