Overview

While the first step is the hardest, I have seen what a difference therapy has made in the lives of many clients.

My therapeutic approach is grounded in evidenced-based approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Internal Family Systems Therapy to help clients obtain coping skills, resiliency, challenging negative thinking patterns, healing emotional wounds and creating a life that brings balance and peace.

I previously worked many years in the technology field so I understand the struggles of work-life balance . I am also third generation Japanese-American, so while I grew up in a very "Americanized" household, Japanese cultural beliefs and traditions were still a part of my life. I believe it is important to create a safe space where clients feel heard and respected and where I can be a supportive, collaborative and compassionate partner.

I am currently accepting telehealth appointments and would be honored to work with you.
