About

Feeling stuck or experiencing life and relationships as old or frustrating? Life can at times be over-whelming, but it does not need to stay that way. Through a collaborative process, I help my clients to both understand themselves and effectively transform their lives and live more fully. I work with my clients as partners, and my sessions are interactive and productive. While the work can be deep and transformative, the approach is strength-based and pragmatic. We are all unique, and there is no method that fits everybody. Our work together is a joint and respectful discovery tailored to meet your specific goals and needs.
I am trained in multiple therapeutic modalities, and I have broad clinical experience including a psychiatric hospital and Johns Hopkins and Howard Universities. I am a national award-winning researcher on gender-issues, teach doctoral students in clinical psychology, and my work is informed by latest findings in neurosciences and the field of psychology.
I offer a unique blend of two very different backgrounds. Previously, I accumulated over fifteen years of professional corporate experience providing me first-hand experience of the strains of corporate life and transitions on self and relationships. I grew up in Scandinavia, and I work comfortably with people from diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
