My Services

  • Counselling

    Guidance is offered in marital difficulties, school problems, decisions and other life challenges.

  • Therapy

    I accompany those who come as they seek to work on their inner conflicts and heal their soul wounds.

  • Dream Work

    Rather than interpreting them, I work with the dreamer to uncover the message(s) dreams bring.


Brief Biography

Born in the US in 1940, I grew up in Oklahoma, in the central part of the country. My first university degrees were in physics and my first employment was in metrology. My area of expertise was optics: how to work with light.

At age 31, I discovered I was more interested in working with people and, in 1973, came to Switzerland to begin my training at the C. G. Jung Institute. I was married in 1975 and have a son and two daughters (two of whom now have their own children).

In 1981 I moved to Bern after completing my training in psychotherapy and began seeing clients. I now have over 38 years of helping people get to know themselves better and to work on and through their issues and problems.
