I hold a Masters of Counseling Psychology with a concentration in MFT and Expressive Arts Therapy from the California Institute of Integral Studies and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of California, Berkeley. I am also a president of Blue Humming Therapy and a licensed counselor in Japan.


In my practice, I have integrated various therapeutic modalities to provide an effective and compassionate approach to improving self-esteem, building healthier relationships and alleviating symptoms of depression, anxiety, stress, and trauma.


I have always enjoyed working with culturally diverse populations while working in both the US and Japan. I currently offer the counseling at the private practice setting and the hospital( John Muir Health) in San Francisco Bay Area and

I have offered individual and group therapy for survivors in Fukushima, Japan since 2011.



I help my clients heal, make the changes they want, and create the life they desire. I believe that we all have the capacity to grow, heal and change.
