Hi, I'm Misty

(She/Her)

and I would love to help

As a mixed-race woman (Japanese-American), recovering perfectionist, and new mom, I know how overwhelming life can be. I also know what living at the intersection of different worlds feels like.  I get energized when I work with other mixed-race women who want to feel more secure in themselves and want to feel empowered.

Why I do this work

 

Growing up, I felt an internal low-level anxiety and desire to belong that I couldn't name. Whenever discussions of race came up, I would feel a strange wave of imposture syndrome.  

This baseline anxiety and self-doubt contributed to finding validation in hard work and people-pleasing tendencies. As time passed, the feelings of insecurity never quite went away.  After much personal work, I uncovered that the secret to feeling belonging in the world was having a secure relationship with myself.

 

Now I can confidently own all parts of me. I state my needs, own my wants, and determine what "good enough" is for me. That is the change I hope to encourage for my clients.

If any of this resonates with you, I'd love to chat.

I'm here to help you

I'm a Starbucks addict and foodie. I check out the newest bakeries and cafes whenever I can.

 

My favorite way to decompress is baking.
