Hi. My name is Tori Kitagawa. I am a mom of two teenagers. I LOVE my dogs Mimi and Coco and a cat who acts like a dog- Bella. I live in Los Angeles. Coffee and cheesecake are the two of my favorite things. I was born and raised in Japan.
I had two dreams since I was like 5 years old.
1. Becomes a hair stylist -Check. Pretty much my entire family
( Grandma, mom, dad, brothers, uncles, aunts and cousins ) are hair stylists. So I wanted to be one too. I love making people beautiful. It makes me so happy that my clients feel good about themselves.
2. Move to America- Check. I don’t know why. But I just wanted to.
Now I live half of my life ( Yes I am assuming I live till100),
As every woman know when they go to their hairstylists, they tell me a lot about their problems and stories. And there are 3 categories that if I have to simplify.
1. Hair and beauty – it’s obvious.
2. Weight and health everyone has some kind of complaint or problem.
Including questions like who does the best boob job or neck lift.
3. Relationship. With husband, wife, kids, friends, family co-workers…
Long story short, I got divorced with my kids’ dad, I decided to take a life coaching training, I started coaching myself, it was a life-changing event for me. There is nothing I can’t figure out. I am in control, but I can’t control other people’s behaviors, weather and many other things that I wish I could.
I thought if I could help myself, what was like to help other women? We deserve to be happy. And it is not that hard as you think. If I can do it, you can do it too. I really think life is too short to be sad and unhealthy.
We can start to enjoy our life now.
