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.
