I am now conducting all sessions online or by phone. Please contact me for more info.
I have a Master’s degree in Holistic Counseling and a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies in Expressive Arts Therapy from Salve Regina University in Newport, RI in the United States. I am certified in Choice Theory and Reality Therapy with the international William Glasser Institute and have additional training in Solution Focused Brief Therapy from the Brief Therapy Centre in London, UK. I am also currently a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to all their codes and practices.
I have been in private practice for 19 years, as well as teaching at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University in the Doctoring Program. As a home and school-based mental health clinician for the North American Family Institute (NAFI) and East Bay Community Action Program (EBCAP) I counseled children, teens and adults with emotional and behavioral issues. I was formerly the Program Coordinator for FRIENDS WAY, Rhode Island's only family bereavement center. I moved to the UK in 2021 but I am available for all former, present and future clients, no matter their location, via online and/or phone sessions.
I have particular expertise with grief and loss and am skilled at working with individuals in all the creative & performing arts. I tailor my approach to meet each client's individual needs, working in collaboration to find positive solutions.
I was previously a consultant and creative development executive in theatre, film and television in the United Kingdom; and in arts and education as the administrator of nine British literary awards. In the United States I worked in publishing as an editorial and public relations director and also as a freelance creative/media consultant.
