I’ve had a range of life experiences which have informed my therapeutic practice. I have lived in many different countries and settled in London in 2012. I spent a decade in lovely East London until moving to the seaside town of Folkestone during lockdown. I was born and raised in Canada to German parents.

I used to work in the luxury hotel and travel sector. I then had a change of heart and worked at various organisations supporting refugees and asylum seekers including the British Red Cross, Refugee Council and Freedom from Torture. I hold an MA in refugee studies and community development and worked as a researcher and advocate in this field.

I am the former Assistant Clinical Services Manager of the Psychological Therapies Team at Mind in Hackney and acted as both a therapist and group facilitator. During my time there I helped develop and run a successful group called Managing Anger and Difficult Emotions. I left Mind in March 2022 to establish my private practice.

Education/Affiliation:  Bachelor of Commerce in Hospitality & Tourism Management (Ryerson University, Toronto – renamed Toronto Metropolitan University as original name was linked to the slave trade), MA Refugee Studies (UEL, London) and Post Graduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Practice (University of Oxford), Postgraduate Diploma in Trauma Therapy (The Grove, London), MBACP (Registered Member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists) 

I adhere to the BACP ethical framework for counselling professionals. I attend regular clinical supervision and personal therapy to support me in my work.
