Dr. Kayoko Hayashi-Bonnecuelle
Bilingual US trained clinical psychologist offering individual psychotherapy to adults, adolescents, and children, and couple therapy in English and Japanese.
My specialties include relationship concerns, cultural adjustment, depression, anxiety, and trauma.
In individual therapy, I work to provide a safe space where you will be able to express your thoughts and feelings freely. It is often helpful to discuss these things with a therapist who is not involved with you in your life in the way that your loved ones are. Via this process, you can unload things that are on your mind, obtain new perspectives about yourself or situations, feel more empowered in your situations, or simply feel better.
In couple therapy, I work to provide a safe space where couples can express their thoughts and feelings to each other and hear the other in a non-defensive manner. In relationships, we may sometimes get stuck into patterns that hinder us from relating to our partner in a loving and satisfying manner. Couple therapy can be a great way to explore and understand what happens between the two partners so that you can learn to feel engaged with each other even during disagreements.
I appreciate that choosing a therapist is a personal process, so please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about myself or the therapy that I conduct.
