About me

Hi, I am so glad you're here. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Qualified Supervisor in the state of Florida with over 15 years of combined life coaching, executive coaching, and psychotherapy/ counseling experience. I have had the honor of working with clients across a broad spectrum of lived experiences. I have worked with clients experiencing anxiety, depression, LGBTQIA+ identifying clients, relationship issues, career challenges, self-esteem, grief, substance abuse, trauma, racial inequity/ injustice, and much more.

I would summarize my counseling style as a blend of Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as well as other modes, tailoring to my clients' needs and where they currently are in their journey. My approach of therapy is interactive, empathetically assertive, guiding you towards creating a resilient sense of self, and ensuring I hold a safe space for my clients. I help you to uncover and work through hidden parts of yourself to live your most authentic life. I equip you with the right tools so that you can stand strong on your own. I am here to guide and support you along this journey of self-discovery and equip you with the right skills to help you make the best decisions for your life.

You have made the first step towards doing something for yourself to live the life you want and deserve.

I look forward to working with you.

Great therapist who has helped me see things quickly by guiding me and not handing me the answer.

Written on Oct 14, 2022 after therapy with Fumi for 4 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, self esteem, anger management, bipolar disorder, and adhd

Fumi is doing a wonderful job. I have quite a bit of confidence in her and I know that she will help me make it through this turmoil.

Written on Sep 24, 2022 after therapy with Fumi for 1 year and 10 months on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

Fumi has helped me reach goals and understand a lifetime of trauma. She is helping me prepare for the next chapter. Her concern for her patients and her dedication are inspiring

Written on Nov 12, 2021 after therapy with Fumi for 11 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, and self esteem

My therapist has been what's kept me afloat during this time because they're so understanding and gentle. I'm insanely grateful for having the chance to actually call them my therapist. This is the first time I've remained consistent with therapy in my entire life and it's because I'm held accountable with care, but also my therapist makes me actually look forward to sessions each week. I even programmed a session for my birthday because that's how safe and supported I feel during therapy. I look forward to continuing my journey along side my therapist, Fumi Takashina.

Fumi has been a wonderful support and helped me through some incredibly challenging times. I don’t know where I’d be without her to be honest. I wouldn’t be as confident or happy that’s for sure. It’s really nice to know someone’s there to listen to my crazy week who isn’t biased and who really knows me. I feel her investment in my life much more than just a random paid person. Love her

The best counselor I have found in 4 years

Written on Jan 23, 2021 after therapy with Fumi for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, grief, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Fumi is kind and gentle, but also very intelligent and wise. She works around my schedule and helps me through any problem that I bring to the session. She is flexible and forgiving with my mistakes, but does not hold back when it comes to advice and implementing proactive solutions.

Written on Dec 05, 2020 after therapy with Fumi for 2 weeks on issues concerning grief, parenting issues, and coping with life changes

In one session I already feel at ease and supported. Casual yet down to business. When I didn’t book again she contacted me to see how I was doing.

Work with me!
