About My Clients

Are you the second generation immigrant and often struggling between two or more cultures? Do you appreciate your parents' hard work, yet feel pressure of their high expectations? I know you might feel sharing family issues with outside the family is taboo, but I am trained to listen without judgement and psychotherapy allows you to hear yourself. I am here to listen to your story and together we can explore ways for you to feel better about yourself.

My Background and Approach

I grew up in Japan and moved to Indiana in 2001. In Indiana, I was actively involved at the International Center helping people from all over the world adjust their life in the U.S. After coming to California, I completed my Master's degree in Counseling Psychology at Santa Clara University and became a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, #103994. My passion is to work with immigrants and their descendants. I'm also intensively trained to work with the survivors/victims of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault. Some of the other issues I work with are; multicultural issues, family conflicts, trauma, social difficulties, grief and loss, or finding a purpose in life. It has been blessing to witness my clients' growth and change.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I want to lower the barrier for psychotherapy. You don't have to be severity depressed or anxious to seek therapy. Maybe you have been feeling down or frustrated and talked your friends' ears off. Come to my office before you lose your friends. The big difference between talking to your friends and talking to your therapist is you get full attention from your therapist. We are trained to listen without judgement. I believe you are the expert of yourself and have all the answers, just sometimes you feel lost. In session, I hope you feel safe to share your stories.
