At various points in our lives, we all face difficult life transitions, workplace challenges and periods of adjustment.

I will guide you through difficult times, helping you turn them into opportunities to grow and become stronger, happier, and emotionally healthier.

I am uniquely qualified to leverage years of "real-world" experience as a corporate executive with years of experience as a therapist to help you achieve your goals. (see FAQs)

The approach I use is collaborative, non-judgemental and individually tailored for maximum personal and professional growth.
