I was born and raised in Kobe, Japan, and came to the US to study and work. My experience of studying and working in both countries makes me "between person" in two cultures. I would like to use my background to help Japanese people who come to the US to adjust easier, and American people who have Japanese people as a student, a spouse, or a co-worker. Another reason I created Success Abroad Counseling is to provide a place where people can access to bilingual bicultural Japanese counselors from anywhere.
