At the heart of my work is my belief in the potential of the past to impact the present. My therapeutic foundation is humanistic, which means that I feel strongly that enduring positive effects of therapy are possible for everyone. I work with older adolescents and adults of all ages.
I offer a safe, non-judgmental, confidential space in which you can talk openly about anything at all that might be weighing on you. In this space, I will support you as you develop a deeper understanding of your current concerns, your relationships, past and present, and your self.
As an American living in the UK and a woman of mixed race, I understand how a sense of ‘otherness’ can influence how we interpret the world in which we all live. As a former English teacher, I pay close attention to the language we all use to tell our stories.
Over time, our shared process will enable us both to become more aware of your motives and your behaviours, which will enable you to develop deep and empowering insights into your choices and your relationships with others.
In addition to my Masters and Education Specialist degrees in Counselling, I have a Masters in Literature, all of which I earned in the United States.
I work both face to face and online with the following concerns:
- Relational problems and family dynamics
- Anxiety and depression
- Alcoholism and addiction
- Self-destructive behaviours and inner conflict
- Relationships and life transitions
- Matters of identity and one’s true self
Like all BTC practitioners, I commit at least 25% of my time to the provision of low-cost and no-cost therapy to disadvantaged members of our community. Because I am an employee of the organisation, any surplus generated from my full-cost work is ploughed back into our charitable services.
