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.

I take clients starting from age 6yrs and above. My therapeutic style is interactive, inclusive and supportive. I facilitate my client's exploration of the root of traumatic events from a nurturing and empowering perspective. I view the healing process as a sacred and vulnerable experience and create a safe and empowering environment for exploration and healing. It is a privilege to walk alongside a person through their healing journey.
