Mie completed intensive DBT training through Behavioral Tech: A Linehan Institute Training Company. Mie was born and raised in a small town in Niigata, Japan, but has been in and out of Japan for study and work since the age of 15. Her psychological practice is informed by her former career with an international NGO in Asia, West Africa and Latin America.

She understands the dynamics that international moving adds to the psychological state of individuals and families.
