During a long career in public service, as a Child Protective Services Social Worker, then later, as a Marriage and Family Therapist, I have found tremendous joy in helping people transform their lives.
I believe that with a commitment to and a deepened awareness of ourselves, we can grow our compassion and reconnect in a profoundly beautiful way.
I help people refine the art of relationship and relating to their loved ones. I have seen and heard many tragic and challenging stories of rocky relationships and families struggling with death, divorce or disaster and I find that all people mostly want is peace, ease, and contentment in their lives. I started my business because I can use my skill and training to help individuals, couples and families relate better, repair their relationships, and reconnect with each other.
Despite any degree or license I have or whatever amount of love I have for my family, I respect the courage it takes to grow. I have a deep appreciation of the vulnerability it takes to heal, as well as the energy it takes to stay connected to myself and others.
My understanding of life, loss, and the effect of trauma on families is shaped by my personal experience as well as my career. I grew up in a very challenged South Africa, and then later lived in the United Kingdom, France, Italy and United States.
I envision a world where peace and ease in relationships are the order of the day; where relationships are considered opportunities to grow oneself and contribute to the well-being of our partner and families.
I feel extraordinary privilege working with my clients, helping them find a way back to connecting with themselves and each other. I have a deep desire to raise my own awareness of how I am in the world— to “walk my talk.” I am truly honored when someone wishes to share their process with me.
When I am not at work, I spend time with people I love, hiking the hills in the area and traveling around the US and the world. I love cooking and am an avid reader.
