Is your child exhibiting emotional and/or behavioral problems? Are you having problems with your relationships or at work? Are you feeling overwhelmed with anxiety or struggling with depression? I can help. In the safety of a caring and collaborative relationship, we will work on understanding how difficult life patterns are no longer serving you. My role is to meet my clients where they are and help guide them toward making lasting positive changes. I provide both short-term and long-term therapy. Call for a free consultation today!

My style is warm, engaged, and practical. I specialize in working with children and parents, Asian Americans, couples, and groups. With children, I use a combination of art, talk and play therapy. With adults, my approach is more eclectic and base treatment on what would be most helpful to them.

I am Japanese American with immigrant parents. I provide therapy in English and conversational Japanese. I work with clients from culturally diverse backgrounds and am competent in working with issues regarding acculturation, multi-generational differences and interracial relationships.
