Accepting Clients

I am here to support you on your journey of self-prioritization. I offer both virtual and in-person sessions in English and Japanese.

Licensed Master of Social Work in Brooklyn, NY
Supervised by Liz Silverman, LCSW


About My Clients

I work with clients who are experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, and issues in relationships, and clients who are wanting to explore their gender and sexual identities and their racial and cultural identities.

My Background and Approach

I approach therapy as an honest and collaborative relationship between the client and the therapist. Together, we will uncover the origins of your struggles, emotions, thoughts, and beliefs, which might entail exploring your childhood, cultural background, identities, and relationships you have experienced thus far. As I learn more about you, your personality, and the way your mind works, I will tailor your sessions using a mix of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Being a queer person of color myself, I fully understand the hesitations and concerns that can arise when seeking therapy. It is my priority to provide a safe, reassuring, and inclusive space for all of my clients. In my practice, I actively challenge oppressive systems and work from anti-oppressive, culturally inclusive, and LGBTQ+ affirmative perspectives.
