We will take a deep look at troublesome symptoms like depression, anxiety, trauma, interpersonal conflicts, and chronic health issues. In order to make real changes to your life, we will define habitual coping patterns that are built into your mind and body, namely your unique defensive structure, and slowly uncover difficult past events and feelings that you buried to survive. These character aspects are now blocking your healthy self-expressions and authentic self. Eventually your growing self-awareness and the release of long-held emotions will take you to a new life phase.
As a bilingual and bicultural therapist I help with cross-cultural struggles and work with relationship conflicts of interracial couples/families. Dysfunctional interaction styles are examined from 3 angles: differences in cultural backgrounds, character styles, and life/family histories. This comprehensive approach will reduce arguments effectively and enhance mutual understanding.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist. My style of therapy is warm, collaborative, intuitive, and always deeply engaged. In the course of therapy, I address the body-mind interface because our emotional traumas can turn into biological conflicts and guide clients with chronic health issues to identify emotional issues underneath.
現代の生活リズムはとても早く、毎日の生活に追われ、ストレス源も多く、自分の心の声に耳を傾けることは忘れられがちです。心の疲れや不調は、うつや不安、パニック、不眠、過食、慢性的な体の不調といったさまざまな形をとって現れます。ひとりで悩まず、心の中の思いをカウンセラーに話していくことで、抑えこんでいた感情が徐々に吐き出され、混乱していた思考が整理されていきます。
新しい国に移り住み、その文化に適応していくことには、さまざまな困難がともないます。言葉の壁は大きく、文化の違いによる摩擦や誤解も頻繁に起こります。母国語、母国の文化、母国で育まれたアイデンティティの一部を放棄し、移住先の文化を受け入れることには、痛みや混乱がともないます。カウンセリングの場では、その心の痛みに目を向け、アイデンティティの分裂を修復し、心の再生と自信の回復をはかります。
個人のカウンセリングとともに、カップルや家族のカウンセリングも行っています。人種や文化の違いから生じる関係性の問題は複雑ですが、相手の立場を理解するためのディープリスニング・エクササイズを基本に、どのような状況で関係がこじれるのか、文化の違い、性格の違い、生い立ちの問題を通して見ていきます。
