Notes:
I have earned master’s degrees in counseling and psychology in New York, and had 2 years of clinical experience in the U.S. and 5 years of it in Japan (Sep 2020). I earned Ph.D. degree in the field of multiculturalism in counseling. In counseling sessions, I especially value imagination and empathy in order to respect various clients’ needs. If you expect your counselor to be a “native speaker,” unfortunately I am not the one. However, if you expect your counselor to be culturally sensitive and understandable with skills of empathy, I could be one of your choice. Please do not hesitate to call us, anytime you have any concern.
