Feeling overwhelmed, stressed and stuck? Looking for changes in your life through therapy? I am an Art Therapist/Psychotherapist offering art therapy and counseling services to children, teens, adults and families in Bellevue and Seattle, WA. You can choose from the art therapy studio in the Ballard area, or the counseling offices in Bellevue.
Studio Mene Bellevue office was moved to a new location! The address is 875-140th Ave. NE, Suite 203, Bellevue, WA 98005 on August 6, 2012
Through art therapy or talk –therapy, I can guide you toward improving the problem areas of your life and bringing back happiness, conflict free family life with your children and spouse, and good problem solving skills without anger, sadness and stress.
In art therapy, you do not need previous art experience or artistic skills. Through creating images which reflect your issues and strength by drawing, painting or clay works, you can visualize and clarify your problems and struggles. You can see the area of conflict objectively and together we can come up with creative solutions for your troubles and work toward what you want in your life.. The creating process itself is relaxing, joyful and therapeutic. Art therapy is especially effective as a drug-free treatment for depression, anger, and other situations that require individuals to learn how to deal with their emotions and process them in a healthy manner. I provide a safe environment for you and/or your family to explore your feelings and creative abilities to produce life-changing results.
If you prefer talk –therapy, you can choose to do counseling in my office setting. I am bilingual in English and Japanese. I have been effective in helping to solve problems rooted in diverse cultures, relationship problems and children’s issues .
Let me help you to cope/resolve with some of the difficulties you face in the following areas:
- Life transitions
- Chronic illnesses
- Loss and grief
- Stress management
- Anger management
- Children’s issues such as ADHD and behavior problems
- Autism Spectrum disorders, Asperger’s
- and many others

Mene means “mountain top” in Japanese. The experience of art therapy and counseling is like taking a long hike to climb up a mountain. My hope in naming my studio “Studio Mene” is to help you take a journey of self discovery as well as assist you in climbing to the top of your mountain so you can look at the beautiful view with a sense of personal accomplishment.
