Hi, I am Akiko Marui. I am a counseling specialist at Sam Nabil Counseling Services.
Fun fact about me: On top of my counseling career, I am a professor of Japanese at Xavier university in Cincinnati.
I was born and raised in Japan and lived/studied/worked in multiple locations in the USA and Japan. I have a diverse knowledge of different worlds and cultures and I speak English and Japanese fluently. I enjoy working with diversity. It is invigorating for me to work with clients from different ages, backgrounds, and cultures who have different traditions, belief systems, and life styles.
As a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) in Kentucky, I have helped many children, teens, and adults in overcoming a wide range of challenges in their relationships, work, or study. I typically work with both individuals and couples.
The foundation of my approach is strength-based. I see people defined by their capacity for growth and positive change. I intend to take you on a journey to discover yourself, and identify your inherent strengths and resiliency. I am passionate about assisting you in achieving your goals through an adventure of self-discovery, goal setting, and success. My ultimate goal is to walk with you as you bring about the positive changes you craved and create the meaningful and purposeful life you deserve.
I am looking forward to working with you
