About My Clients

I work with undergraduate/graduate students and adults who present with issues related to trauma, anxiety, depression, relationships, and identity/existential concerns.

My Background and Approach

I value a holistic perspective when treating psychological issues and offer therapy that creates constructive and meaningful change. My goal is to help you explore deeply engrained neuropathways and ways of coping that might not be as helpful anymore in order for you to have a stronger sense of agency in all aspects of your life. I prioritize collaboration with clients in exploring unconscious and procedurally-based patterns that occur in relationship with self and others. I work primarily from a contemporary psychodynamic lens and utilize a wide range of techniques including Internal Family Systems, psychedelic integration, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, narrative therapy, interpersonal/relational therapy, Self psychology, and Motivational Interviewing.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I identify as hapa and Japanese-American and am passionate about matters of identity, race, culture, and social justice. As a descendant of Japanese-Americans interned during WWII, I am passionate about the exploration of intergenerational trauma and resilience.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
