Are you lonely, feeling depressed and hopeless thinking that life has passed you by? Are you struggling with a transition in your life: empty nest, divorce, newly married, or the loss of a loved one or a new job? I have worked with individuals, couples and families struggling with these issues. I help clients acquire direction and tools to move beyond old "non working"patterns in their lives. I work to see your growth through empowerment, direction and education.

I have worked with children of all ages and their families in the areas of depression, domestic violence and PTSD. I enjoy working with seniors and young adults as they individuate and others who are adjusting to living in a new culture, here in Silicon Valley or the United States.I am fluent in Japanese.

I view my relationship with my client as collaborative; you decide what your goals are and I help you meet them. I am intuitive, warm and practical in my approach to therapy. I have been trained in psychodynamic, family systems, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness and Gottman Couples Therapy.
