Professional statement

Yumiko Take is an Integrative Psychotherapist based in Brooklyn, New York. Her practice focuses on supporting individuals grappling with stress, anxiety, depression, grief, loss, complex trauma, relationship challenges, creative blocks, ADHD, and navigating life transitions.

Employing a blend of psychodynamic principles and trauma-informed techniques, Yumiko fosters a mind-body connection in her therapeutic work. Trained in EMDR, AEDP, Sensorimotor therapy, Breath-work, and Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP), she tailors her approach to suit each client’s unique needs.

Yumiko’s therapeutic process delves deeply into unconscious patterns and behaviors, fostering profound insight to establish a more flexible and integrated personality. Clients undergo a transformative journey, understanding themselves more, becoming more loyal to their authentic selves, and feeling empowered.

Her practice emphasizes understanding intersecting identities and diverse backgrounds, integrating socio-economic and cultural contexts, and recognizing systemic influences in her work. As a multiracial therapist, Yumiko brings a nuanced understanding of the complexities within individual identities. Her approach is rooted in acknowledging the impact of various social and cultural forces on personal well-being.


Message to clients

Many individuals seek me out when they've reached the limits of traditional talk therapy and desire alternative tools or approaches. Particularly when dealing with trauma and difficult past experiences, this involves delving deeper into repressed emotions and memories that continue to affect and shape our lives. It may necessitate revisiting challenging memories, which is why I incorporate EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).

I find myself particularly invigorated when working with individuals who are deeply curious about self-development and harbor a love for personal growth. I’m a growth junkie myself. My approach stems from an unending curiosity about the human experience. I've devoted my life to understanding the diverse facets of the human condition, realizing that healing takes having multiple perspectives. I embrace Eastern and Western philosophies, including Buddhism and Psychoanalysis, Jungian psychology, and Psychedelic Integration, the Enneagram, and the Mind-Body connection. My diverse interests provide varied healing perspectives that I offer to my clients.

My therapeutic style is warm, direct, and highly attuned. I prioritize creating a safe, non-judgmental space for you to open up and be honest. I aim to be a mirror and guide, and nurture unwavering loyalty to your authentic self.
