Announcement icon I am continuing to offer services during the pandemic through a video telehealth platform that is easy, secure, and HIPAA-compliant.
Therapy with me is a place of active change. I help people manage stress and reduce overwhelm, strengthen relationships, build resilience, and move from "stuckness" into growth. My patients come to me to shift thinking styles, improve communication, and increase productivity. I use evidence-based practices (such as CBT and mindfulness) to enhance self-awareness, build skills, and achieve targeted goals. We also explore core beliefs and behavior patterns to deepen self-understanding. With couples, my work is informed by the Gottman Method and Emotionally Focused Therapy. My office is located in a beautiful, peaceful marina setting.
I have two specialties. With a background in health/medical psychology and biofeedback, I have a focus on mind-body health and chronic pain/illness management. I teach non-pharmaceutical techniques to reduce pain flares, treat insomnia, bolster mood, and optimize the body's healing processes. Healthy eating and exercise are achievable goals with me.
My other passion is Asian multicultural counseling. As a 2nd generation Japanese American, I am fluent in Japanese and specialize in providing culturally attuned services. I am committed to serving people of Asian origin, addressing issues such as identity, racial bias, cross-cultural relationships, intergenerational conflict, and culture-specific values.
