Education, Professional Training and Clinical Experience

Suomi is a native speaker of Japanese and fluent in English.  She majored in marketing and consumer behavior during her undergraduate education at Keio University in Japan. 


After working as a human resource coordinator both in Japan and abroad, she returned to school, this time in the United States.  She received a Master of Science in Social Work from the University of Southern California, with a concentration in Counseling for Families and Children.


While pursuing her master’s degree, Suomi successfully completed an internship program at an outpatient mental health clinic, where she was subsequently offered a staff position.  The cultural and ethnic diversity of  the inner city of Los Angeles, where the clinic was located, gave her an opportunity to acquire solid cross-cultural clinical skills. 


Working at a mental health clinic gave her an opportunity to develop strong skills in clinical assessment of mental health disorders as well as developmental disorders.  She worked with adult clients with various mental health issues such as depression, anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, eating disorder, addiction and personality disorder.  She also worked with child clients with ADHD and other behaviour problems. 


After moving back to Japan, Suomi was licensed as a Clinical Developmental Psychologist, while working for families with children in the public sector.  Since her move to Hong Kong in 2012, she has been working as a bilingual counselor and providing culturally-sensitive parenting classes to cultural minorities in Hong Kong, such as Japanese families and Nepali families, respecting their cultural backgrounds and meeting their unique needs.

Suomi is passionate about improving her clinical skills and expanding her knowledge of the ever-evolving science of healing.  Currently, she is working on the Intermediate Level of a three-year Somatic Experiencing professional training, which she believes is a highly effective modality for resolving trauma.
