Tokyo and Yokohama are two separate metropolises separated by a relatively thin stretch of surburbia making access between the two cities extremely convenient. While many more Westerners work or reside in Tokyo, there is still a significant English-speaking population in Yokohama who has counseling and mental health needs that are usually served by English speaking therapists located in Tokyo. Dr. Berger and his associates at the Meguro Counseling Center provide counseling and psychological care conveniently located from the Yokohama area. Feel free to call Dr. Berger if you or a loved one has a need for help.
Sometimes an illness like severe depression or anxiety may require medication in order to allow talk therapy to jump-start. Dr. Berger has considerable experience in using psychiatric medications and keeps up to date with the many medications used in Western countries that are not yet available in Japan. Dr. Berger can provide you with information and recommendations regarding psychiatric medication if necessary, and Dr. Berger can arrange for you to have an on-line or phone meeting with a physician he works with in Tokyo if you live far from the office. This physician can then post you a prescription for medications that Dr. Berger recommends, and you can use this prescription at a pharmacy in your area, and you can use the Japanese health insurance for the physician and drug costs.
