I was born and grew up outside of Boston, Massachusetts.
I completed my university studies between Wellesley College in Wellesley, Massachusetts, Sciences Pô Paris, France, l'Institut Commercial de Nancy in Nancy, France and l'Université de Mons in Belgium.
Returning to the US, I moved between Boston and Washington, DC and finally jumped across the pond to spend several years in Surrey, England before landing in northern France where I have been living for close to 10 years.
Before beginning my career as a therapist, I was able to give a voice to my creative side, a side I believe we all have in us, through my work as a professional artist. I continue today to express myself artistically through my paintings and photographs.
Among my specialisations, I work with gifted and highly sensitive children, teens, and adults, and their families. Sessions can take place in either French or English.
I am trained in Transactional Analysis in the field of psychotherapy and family therapy as well as other forms of therapy, most notably energy therapy techniques which I find very complementary to a traditional psychotherapy process.
You can learn more about Transactional Analysis on the EATA (European Association for Transactional Analysis) website here.

What I Do :
As a therapist, I work with various tools to suit my clients and respond to their needs.
Most often I use a mix of psychotherapy and energy therapies and work with a holistic, relational approach.
I welcome clients of all ages from young children to teens, to adults.
I also work with families in my office as well as through in-home visits, in order to facilitate the understanding and communication process between members.
During the school year, I offer workshops for both teens and parents to exchange on various themes as well as informational session and exchanges on understanding the impact of giftedness, a subject near and dear to my heart.
In my office :
I welcome clients by appointment in my office in Wasquehal, outside of Lille, a 3 minute walk from the tram stop 'Cartelot'. It is a welcoming space that I hope will put clients at ease in comfort and security.
In-home visits :
I also do in-home visits in Paris, Bruxelles, and elsewhere.
For psychotherapy and EFT sessions, I welcome clients via Skype which allows those who cannot make it to my office but who wish to undertake one or more sessions with me the opportunity to do so.
