Michio Guss, AMFT

Mitchell “Michio” Guss was born in Japan and raised for most of his life in the US. Being biracial and bicultural, he struggled trying to understand who he was and how he fit into a community. He felt it was like a blessing and a curse to freely be able to move between two very different worlds, yet not fully belong in either one. This has made him somewhat of a “third culture kid,” which for him means he’s adopted specific values and traditions as is fit for his life. His unique background has taught him to cherish culture and difference, yet not be bound by them. It’s as though he has an intimate insider’s experience and an objective outsider’s perspective at the same time. This stance informs all of the therapy that he does.
