What Sets ME Apart


I am a seasoned practitioner with the wisdom of over 30 years of experience. I have had exposure to an extremely broad range of human issues. While I have training in many different methods, I take an "integral" approach that uses and knits them all together in a way that fits each unique individual.

My Approach

Whether providing psychotherapy or life coaching, I take a whole-person approach, giving attention and care to body, mind, relationships, environment, and each person’s own sense of spirit or spirituality. This provides a comprehensive way to identify difficulties and challenges, as well as strengths and resources, and to fashion strategies that are synergistic and effective.

My Background and Credentials

I have been providing psychotherapy and life coaching since 1980, working with all ages and every issue imaginable. Nothing surprises me or is too ‘strange’ or difficult. I have worked in psychiatric hospitals, day programs, residential treatment centers, emergency services, and out-patient therapy agencies. I have worked with children and adults, couples, families, and groups. I have worked within organizations, as well as privately.

I earned my Master’s degree in Contemplative Psychotherapy from Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado in 1984 and trained in many different models of therapy since then: psychodynamic, cognitive behavioural, dialectical behavioural therapy, contemplative, brief solution-focused, narrative, strengths-based, systemic family therapy, motivational interviewing, and more. While I am skilled in many different methods, I take an integral or integrative approach that uses and knits them together in a way that fits each unique individual.

In addition, for 5 years I was Executive Director for Windhorse Associates, Inc. in Northampton, MA in the US. http://www.windhorseimh.org/  -Windhorse is a US nonprofit organisation that provides compassionate, home-based, whole-person care for those struggling with major mental health issues.

I relocated to London from the US in May of 2008 to marry a native-born Londoner. In September of the same year I opened my private practice here in London. In addition to my private work I also am a member and work part time as a tutor at the Minster Centre, which has been the leading institution in the UK for training in integrative psychotherapy since 1978. I have taught a “Foundation Course in Theory and Skills”, as well as a course on “Diversity” for second year students. In addition, I have facilitated two different Experiential Training Groups for students and facilitated group supervision for students doing internships

I am also accredited by UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy).
