I provide Psychotherapy, Life & Clinical Coaching, Divorce Coaching & Mediation, Financial psychology counseling and expatriate counseling for individuals, couples and families; treatment and intervention for those affected by mood disorders (depression and anxiety), trauma, grief, loss and professional & personal transition. I have lived abroad, experienced numerous cultural, personal and professional transtions myself which I draw on in my work. My combined background in business and mental health gives me a unique perspective that allows me to work with individuals who are facing challenges in their personal and professional lives.

I meet clients where they are to determine the most appropriate treatments. I work with clients to set customized therapeutic treatment goals. While I work with all types of indivduals, my "sweet spot" clients are young adult and middle-aged women in the midst of professional and/or personal transition.

My combined background in psychotherapy, business and divorce emdiation allows me to effectively work and treat people with clinical challenges connected to professional and personal transition ones. My experience allows me to "counsel" and "coach". I specialize in financial Psychology & run a group called the Psychology of Spending for Women.
