Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist in California who is experienced in working with adolescents, young adults, and individuals with trauma histories. As a biracial Japanese American, I am also experienced in working with Asian American clients and can offer a unique clinical perspective regarding cultural issues relating to Asian American cultures.
As a clinical psychologist, I have trained and worked in a variety of settings including community mental health agencies, pre-schools, elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, and supported housing communities. I feel that my experiences working with a wide range of people and problems helps me approach clients' issues with an open mind and heart. My beliefs about people being the experts on their own lived experiences guides a lot of my work. As your therapist, I will work collaboratively with you and/or your family to explore the various ways problems have influenced your life, and together we will identify your strengths and resources needed to achieve your goals and thrive.
