Seeking, entering into, and staying in therapy take a lot of courage. I believe therapy helps us reconnect more deeply with who we are and who we are becoming. Therapy gives us opportunities to explore what matters in our lives, how we affect one another individually or collectively, how we serve or support one another in our multi-layered environments, and how to cultivate meaningful relationships with people whom we encounter. Therapy offers opportunities to learn where we may be stuck emotionally and spiritually. In this process, we can find a “home” or a “safe and sacred” place within ourselves.


I am a cisgender Asian woman (she/her/hers), who is bilingual in English and Japanese. After spending my formative years in Japan, I moved to the United States and fulfilled my dream of studying counseling. My Ph.D. is in Counseling Psychology from Western Michigan University. Multicultural considerations, cultural humility, feminism, and social justice are central to my practice. As a therapist, I have been honored to work in higher education settings serving non-traditionally-aged and first-generation college students, as well as students from underrepresented and underserved communities. I cherish working with people from multiple social identities, such as BIPOC, LGBTQ, international, and immigrants, both documented and undocumented. Further, the importance of understanding our context and how they form intersecting identities is critical in my work.


Experienced in providing individual, group and couples therapy, I find strengthening our relationship with ourselves, our relationships with others, and beyond can help us deepen and lead a more meaningful life. A joy in my career has been co-leading interpersonal process therapy groups. Groups provide a space where our relational and interpersonal patterns emerge in front of our eyes, creating opportunities to make new choices and apply different approaches in our lives.


My therapeutic approaches are integrative, holistic, strength-based, relational, and experiential. Mindfulness and meditation are integral parts of this practice. I strive to create a safe, welcoming, and non-judgmental space, cultivating change and growth in the lives of my clients. I value being fully engaged, present, and invested in the presence of each and every person. It is a privilege and honor for me to be a part of your journey for growth and transformation. I welcome meeting with you to explore our goodness of fit.
