I  am  a  bilingual  US trained  clinical  psychologist  offering psychotherapy to adults, adolescents, children, and couples in English and Japanese. My specialties include relationship concerns, cultural adjustment, depression, anxiety, and trauma.

Individual therapy
I work to provide a safe space where you will be able to express your thoughts and feelings freely. It is often helpful to talk about these things with a therapist who is not involved with you in the way that your loved ones are. Via this process, you can unload things that are on your mind, obtain new perspectives about yourself or situations, feel more empowered in your situations, or simply feel better.

I work from a relational approach, which is to believe that the therapeutic relationship reflects on how you engage with people outside of the therapy room. I also take multicultural perspectives in treatment, meaning that I try to understand how we think, feel, and behave based on our cultural and societal contexts.

Furthermore, I use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) when I work with people with trauma.

Couple therapy
I work to provide a safe space where couples can express their thoughts and feelings to each other and hear the other in a non-defensive manner. In relationships, we may sometimes get stuck into patterns that hinder us from relating to our partner in a loving and satisfying manner. Couple therapy can be a great way to explore and understand what happens
between the two partners so that you can learn to communicate effectively with each other even during disagreements.
