To provide convenient service to my clients, my office hours are flexible with some time reserved for evening and weekend appointments: Tuesday to Friday from 10:00 - 8:00 and Saturday from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.

If you make contact by email, I will do my best to reply within 24 hours of receiving your email. If you call during those times and I am with a client, or otherwise unavailable, you will reach my confidential voicemail. Please leave a message that includes your name and telephone number and I will do my best to return your call within 24 hours. If you have any concerns about confidentiality, please include these limitations with your message. 


My counselling studio is nestled in one of the most beautiful settings of Nagoya’s suburbs, on the border of Meitoku and Nisshinshi near Shukutoku University, Nagoya Gakuin Daigaku, and Nagoya Gaikokugo Daigaku. The forest view from the studio is stunning; infusing the studio with privacy, calm, and renewal. A perfect location for self-reflection!

If you request an appointment, I will give you detailed directions to my counselling studio and information about parking. 


In mutually agreed upon circumstances, video counselling using ZOOM™, a private, secure and stable platform, may be used as an alternative to in person counselling. The visual contact allows me to track your body’s communications, things like changes in the face (a grimace or a grin, etc) or posture (collapsed or confident, etc). More importantly, I've found that working face to face allows us to build rapport, and feel more engaged, and connected.

Online Counselling is presently only available for individuals. I currently work with couples in person only.
