Welcome! 

 

I am an American psychologist, originally from California and now living in Switzerland.

I hold a U.S. license to practice independently as a clinical psychologist.

I offer individual therapy and psychological coaching on Tuesdays and Thursdays at my private practice in downtown Lausanne. I also offer workshops for the public and trainings for mental health professionals.

 

As a half-time consultant for the World Health Organization in Geneva, I actively contribute to scientific knowledge by developing novel treatments and conducting scientific research on psychological interventions.

My treatment approach is cognitive behavioral, with an emphasis on
mindfulness- and acceptance-based cognitive behavioral therapies (CBT), including acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT).
