Tokyo Mental Health would like to welcome Nicole, a Licensed Social Worker from New York City.

Hello everyone,

I am happy to begin my work here at Tokyo Mental Health. In addition to providing counseling services, I will also be contributing to the TMH Blog and participating in research, among other functions. Before coming to Japan, I performed counseling for individuals and families who were living in their own apartment for the first time, after being homeless for a long period of time. My favorite part of working in social services and mental health, is being able to give people a safe space to express themselves, and discuss things that they might otherwise have a hard time discussing. Learning to manage or work through mental health struggles can be a difficult process, and I hope to be able to support my clients through it. I am often at the reception desk, so please feel free to say hi when you arrive at our Shintomi office!
