Dr. Takasawa’s approach to therapy is shaped by her Christian faith. She believes that psychotherapy is about safely and openly exploring and processing through one’s struggles, stuck points, and areas of difficulty to come into a place of healing, hope, and growth.
She is a skilled therapist and committed Christian who brings her professional interest and unique perspectives to issues involving relationships, life transitions, stress and anxiety, depression, and spiritual struggles.
She believes that therapy includes the process of coming to know oneself better with a clearer, more confident sense of identity and increased capacity to love self, others, and God. In this way, we tend to come into a greater sense of peace and empowerment.
While Dr. Takasawa’s approach to psychotherapy is informed by her faith, she maintains an accepting and non-judgmental stance and is open to working with people of all faiths, including those who are uncertain of their spiritual beliefs.
Dr. Takasawa is a licensed psychologist, and holds a doctoral degree in clinical psychology from the American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University, Hawaii. She was the recipient of the “Outstanding Clinical Skills Award” of her doctoral class. She works with adult individuals.
