TOKYO | ONLINE:  I am a licensed clinical psychologist from the U.S. (St. Paul, Minnesota) where I earned my doctoral degree and worked for five years in a private practice before moving to Tokyo in 2016. Perhaps you are feeling like Dorothy in the land of Oz— somewhat disoriented and struggling with transitions. Or you may have been in Japan awhile, but could use some help in addressing emotional or relational difficulties that are more challenging in a new environment. I would like to help. As you may have discovered when you moved, emotional issues tag along, and, in some cases, grow in the face of foreign life stressors. My private practice provides a safe, supportive space that makes room for you to explore, identify and process these issues and move towards a more intentional life with greater freedom, decreased compulsive and impulsive behaviors, and healthier relationships. ​Now that’s the place in which we would all like to live!

Notes: From a psychodynamic perspective, my understanding of your problem takes into account relational patterns developed in childhood. My stance will sometimes be reflective and clarifying of what you express, and at other times more active as you explore and try to understand behaviors or painful emotions that may be blocking change or growth. Central to all my work is the belief that change occurs as self-awareness grows.
