I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Certified Hypnotherapist who truly enjoy helping people live their lives to their full potential. I see challenges in life as opportunities for growth, and invitation to better ourselves. I have a masters degree in clinical psychology and working in the mental health field for over a decade helping clients achieve successful results.

I am originally from Tokyo and speak fluent Japanese and English. I specialize in helping individuals with self esteem issues, childhood and relational traumas, interracial couples and families, cross-cultural issues, parenting issues and relational issues.

I believe everyone has their own answers inside, so I utilize strength-based approach in my sessions. In therapy, you will learn more about yourself and know how to manage your own feelings and thoughts better, no matter the situation. I’m excited to collaboratively work with you to help you become the best version of yourself in your life journey!
