Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Anxiety Therapy and Career Counseling I work one-on-one with people struggling with high anxiety and panic. Whether you struggle with panic attacks, intense fear, social anxiety, shyness, or performance anxiety, I work with you collaboratively to identify what works best for you in your healing journey. I believe in organic healing of mind and body dysfunction and help you draw upon your inner strengths to live and thrive. Anxiety Therapy can be brief and solution-focused or long-term through deeper exploration. To treat panic, help you reduce anxiety and better function day to day, I address problematic thinking and behavior, then teach you how to do it differently. Breathe, eat, physically move, and sleep for healing. Career Counseling: Learn to communicate your qualifying skills through your resume, demonstrate your value-add through an interview, and convince the key decision maker to hire you. The process is a two-way street, and we will work toward the right fit both ways. Born in the Midwest, I am fourth generation Japanese-American (Yonsei) with Hawaiian cultural influence. I welcome varying ethnic, cultural, and religious lifestyles into my professional practice. Being LGBTQ-friendly is important and preferred by many of my clients.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Temecula, CA

I’ve been in private practice in Temecula since 1990. I work with individuals, couples and families on a variety of issues, using a straight-forward approach to problem solving. While I listen with empathy, I am an “active” therapist, meaning I make suggestions, give direction and homework to partner with my clients so they can solve their problems in a timely, effective manner.
