Thank you for visiting the webiste. I am a licensed psychologist in PA and have an independent practice in Center City, Philadelphia.
In addition to generalist training in the treatment of various mental health concerns, my interest and areas of expertise include working with individuals who struggle with eating disorders/concerns, mental health of individuals who belong to ethnic/racial minority groups, cross cultural issues related to immigration/multucultural background, and life transition for adults and young adults.
I am versed in using skill-based approaches, especially that focus on regulating emotions, as well as in a relational approach that attends to connections we make in our lives and their impact on our present lives. Furthermore, I find cultivating Mindfulness can help us attend to the importance of staying in the present rather than getting lost in past memories or being preoccupied with worries about the future. Non-judgmental stance of mindfulness helps us develop compassion toward ourselves and others, leading to a rich and fulfilling life with new perspectives and options.
I am a bilingual psychologist and can conduct therapy in both English and Japanese. You can contact me using this website, calling or emailing to make your first appointment or for consultation. I look forward to hearing from you.
