Education:

I am an Asian-American (Nisei Japanese) licensed independent clinical social worker invested in exploring psycho-social-spiritual healing practices that work for you. My style is rooted in consistency and honesty. I value curiosity, reflection, creativity and humor as pathways of connection and collaboration. In sessions, I invite clients to co-create an open, liberated space for their wellness and mental health journeys. I approach individual therapy differently for each person and believe you know your life best! My role is to guide you through your own processes of self-discovery and growth opportunities that resonate with you.

I aim to offer an integrative approach within an anti-oppressive framework, rooted in social justice and culturally-responsive/affirming practice tailored to meet your needs. I utilize an intersectional lens to understand how anxiety, depression, stress and trauma-related concerns are impacted by systems of oppression. I am passionate about serving 2SLGBTQIA+ gender diverse people and communities of color, and attuned to how racism, classism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism and social stigma are experienced by individuals navigating the world. I look forward to connecting to see if we would be a good fit!
