I became a therapist after working for many years in business and finance. I was fortunate to then complete a master's and subsequently a doctoral program in Psychology. This professional and academic experience supports the therapy I've been providing for over a decade. By connecting academic theories with my clients' real-life situations and an empathic and thoughtful style, I seek to help clients understand themselves better while supporting their movement forward in positive directions.
In addition to working as a therapist, I have written about long-term success for couples and workplace stress and have led therapy groups on these topics as well as anxiety and depression. I specialize in these areas working with couples and individuals.

I was born and raised in England where my mother worked as a medical doctor and therapist. So after spending some years in the world of business and finance I followed her footsteps. I have found it a privilege and a pleasure to work with the very diverse patients that I have treated.
My interests include: exercise, bicycling, swimming and hiking. I like spending time with friends. As I was born in England, I still enjoy some British shows on TV.
The tin drum - Gunther Grass. It is a strange mix of psychology and history that describes very fully the feeling of being an outsider.
