Counseling for Internationals ...

For those who live away from their home country, as business people, spouses, retirees, students, teachers, or travelers, we face challenges unique to our lifestyle. We adapt to new cultures, engage cross-cultural relationships and manage being away from friends and family for extended periods.  

As a licensed professional counselor from the US, also living abroad, I am very familiar with the issues of our international community.  I am based in Chiang Mai, Thailand.  However, due to my work, I often travel.  I am available for consultation via internet wherever you may be.

“Personal truth is not singular; it is a cyclical and continuous process that relies on a relationship with the unknown for clarity and growth…”

To begin...

Please send me an email. I will get back in touch with you within 24 hours. We can then make arrangements for an introductory session. If we both feel that our work together will be of value for you, then we can continue having formal counseling sessions.   

Every person is unique. My counseling style does vary according to personality type and issues. One size does not fit all. Generally speaking, the goal of counseling is to find a deeper order of balance that promotes empowerment, creativity, independence and meaning. 

Recovery from addiction, loss, divorce, or addressing symptoms of depression or anxiety (that are not due to physiology), or other significant life events, can all be understood within the context of transitioning from one stage of life into another.  

During these transitions, it is important to find someone to work with who can bring objectivity, compassion and support to listen deeply to you and to help guide you through these challenges.

Counseling is a journey. Having psychological symptoms or pain does not define who you are, these are only indications of what and where  life is out of balance. When you find the source of the imbalance solutions become possible.

$130 per hour

Robert Johnson and the Sleeping Gypsy

During my time with Robert Johnson, he would often invite guests to his desert house in the Anza/Borrego desert in California, and a framed copy of The Sleeping Gypsy was hanging in the hallway outside the kitchen doorway.
