We are so excited to welcome Kayo Mettier to the Therapy In Session team! 

 

メティア佳代、セラピー・イン・セッションチームへようこそ

 

Kayo joins us after serving as a bereavement counselor at Hospice of the North Coast. She has also provided services at High Tech High School as a therapist with the IEP (Individualized Education Program), supporting children and their families with challenges in school related to mental health and different learning abilities.

 

メティア佳代はホスピス・オブ・ノースコーストでグリーフカウンセラーとして従事した後に、私たちのチームに参加することになりました。彼女はまたハイ・テク・ハイスクールにてIEPプログラムのセラピストとして、メンタルヘルスや学習能力に関する様々な課題を持つ生徒たちとその家族たちを支援してきました。

 

Kayo grew up in Kawaguchi City, Saitama, Japan, near Tokyo. Throughout her childhood, Kayo's family frequently hosted international exchange students in their home from all over the world. Her father was born at the end of World War II, which influenced his passion and desire for world peace. Kayo's upbringing fostered a joy for connecting with people from all cultures and a curiosity about each person's life.
