I am an internationally experienced counselor, pastor and coach. I have a Masters in Divinity/Theology as well as multiple certifications in counseling, coaching and supervision. I have over thirty year’s experience working with individuals, couples and groups in Australia, Hong Kong and Germany. In addition to my pastoral and counseling work I have also led two separate non-profit organizations working with refugees, people seeking asylum and survivors of torture.
What I Offer
Currently, I provide individual and couples counseling, as well as coaching. I also facilitate peer support groups for people living with anxiety and/or depression.
- Seeing Couples experience successful, life-giving relationships is one of my greatest passions. Using research-based programs couples are empowered through learning skills and principles such as communication, conflict resolution, assertiveness & active listening, relationship dynamics, and building understanding and connection.
A particular passion and specialty of mine is working with Bi-cultural (cross-cultural/international) couples. I have extensive experience working in cross-cultural settings and with people in bi-cultural relationships. I also, personally, have the lived experience, of being in a bi-cultural relationship.
- I believe, and know from personal experience, that Individual Counseling can be an empowering and transformative experience. Through greater understanding of oneself, family of origin, and formative experiences, a person is empowered in understanding their current situation, and supported in their efforts to cope and move forward.
- I provide Life Coaching for individuals looking to make changes in their lives, change old and develop new habits, and/or achieve personal or career goals.
- I provide Leadership Coaching for people aspiring to, or working in, leadership positions in their chosen profession. I accompany clients in a process of self-understanding, learning leadership principles, tools and models, and identifying effective ways to lead in their specific contexts.
In all of my counseling and coaching I use an interdisciplinary framework, drawing on different theories and methodologies, tailoring my approach to best serve each unique person, couple and/or situation. As a grounding principle, my approach is person centered, strengths based, and solutions focused. In creating a safe and non-judgmental space for sharing and reflection, I encourage a collaborative process where we work together toward achieving desired outcomes.
