I believe that everyone, when provided with a safe and supportive environment, is capable of overcoming the curveballs life throws our way. Therapy is a place that provides that environment. I’m happy that you’re here - and I want to congratulate you for taking your first big step toward positive change! Whether you’re going through a tough breakup, academic/career related stress, or struggling to find your own voice - there is no need to deal with your pain alone.
I will listen to you without judgment and empower you to take back authorship of your story. I will also help you unlearn coping skills that may have helped you survive, but not thrive. Above all, I will support you through every step of your journey, whether that is forward, sideways, or even backwards, as progress is rarely linear.
As a Japanese-Chinese American, I pride myself in a multicultural and collaborative approach to therapy. I am fully bilingual and can conduct sessions in English and Japanese. I don't believe in a one-size-fits-all approach and will tailor our sessions to meet your unique needs. I look forward to helping you get unstuck from whatever situation you came to therapy for, and to join you in this journey!
