Relationships are Complicated.
I’m here to help you navigate them successfully.
People all over the world are longing for a better way.
You are part of that.
You know it’s time to step into your inner authority and to act from your most authentic, aware and empowered self.
I am here to help you connect the dots, find the missing links, heal the hurts, and deeply understand yourself and others so you can move forward with clarity, empowerment and love.
As a teacher, writer, consultant, and therapist, I offer healing, personal transformation, training and leadership development to the seekers, leaders, go-givers and change agents of our times; to people who are deeply interested in improving their relationships at home, at work and in the world at large. To people who want to make the world a better place.
In case we’ve just met, here’s a bit about me…
I grew up living in the spaces between cultures, on the edges, holding opposites.
Born during Apartheid to white South African parents , my father worked as a diplomat upholding governmental policies while my mother actively protested them.
We lived in Malawi, Germany and Beverly Hills, returning to South Africa annually to visit family.
I was trained in etiquette, good manners, compliance and being a “good girl,” at the same time that I was encouraged to question the status quo, change the system and fight for universal human rights.
But, I quickly learned that rules for “right and wrong” behavior depended on whose perspective you took and which culture you inhabited.
I focused on fitting into other people’s needs, beliefs, cultural norms and rules and soon found that belonging everywhere also meant belonging nowhere.
Disconnected from my feelings, needs and inner knowings, I was increasingly out of touch with the very things that I needed for my own strength and clarity.
I’ve been searching for what is at the essence of being human for as long as I can remember.
My longing for connection, belonging, safety and understanding lead me to dive into teachings and wisdom from multiple psychological, philosophical and spiritual texts.
Over the years, the collective knowledge drawn from multiple cultures has illuminated my path, opened my heart, reconnected me to myself and others and given me a deep sense of purpose and meaning.
My unique background as a global citizen with a Master’s Degree in Education and a Doctoral Degree in Clinical Psychology make me uniquely able to help you bridge the gaps internally - between your heart, head, gut and soul - and externally - between your deep intentions and what actually comes across to the people in your life.
I deeply believe the integrated wisdom of our hearts, minds and souls will change the world.
Many of our biggest breakthroughs come not from learning something new, but by remembering what we’ve forgotten. I’d be honored to help you reconnect to your inner authority and wisdom so that you can make a meaningful difference in the world.
