Ryuji Yoneyama has been a Licensed Marriage and Family therapist for the last 8 years in both Texas and California. Ryuji offers treatments such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-focused, and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. He mostly serves populations who are adults 18-65, Asian Immigrants, and 1st and 2nd generation immigrant relationships through individual therapy. He mostly works with adults experiencing depression, anxiety and/or life transitions.

Ryuji got his Bachelors of Arts in Psychology from Cal State Northridge. He then went on to receive his Masters in Counseling with a concentration in Marriage and Family Therapy from Cal State Northridge. He is also a ADHD-Certified Clinical Services Provider.

Ryuji's interest in human behavior and each individual's differing perceptions of the world paired with his inspiration to help others that was built through his enjoyment of watching hero shows is what brought him to pursue this career. He is passionate about helping people work through challenges where they have the “ah ha!” moment and life’s hardships are a little easier for them to manage.

Message to clients

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.
