All of life can prove to be a resource for our learning, presenting a challenge for us to understand the demands that life makes upon us, whether it is in what we enjoy or in the experiences which cause us conflict and pain.”
— Patrick Casement, 2006



in practice since 2003

The profound richness and intricacy of the interactions between the child and her/his caregiver has always been of great interest to me. After practicing more than 18 years in the counselling field, working with children, adolescents and adults, I have come to appreciate the importance of these interactions as well as their impact on our adult life.


My experience includes extensive work with school age children and their parents as a school psychologist as well as with adolescents and adults as a residential psychotherapist at the university hospital and counselling centres. I provide my services in English and Japanese, and my international relocation experience allows me to pay particular attention and appreciation to the cultural values and beliefs of each individual, regardless of their age or cultural background.

My educational background includes a MA in Counseling from Webster University and a Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) in Perinatal and Early Childhood from University of Geneva and Lausanne, Switzerland. I am licensed to work independently as a Clinical Psychologist in Japan, and I am registered as a psychological counsellor in Geneva. I am a certified MBT-C practitioner, registered by Anna Freud Centre in UK.
