A Note from Sunny
I have 18 years of experience specializing in relationships and commutations - particularly in the cross-cultural relationships.
I am bilingual in English and Japanese, and bridging Western psychology and ancient Eastern wisdoms to bring insights and awareness to deepen the relationships you care the most.
I am open to work with clients with any cultural background, and to support your relationships to more joyful, fulfilling, and meaningful.
I personalize my approach to you - taking into consideration your specific needs and goals and your given situation and challenges in your relationships.
We can also accomplish your goals by identifying patterns, emotional triggers, communication and attachment styles, cultural and generational differences, and etc.
By understanding the gap of the expectations and roles, you can become more aware of the blind spots which might have been contributing the frustrations and disconnections in your relationships.
I am keen on exploring your strengths in all aspects of your life and empower you to feel more resilient in achieving your goals. Depending on your needs and goals, we can build your confidence by developing practical tools such as emotional resiliency, communications, parenting, or management skills.
I work with individuals and couples - working professionals, parents, students, and adults who have diverse cultural backgrounds.
Let's allow to put yourself on the top priority, and begin the work together to see the new possibilities!

In Japan, there is a word called "Kotodama or Kototama (言霊)." Koto 言 means "word," and tama 霊 means "spirit." (or 魂 "soul" which refers to the mystical powers that dwell in words, and it could be interpreted as "force" or "intent" in North America.
If we pay attention carefully to the words that we use every day, we'll soon understand what the mind intends to accomplish. When you listen to your body in a mindful and quiet way, you'll notice whether or not your intent is aligned with your true desire.
In other words, spirit lives in your body, and thoughts live in your brain. Often times, struggles are the result of these inner polarities.
When mind, body, and spirit are connected to the present moment, answers that you may be looking for for a long time would come to you effortlessly, and can see the hole new possibilities that you never dreamed of!
