Individual, Couples & Family Counseling

in  Mission Viejo, Ca


I wouldn't be where I am today without the therapeutic experience I had with Yoshimi. I am currently in MFT graduate school about to end my first year. Her lessons have stayed with me and will continue to for the rest of my life. She taught me about myself in a way I wasn't expecting, continuously and genuinely believed in me, and most of all gave me hope. I hope to one day have an effect on someone's life the way she has on mine.

T hank you for helping me through what was a really dark time in my life. You were the first person to label the issues in my family honestly, and as it turned out, you hit the nail on the head. Thanks for helping me lay a foundation to become a stable person.

-S. Cohen

In the years I have known Yoshimi, she has proved time and again that she is a leader. She is unafraid to go into the places that make everyone else uncomfortable, and as a result, she rebuilds your life to the point where it is unrecognizable. I am a testament to the gifts Yoshimi selflessly shares, gifts that most people are so unwilling to give to the very people who need it most, the broken and weak. Her character and very core flows with compassion, grace and love which makes her a great therapist. She has reshaped my life and helped plant seeds of positive changes that are still blossoming and growing to this day. During the many times I was unable to stand on my own, Yoshimi served as my rock, my foundation. Now that I am in a better place, I can walk and run on my own and truly appreciate the time that she invested in me. Counseling services

She is phenomenal. An extremely patient woman who knows when to speak at the right time, she is interested and provides invaluable insight.  She has a way of making you realize what you never consciously thought of.

This allowed me to look deep within and understand the reasons for my feelings. She will change your life.                                   - J.C., College Student

I have known Yoshimi for over 18 years.  I have seen her turn around the lives of troubled youth, challenge her clients to make the critical choices needed, and genuinely care about each person she touches.  She is sharp, highly emotionally intelligent and ethical in her professional and personal life."       - Dar O'Rourke, Licensed Marital and Family Therapist
