Hi, I'm Aki. Let's Talk.
I’m a licensed marriage and family therapist in Oakland, CA. Most days, you can find me helping people heal from past wounds, navigate life changes, and process big feelings. While a lot of the work I do requires delving into the murky stuff, I like to make room for laughter, connection, and joy in the process.
I was born and raised in the Bay Area and am committed to working with clients in this ever evolving landscape. Prior to starting a private practice, I spent a number of years working in community mental health settings with marginalized children, adolescents and adults. I identify as a bi-racial, multi-cultural, second generation American. I have a special place in my heart for clients navigating issues of racial identity, minority experiences and systemic oppression.
