Japan-based Cross Cultural Trainer & Transition Coach
Areas of Expertise
Transition Coaching • Emotional Health • Mental Health • Nutrition • Mindfulness
I help professionals and families live, work and thrive in Japan. My areas of expertise include cross-cultural education, orientation programs, and wellness coaching to help you cut through culture shock, have a smooth transition, and live the fulfilling experience you envisioned before moving.
I'll help you ease into living in Japan as comfortably as you'd ease into a hot spring.
Japan is an intriguing culture to experience living in - but it also carries significant challenges for new residents like you who are looking to make it your home.
I'll help connect you to resources and organizations that will add to your life here, provide training on lifestyle and business culture topics, and support you whenever you are experiencing feelings of culture shock.
The challenges that people face in Japan are predictable...and preventable! Feel free to connect with me to help you avoid common pitfalls and thrive.
