Ryuji Yoneyama, LMFT (TX & CA), ADHD-CCSP

I find human behavior and each individual’s differing perceptions of the world interesting. I also grew up watching hero shoes and like which inspired me to help others where I can. These interests eventually molded together during college where I was drawn to psychology/counseling. What really keeps me going is when I am able to work through challenges with a client where they have the “ah ha!” moment and life’s hardships are a little easier for them to manage.

I work mostly with adults experiencing depression, anxiety and/or life transitions. I have worked with both children and adults on the autism spectrum as we explore emotional regulation during life’s challenging moments. I am a LMFT (licensed marriage & family therapist) in both Texas and California.

Favorite Book

The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom

Hobbies

Playing video games or board games with friends, walking, hiking, cooking, martial arts. Sometimes random things my mind would fixate on that gives me joy and motivation.

Funny Story

This is a story about how I got my name. My name in Japanese means “one who governs dragons.” My dad wanted to name me something related to the year of the dragon since I was going to be born during the year of the dragon. But my dad didn’t realize the year of the dragon had passed 2 years prior. Apparently he didn’t realize for a while but both my parents liked the name so much that they stuck with my current name.
