All relationships are unique, with their own complex challenges. Especially, when there are cultural differences involved, it is not uncommon for couples to feel overwhelming. As priorities change, such as children, family, personal interests, career and work, a relationship may experience ups and downs in communication, understanding, physical intimacy or affection etc.
The sooner a couple address these challenges, the easier it can be to improve communication and the deal with the stress and conflict. I work with couples to work through their issues to achieve long, healthy and rewarding relationships. My methodology is based on Dr. John Gottman Couple Counseling who has been researching couples for 40 years.
The support services are available in both Japanese and English in the areas of pre-marriage counseling to couples who are considering getting married, and couples-counseling for any couples who are experiencing challenges.

In the midst of tragedy and uncertainty, I can't help feeling optimistic about the future. This is because I have the privilege of working with people who are eager to grow and to change. It may not be an exaggeration to say that counseling is one of the most adventurous and meaningful journeys one can embark on in life. It would be an honor to accompany you for a while along your way.
