About me

Hello and thanks for stopping by...As a therapist working in my community for nearly 2 decades I offer a seasoned and warm approach to the work we do together. I commit to long term and short term relationships with clients struggling with all sorts of issues from childhood trauma to anxiety. I work with clients to focus on managing difficult feelings, anxiety and panic, processing loss and working toward a peaceful mind.

My framework is Transactional Analysis, and I work in a relational style. Simply put we can explore the impact of early and current relationships on your sense of self and wellbeing. The interaction between therapist and client begins to highlight, clarify, and heal the pattern of relational problems.

Although the focus of my practice has broadened over the years, eating disorders and childhood trauma are my special interests. I treat a broad spectrum of eating problems.

  • I also help with people who have relationship problems, live with anxiety, chronic illness and pain, grief and loss. I also work with complex issues, such as dissociative disorders and abuse.


What to expect?

A session lasts 50 minutes, once a week. Sometimes it is useful to have two sessions a week in times of crisis, or going deeper into complex and difficult work. Our contract can be long term and opened ended or short term.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

I work with all sorts of difference, and am open to yours.

Training, qualifications & experience

I attended the University of Texas at San Marcos in 1991 and studied Sociology and Anthropology.

In 2000 I achieved a  Level 5 Post Graduate Diploma in counselling, and then went on achieve a Master Practitioners Diploma at the National Centre for Eating Disorders.

Currently, I am writing my dissertation in Transactional Analysis for an MSc given by the Metanoia Institute.
