The Tokyo Meguro Counseling Center is a counseling and psychology mental health service in Tokyo that provides caring and compassionate professional English speaking psychotherapy and Psychopharmacology-Integrated Psychotherapy by American therapists native to and professionally trained in the United States. The Center has provided counselling and psychological care in Tokyo for the international community, as well as counseling in Japanese for the local Japanese community since opening in 1992, and in New York City for many years before relocating to Tokyo. The therapists at the Tokyo Meguro Counseling Center are experienced in individual counseling for children, adolescents, and adults, marriage and couples counseling (particularly inter-cultural counseling for Japanese-Western couples), family counseling, divorce counseling, life counseling, career counseling and coaching, and group psychotherapy. Corporate training and conflict resolution is also available, please inquire for details. Phone or Skype distance counseling is often conducted for persons living in Kansai (Kobe, Osaka, and Kyoto) and other areas of Japan that are far from our location in Tokyo.

Some of the more common problems that the therapists at the Tokyo Meguro Counseling Center have experience treating include self-confidence problems, relationship/family problems, depression and manic depression, anxiety (GAD) and panic disorder, eating disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) phobias, social anxiety disorder (SAD), alcohol and substance abuse, ADD and ADHD treatment, traumatic experiences (PTSD)/child abuse, feelings of unreality, sleep disturbances, psychosomatic (mind/body) disorders, women’s issues, gay, lesbian and transgender issues, sex addiction, and child and adolescent disturbances. The Tokyo Meguro Counseling Center therapists have considerable experience in the treatment of anxiety and depression in Tokyo. See an article on Depession in the Tokyo Families Magazine.

Clients who entrust the Meguro Counseling Center with their counseling needs are treated kindly and professionally, and the work at hand in the care of these persons and their issues is taken extremely seriously.

Pts given 2-mos of CBT-ib (insomnia/bipolar): https://t.co/Gp5qCz4P7h. Dr. Aiken states to give the “expectation..they..deserve a full remission.” But giving expectations to an unblinded cohort w/no placebo control is the exact thing to avoid. https://t.co/UKcXpxJdqE

This article does not conclude that vaping is more dangerous than tobacco https://t.co/wk8SS8Ohz7 The endpoint should be health effects of tobacco vs vaping not the use frequency or the daily use of e-cigs vs quit attempts or number of cigs smoked. https://t.co/hWt1mTxCDw

Rats were exposed for only 12 days in a fear extinction model-not a traumatic event in humans. Therapeutic effect was seen in the startle test. We need to be modest about extrapolating this data to long-term use of cannabis in humans. https://t.co/5aZe9SJbH4
