It has been my life's work to understand what it is to be a human being. The first way I did this was through literature, as an educator. I relished in epic stories of characters' journeys to their destiny, to redemption, and ultimately, to themselves; I loved to teach (and therefore learn) about these meaningful stories with my high school students. Indeed, part of me will always be a teacher, just as part of me will always be a student. After several years of teaching in the U.S. — which is where I am from — I started a career teaching in International Schools. I spent several years at the Taipei American School in Taiwan, and then I moved here to the Zurich International School. At the age of 41, I felt a deep call to travel to the depths of my own being, to truly explore what it is not just to be a human, but to be this human. This ushered in a new phase of my life, and with it a new career as a Jungian Analyst.
How I work
Life is a journey. As such, it can sometimes be very challenging, taking us to dark or difficult places. These are times when a guide can be helpful to bringing us back to who we are and where we ultimately want to be in our lives . Engaging in therapy is an opportunity to connect to our most authentic self, to the part of us that creates, that knows, that heals. Exploring how self-limiting beliefs and patterns may have kept us from realizing and expressing the truth of who we are in the world opens the door to a more meaningful life journey. Together, we engage in soulful conversation and reflection.
