Hello! Thank you so much for reading my profile.
My name is Chisato, which means "a 1000 homelands." Just like my name, I try to be a "homeland" to people, where they can feel safe.
I obtained my Bachelor's Degree from University of California, Berkeley. While I was going to school, I decided that I wanted to branch outside my school to see what ways I can give back to the community, while also learning new skills. I found a passion and a love in rape crisis counseling. I volunteered as a rape crisis counselor for years, where I worked with children and adults, sexually exploited minors, police officers and hospital staff. I also helped train other rape crisis advocates too. :)
Afterward, I obtained my master's degree from Pepperdine University and became licensed as a marriage and family therapist and a licensed professional clinical counselor. I also obtained my Doctorate in social work from University of Southern California in May 2021. I have a lot of experience with anyone ages 4 and up, as well as families and couples.
My passion is creating a safe place for you to explore your difficulties and to help you find new skills in dealing with them together.
I would love to speak with you more if you feel that we may be a good fit! :)
About online counseling
Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.
