Therapy

My approach is always based upon the client’s needs. It is a solution-focused approach which seeks to support you to reach your goals and address the thoughts, emotions and behaviors that can prevent attainment of your goals. Many clients can reach their goals using short term therapy.

I serve a diverse community of people using a variety of theoretical approaches. For families and couples I approach the issues from a systemic perspective recognizing that therapy is often most effective when it changes the way people relate and interact. I view clients within a humanistic framework which suggests that there is an innate capacity for growth and development in all individuals which can be released and nurtured within therapy. The goal in all cases is to enable the client to apply what is discovered in therapy to their lives and relationships.

My background and qualifications

I was born and raised in London, England and after receiving my undergraduate degree began my professional career in the world of business and finance in Europe where I gained a Masters Degree in Business Administration (MBA) from INSEAD business school in France. My work brought me to America where I lived in New York and subsequently moved to the San Francisco Bay Area.

I have, for many years served as Chairperson of a non-profit agency, The Children’s Psychological Health Center (‘CPHC’) which serves young children with mental health challenges. This work motivated me to go back to school at the Wright Institute in Berkeley California and obtain my Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology. I have subsequently qualified as a Marriage and Family Therapist (License LMFT 84287). I continued my studies at Alliant International University where I have successfully completed a doctoral program to become a Doctor of Psychology in Marital and Family Therapy.  My doctoral thesis was based on my research into the factors which support enduring relationships and the ways in which therapy can not only resolve the couple’s immediate issues, but also support their capacity to create long term relational success.

I am a frequent speaker at conferences and have written several articles on a variety of subjects related to psychology. Additionally I have worked as a Professor of Psychology at Alliant International University in San Francisco.
