I specialize in Adult ADHD, Burnout, Anxiety, Depression, and Life Transitions. I have been practising for over 30 years and offer services for individuals, couples, and families both face-to-face and online. I also offer Coaching for Work-related issues, Parenting, and Goal setting.
I offer sessions in English, French, and Spanish.
I believe in an individualized approach which includes an integration of a variety of therapies. There is not just one way of approaching everyone. I place emphasis on client strengths, and issues are viewed as life's challenges that call for new and innovative solutions. Fostering an empathic trustworthy relationship is paramount as well as maintaining full confidentiality. We work in partnership and I see my role as a facilitator of that growth.
My practice is conveniently located in Maida Vale, next to St John's Wood and Marylebone and a stone's throw from Central London.
I comfortably offer Skype or Facetime sessions recognizing that the world has changed. People move, change jobs, have limited time, increased expectations to perform, and look for the option of continuity once our relationship involves trust and engagement.
I offer a choice of long-term or time limited work depending on their need. A client may elect to do a piece of work, and return later to work on another issue. Once we have an established and positive working relationship, my door remains open to additional services.
Before our initial consultation, I will have a brief intake telephone conversation with you at which time we discuss your main reason for contacting me, availability, as well as fees and insurance information.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am an accredited registered member of The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and abide by its code of ethics. I am also fully licensed in the USA and the Netherlands. My formal training was acquired in the USA, I lived for 11 years in the Netherlands, and now have a private practice in London.
I believe that for me to offer the highest quality service to my clients, it is important to attend conferences on a regular basis. As an experienced therapist, I am in constant contact with new developments in the USA and Europe through international conferences and associations. I share the latest developments with clients when appropriate or useful and recommend guided reading.

If this is your first experience seeking therapy or coaching it can feel difficult to take the first step. It is important for you to feel comfortable, understood, and heard. I aim to offer a supportive space for this reason. The benefits of counseling and coaching are limitless when therapist and client work together. Viewing an issue from multiple sides and recognizing the impasses and options are essential to being able to move forward.
