Eden Prairie Office
Dr. Tsuchiya sees persons aged 6-99+, couples, and families. She is a White mother, raising three biracial/bicultural children (White and Japanese American). She is a highly personable, highly curious, warm, and “real” therapist and supervisor. She believes that all people are trying their best and hopes to help others continue building more compassion for themselves. Dr. Tsuchiya adapts her therapeutic style to meet client needs, but often includes humor, metaphor, drawings, writing, occasional psychological testing, and education into her sessions as appropriate. Her time within a biracial/bicultural family has made her more attuned to the incredible importance and ongoing effort of cultural responsiveness and humility. In her free time, she is a Trekkie, loves all things related to space, loves to read, doing puzzles, building things, loves crafting, doing work outdoors, watching movies, and being with her family.
