About me

I offer counselling and coaching through all sorts of life circumstances and stages such as loss, grief, adjustment to life as a new parent or with physical health difficulties. Engaging with counselling can help with mental health challenges such as depression and anxiety. Individual, family, and couples' counselling offered in person and via live video chat.

Training, qualifications & experience

Master's Degree (for UK readers, with a 1st) in Counselling from Texas State University in San Marcos, TX USA. Additional advanced training in counselling for trauma, grief, and emergency/disaster support, community health practices, and career development coaching.

Bachelor's Degree in Religion and Education from Duke University in Durham, NC USA.

My career has spanned many roles in health care, from staff therapist in public and private agencies to business management and senior leader in large health care corporations. I have lived in several countries and cultures, and integrate this experience into my counselling practice.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Specialty areas also include parenting issues, dynamics of separation and divorce, educational and career coaching.
