Nozomi Kitagawa: I am a Licensed Health Mental Counselor (LMHC) and my techniques include EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) and CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) methods. I love helping people heal themselves and move forward to find their true paths. Traumatic events often lead people to self-discovery and spiritual growth. However, healing from trauma does not happen overnight. It takes a lot of commitment and efforts, but it is extremely rewarding. My knowledge stems from working with people who have experienced childhood trauma, partner abuse, domestic violence, and spiritual/religious trauma. I have also worked with many people struggling with interpersonal issues such as divorce, co-dependency, sexuality, and LGBT issues.
