About

I am an American Clinical Social Worker practicing individual and couples therapy in Geneva, Switzerland with English-speaking adults and adolescents since 2006. I work face-to-face in my office in Geneva and also online with clients living anywhere in the world.

I use person-centered, psychodynamic, CBT/DBT and Hakomi in my approach with individuals and the Gottman Method approach with couples.

My first training with the Gottmans was in 2012 and I have been using the Gottman Method since then with very good results. I am also influenced by the Imago couples therapy concept that we find our life partners based on an unconscious desire to heal our childhood wounds. I see this with most of the couples with whom I work. I am also trained in the Hakomi method and am bringing this body-centered, mindfulness approach to my work with couples as well.
