ICF ACC certified

What makes me unique?
  • American in France for 45 years, I work indifferently in French and English and feel very much at ease in dealing with multicultural issues, with a strong awareness of organizational complexity from my experience within and alongside corporations
  • I take great pleasure facilitating active learning: I enjoy helping my clients discover the answers to their issues all by themselves.
  • I love bringing together a wide variety of approaches (NLP, Nonviolent communication, Jungian archetypes, constellations, metaphors, clean language, presencing, storytelling) to stimulate presence and many forms of intelligence (emotional, body, systemic, spiritual, intuitive, imaginative …)
  • My motto: the best way to bring a change to this world is to take care of one self. When you truly dedicate yourself to this, sustainability comes naturally. To do so, I rely on therapy, supervision, constellation workshops, voice workshops, martial arts, yoga  and daily meditation
