I am a clinical psychologist licensed in California (License Number PSY21359) and Japan (Registration Number 22577). I received my doctorate in clinical psychology from Alliant International University - California School of Professional Psychology San Francisco.
My recent focus has been on working with young children, adolescents, and their families. However, over the years, I have worked with a diverse population with a wide range of diagnoses. In the United States, I had internships at adult & child clinics, community mental health centers for adults, schools, and juvenile hall. I completed my post-doctoral internship at Kaiser Permanente (Child Psychiatry).
I have been practicing and teaching psychology in Kumamoto, Japan since 2007. In Japan, I have worked in psychiatric institutions, nursing homes, palliative care, schools and kindergartens.
