About

I believe that each person's life is unique and precious no matter how the person perceives it. I believe in our innate healing power, resilience, and creativity. I work with teens and adults who are suffering from depression, anxiety, anger, and other emotional distress related to loss & grief, relational conflict, traumatic events, and life transitions. Together, we work to increase your awareness, expand your capacity to perceive realities and new perspectives, and to grow to be something larger than current self. I also work with intercultural couples who are seeking better communication for greater mutual understanding.
My theoretical bases are the Jungian concept of human development, trauma-informed care, attachment theory, neuroscience, and awareness of body-mind connection, mindfulness, CBT, EMDR and art therapy. My attitude is warm and non-judgmental. While verbal communication is essential in therapy, I also value non-verbal expression to see a person holistically.
Through my experience of living in both Japan and US, I have developed sensitivity toward different ways of expression, perception, bias, defense, and value systems. I appreciate diversity. Keeping balance and harmony is my goal.
