About

Individual counselling is helpful when you are in a state of chronic or intense unhappiness, discomfort, stress or anxiety, fear, fatigue, anger, hopelessness, etc...and you no longer want to be in that state. Individual therapy may be the first step toward positive change in your life. Couples decide to work with me when the following issues arise in their relationship: Emotional and/or physical infidelity; Communication breakdowns; Inability to resolve conflicts without fighting; Unmet emotional needs; Gradual loss of intimacy, affection, or sex; Mood disturbances (depression, anxiety); High stress levels, etc...
My treatment methodology is integrative combining psychodynamic, CBT, Rogerian and Hakomi with my personality style to create a unique psycho-social-somatic therapy practice. My holistic approach deals with the health of a person's body, mind and spirit together as one integrated whole. I treat the person-in-environment, attending to all relevant systems.
I am an American expat living in Geneva since 2003. I'm the fifth child in a family of six from Illinois. My parents are both deceased. I have two adult children in the US and two grandchildren. I also have two step-daughters in Europe. I was divorced in 1990 and am now remarried since 2006 to an Italian woman from Geneva.
