Common therapeutic approaches that our therapists provide include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), Solution-Focused Therapy and Art Therapy.

For couple and/or family counseling, the initial session is 75 minutes where you will be meeting with your therapist as a couple/family together or separately depending on your needs and the therapist’s recommendations. Many of our therapists are Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists who hold their licenses in Japan and overseas.
