About Kyoko

Kyoko was born and raised in Japan and is bilingual/bicultural in English and Japanese. She completed a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from John F. Kennedy University in 2007. Before opening her private practice, she worked in a variety of clinical settings such as out-patient clinics, schools, and in-home therapy with a wide range of issues. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Kyoko has worked successfully with people dealing with life transitions, PTSD, grief, relationship issues, cross-cultural issues, and many other concerns as well as complex medical conditions. She has also worked extensively with Asians, Asian-Americans, immigrants from various cultural backgrounds, and mixed-race individuals and couples.

In her practice, Kyoko incorporates current research in the field of attachment, trauma, and neurobiology as well as psychodynamic theories with her primary orientation in somatic psychotherapy. Her work is also informed by her life experiences as an international student, immigrant, and a longtime student of Buddhism and non-dualistic wisdom teachings.

Kyoko has been a student of meditation since her childhood. Her daily meditation practice has helped her develop greater inner peace and deep understanding that everyone has an innate ability to calm the mind and access their truth and wisdom that reside within. In addition to her psychotherapy practice, Kyoko enjoys teaching mindfulness and meditation techniques and she helps people find an approach that works for them.
