Life presents challenges, and I can help you navigate them. I am here to create a safe space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. You are the expert on you, and I bring my expertise in therapy. Together we can work to increase your capacity to meet life’s challenges. I am passionate about using evidence-based practices grounded in neuroscience to help you with anxiety, depression, or stress. You can rewire your brain to better support your goals. I welcome the opportunity to integrate your faith into the process of bringing lasting change.
I am a Berkeley graduate, a former engineer, and a professional clinical counselor trainee working toward a Master’s degree at the Townsend Institute at Concordia University Irvine. One of my greatest joys is holding safe space, listening to soul and Spirit, and honoring the beauty in every season of life. As a Japanese American, I have a special place in my heart for those who struggle with cultural issues, including shame and perfectionism. Whoever you are and wherever you are, I look forward to coming alongside you in your journey.
My specialties include anxiety, boundaries, cultural issues, depression, family of origin issues, life transitions, grief and loss, shame, spirituality, and stress management.
Fun Facts about Eileen
I love basketball, being out in nature, hiking, frequenting farmers’ markets, and scrapbooking. In different seasons of my life, I have been a hardware engineer, a software engineer, and a stay-at-home mom. I have been married for 24 years, have two children, and enjoy playing board games with my family. Because my curious cat is often nearby, he occasionally pops into online meetings.
