My Approach to Coaching & My Current Work
If you want to reach new heights in your career, achieve your weight loss goals, improve your relationships, or develop a positive overall attitude and approach to life, my programs and techniques will give you the skills, insight, and motivation you need. Through my expertise in counseling and coaching, you will learn to stop listening to your negative thoughts and to start building a new approach and new habits that will empower you to achieve your best life. I can provide you with strategies to handle stress, enhance your communication skills, gain personal insights, discover and enhance your unique qualities and potential, and challenge unhealthy relationship and thinking patterns. In essence, I will help you to create long-lasting positive change. With formal training in several theoretical orientations, I integrate different approaches for the benefit of each client. I have successfully counseled and coached many people who are getting more out of life than they ever did before. My goal is to enable you to live your best life now.
For more than 10 years, I have counseled families, couples, and individuals struggling with various personal issues, such as difficult relationships, anger, and behavioral problems, or with disorders, such as addiction, depression, anxiety, trauma, and phobias. I have worked and trained at several prominent treatment centers and universities including The Hanley Center, Palm Beach, Florida; The University of London, UK; The Drug and Alcohol Foundation, UK; A New Day, UK; and Kensington and Chelsea College, UK. Before I began my clinical work as a therapist, I had my own company offering cross-cultural training and support to families relocating overseas. My clients included McKinsey, Fidelity, British Telecom, Cable and Wireless, and Barclays Bank.
I obtained a three-year postgraduate degree in psychoanalysis and psychotherapy from the School of Psychotherapy at Regents College in London, UK, in addition to a Master’s degree in counseling psychology from Palm Beach Atlantic University. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree at Georgetown University and a Master of Business Administration from The American Graduate School for International Management. I also earned a Master of Arts degree from the University of London. I am a licensed mental health counselor (License MH 10473), a Certified Addictions Professional (CAP 5011), a Florida Supreme Court-Certified Family Mediator, an American Psychotherapy Association Board-Certified Professional Counselor, and a member of The British Association for Counseling & Psychotherapy. I completed Eye Movement and Desensitization and Reprocessing Training approved by EMDRIA and Certified Life Coach Training from The Zur Institute and The Life Coach School.
