I was born in Aomori in 1961. I came to Tokyo for college and majored in English Literature. After my graduation I got married and had a baby girl. I’ve been teaching English to children for 15 years, including a period of teaching at the YMCA.
I developed depression at the age of 42, and the condition recurred periodically over the next nine years. When I was 50 years old I had a counseling session for the first time in my life and saw a ray of light in my future.
Then I found the Shiina Stress-Care Institute and started learning how to fight depression, and later I became a psychological counselor. My specialty is counseling depressed people, and I limit my treatment to female foreign students and the wives and employees posted in Japan.
The Languages that I use are English and Japanese.
