American psychotherapist specializing in womens issues, including those affecting college students. Success in dealing with sexuality, relationships, eating disorders, career, and cultural adaptation. Free your emotions and live a fulfilled life
Bilingual American psychotherapist, living in France since 1989. I have success in dealing with sexuality, relationships, eating disorders, career, and cultural adaptation. I can help you to free your emotions and live a fulfilled life.
Sexuality and Relationships
- One common emotion that underlies problems with sexuality and relationships is shame: shame about a lack of sexual pleasure or the inability to form intimate connections.
- In the approach I have developed, called HonestEmotions, we go to the source of the shame and liberate what’s been holding it in place. A mind-body approach to free up unexpressed emotions and create clarity, relief, and a new start.
- A prevalent emotion that drives eating disorders is self-hatred: “Why can’t I just stop eating—what’s wrong with me that I gorge myself and then have to starve?”
- Free yourself of the deep frustration and despair and learn to welcome self-love. It then becomes possible to have a balanced, relaxed relationship with your food.
- The fear of pursuing the right career path comes with negative beliefs about yourself. Example: “I don’t have what it takes.”
- I provide a safe space in which you learn to be present to your fear and let go of the negative beliefs holding it in place. There you will find the courage to take the steps toward a satisfying professional life.
Students Studying Abroad
- “This was supposed to be such a great time!” Loneliness and disappointment are emotions that some students feel when coming to France to study.
- By embracing their honest emotional response, students learn to transform disillusionment into the joy of being here. I empower students to work with the cultural and academic triggers to discover unforeseen opportunities for growth.
