I focus on the therapeutic relationship which is found to be the most important element of success in treatment. Once established, this relationship supports the patient's adoption of the skills needed to resolve their issues. It also is the basis for a solutions based approach where specific steps toward recovery can be implemented by the patient.

I was born and raised in England where my mother worked as a medical doctor and therapist. So after spending some years in the world of business and finance I followed her footsteps. I have found it a privilege and a pleasure to work with the very diverse patients that I have treated.
My interests include: exercise, bicycling, swimming and hiking. I like spending time with friends. As I was born in England, I still enjoy some British shows on TV.
The tin drum - Gunther Grass. It is a strange mix of psychology and history that describes very fully the feeling of being an outsider.
The Childrens Psychological Health Center which I used to run and has done great work for children challenged by autism or trauma together with providing support for their parents
