Greetings everyone,

 

My background is rooted in education and counseling. I have been involved in education for almost twenty years, specializing in special education support and counseling. I have worked with students with various issues, including emotional challenges, autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, and learning challenges. I worked with at-risk teenagers to help them succeed educationally and socially in these areas. I developed outreach programs for schools to allow students with severe anxiety and attendance problems to gain their high school diplomas. I have also worked at an administrative level in schools.

 

Since 2012 I have focused on counseling and worked with adults and teenagers with anxiety, depression, cultural challenges, and bullying. I have also worked in educational counseling, focusing on university applications, international schooling in Japan, and career guidance.

 

My focus is on the following areas:

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Cultural stress

  • Group therapy

  • Trauma

  • Sexuality and gender identity

  • CBT for couples

  • Special Educational Needs

 

My therapeutic training focuses on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and choice therapy. I continue to work on professional development to ensure that I can maximize my skills for my clients. 

 

I look forward to working with you for mental health, special needs consultation, or educational needs.
