About Me

Hi, I am so glad you're here. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor 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.

Written by M.O. on Jun 17, 2021 after counseling with Fumi for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, and self esteem

As a counselor, they're nothing short of amazing. Even when I'm struggling with my depression to keep up with my daily habits, I've stayed consistent with therapy for the first time ever. A great counselor who's really impacted my view of therapy. I'm immensely grateful for their impact on my journey.

Fumi has been a wonderful psychologist and partner on a journey to better mental health after a challenging Bipolar 2 diagnosis and has helped me reconnect better with my family, control my anxiety and helo create a treatment plan. She talks about anything I want to in a friendly yet professional manner and I actually don’t think I’d be as stable as I am now without her. Thanks you Fumi

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.

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.
