After several years of living with constant uncertainty in the world, I am here to remind you that you are not alone.


With over 17+ years of experience in social support and counselling, it is my aim to help people find more clarity in their lives, become more self-aware, and take ownership of their work and life with more empowerment and resilience. I offer English speaking counselling in France, I work with individuals and groups facing a wide variety of life challenges. If French is your native tongue, please know that my French is fairly limited, but if you speak slowly, I believe that we can find a way. I

As a dual national expat, it has been my experience that living in different countries has taught me of the difficulties we face, and of the inner strength we learn in order to adapt to foreign cultures, languages and society. 

Having been in France throughout the duration of the global pandemic, I would like the opportunity to provide services to help people through the unique set of challenges that life has thrown at us with the pandemic and the more recent situations abroad. We are all a part of this collective trauma in France and around the world.

I provide counselling/ coaching online to anyone experiencing isolation, loneliness, struggling to integrate into a new country, low self-esteem, stress, anxiety, career direction, amongst other areas. I work to create a safe and caring environment, creating goals, enhancing self-confidence and self-awareness one on one; as well as building meaningful relationships in a group setting.

I work remotely, 100% compliant with sanitary barriers.
