Maki Obana, PhD, Psychologist in Chandler
I believe that people have the innate power to positively change the course of their lives with a supportive environment. When you are in a challenging situation, you naturally feel ambivalence about change since it requires letting go of the familiar for something unknown. If you're looking for extra support and guidance to get through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you.
I believe the key to success counseling is a positive relationship between you and me. Therefore, I work hard to provide a warm and supportive environment in counseling. Therapy is a journey of self-discovery and growth.
As your therapist, I can help you gain important insights about the path you have been on and explore the paths you may like to take. I work with diverse individual adults and couples with a broad range of problems in either English or Japanese
