Mental Health Therapist
Hitomi spent the majority of her childhood in Orange County and was raised in a multicultural household. She learned very early, values of compassion and determination that are instilled in her as an adult. Hitomi spent most of her time as a child at the beach or playing volleyball, which led to her desire to be a college athlete. She fulfilled this dream, playing volleyball and earning her Bachelors Degree in Psychology from San Diego Christian College and her Masters of Social Work from California State University San Marcos. Hitomi has worked with children in a variety of roles, such as mentor, sports coach, school social work intern, case manager, and therapist. When not at work, Hitomi enjoys walking her dog, spending time with friends and family, playing volleyball, and creating art pieces.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure… We are all meant to shine, as children do… And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.”
