Not currently accepting new clients.
I believe all of us are capable of change at any age with certain determinations and compassionate support. I myself took many detours before coming into a career in the mental health field and was stuck in dark phase of life where I felt lonely and worthless. Art helped me number of times in my dark moments. It gave me an opportunity to grow and let me express difficult emotions. I believe now it is my turn to help adults and young people in difficult situations and provide support, relaxation and opportunity for self-discovery through creative expression of art therapy.
I am currently doing a post graduate program in Art Therapy at Toronto Art Therapy Institute. I am originally from Japan and lived in different parts of the world, mostly as an international student. I have a deep understanding about many different cultures as well as the struggles of living in a foreign country as an immigrant.
In my free time, I like to bike, rollerblade, or make some fun videos. Sense of humor is also a big part of my personality. Sometimes when life gives you a curve ball, best thing to do is just take it easy on yourself and have some laughs. It might just help you switch your perspective and mood.
