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.

I highly recommend Fumi Takashina as an exceptional therapist. In the midst of ultimate turmoil and emotional distress following the death of a family member, Fumi provided me with the support and guidance I needed to navigate through one of the most challenging times in my life. I found her to be absolutely fantastic and truly skilled in active listening. She demonstrated an outstanding memory, which made our sessions more effective and productive. Fumi’s unique approach to therapy enabled me to process my emotions and move forward in ways I did not think was possible. Her dedication, empathy, and compassion are truly remarkable and inspiring. I cannot thank Fumi enough for the positive impact she has had on my life.

Fumi, is a genuine, kind individual. She truly cares, and is there when I need support. She has helped me realize many things about myself, and walks me through as I process. I was scared at first to start my journey of healing, but she has made it a calming/healing experience. I would recommend her without restrain to any seeking to heal.

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 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

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.
