Licensed Professional Counselor
Welcome to my page. I know that finding the right help can be a daunting task, so let me share a little about myself with you, and the therapy and coaching that I offer.
Psychotherapy and Counseling
Therapy can be beneficial for dealing with the challenges of life; both the ongoing and the sudden. You may be feeling lost, overwhelmed, or dissatisfied; maybe you have stubborn patterns, or you want to get to know yourself a little more.
Working in a supportive and non-judgmental environment can equip you to engage with your struggle, and find a strategy to help you get to where you want to be. Everyone has their own story and way of seeing the world, so I will work with you where you are at, using various approaches from CBT, Mindfulness, Existentialism and traditional psychotherapeutic methods.
Sometimes, we will laugh or cry; some sessions will feel supportive, and others, frank and challenging. I encourage you to bring your whole self to the sessions, ask whatever you want, and risk going to uncomfortable places. As Joseph Campbell writes, “the cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.”
I offer a space for individuals to explore issues such as anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, relationships, identity, loneliness and meaning.
Executive and Leadership Coaching
I also offer executive and leadership coaching. Coaching is a reflective, supportive and challenging space for individuals to explore growth areas. It can help you to identify and overcome the blockages that often hinder leadership, performance, progression, and authenticity.
These sessions focus on career goals and difficulties. I use psychometric testing to build awareness of your strengths and weaknesses; developing a pathway toward progress in your career and leadership.
Areas of focus include resilience, leadership development, progression, productivity, work relationships and transition.
I hold a Master’s in Psychotherapy, a Diploma in Executive Coaching and Leadership Development, and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology.
Born and raised in Dublin, I have provided therapy, coaching, and wellness workshops for individuals and organizations across the US, Europe, and Asia for the last eight years. I have worked with companies such as Facebook, Google, Youtube, Airbnb, Tomra, Rabobank, and public sector organizations.
I am an avid reader, especially regarding the science of wellbeing. I love nature and being outdoors; I’ve done research in this area, and am happy to work with clients outside when appropriate. When I’m not in the office, you will regularly find me hiking, camping, or swimming.
I look forward to meeting you. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the scheduling team or myself and I’d be happy to help.
Leadership, Professional and Life Coaching
“Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.” — Carl Jung
From organizational pressures and dynamics to busyness and general demands of life, we can find ourselves tired, burned out, and not where we want to be. We all have an idea of what we want life to look like, and sometimes need help figuring out how to get there. Whether you’re struggling with professional challenges like progression, performance, and leadership, or personal ones like wellness, stress, and balance, coaching can help you bridge the gap.
I provide a space that avoids corporate jargon and pressure. I’ll help you connect with yourself and your team while shaping the life you want, both professionally and personally. I offer leadership, professional, and life coaching
I can help with:
- Leadership Development
- Organizational Culture
- Professional Development
- Work-Life Balance
- Stress Management and Resilience
- Workplace relationships and feedback
- Navigating change, transition, and uncertainty
- Emotional Intelligence (self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skills)
- Productivity and Performance
- Health and Wellness
- Future Direction
Leadership Development (for Current Leaders and Leaders in Waiting)
To lead effectively, a leader needs to understand their team. To understand their teams, leaders must first understand themselves. To better understand themselves, leaders need to develop two key areas: Authenticity and Emotional intelligence:
Authenticity helps leaders balance the expectations and culture of an organization with the characteristics and values leaders want to establish with a team. Put simply, it is showing up as they wish to be and merging that with how the team needs them to be. To do this, they need to develop Emotional Intelligence (EI).
Emotional Intelligence (EI) comprises of four parts:
- Self-awareness – Awareness of strengths, weaknesses, trigger points, and reactions.
- Self-regulation – Learning how to calm the nervous system, manage stress, and develop courage.
- Motivations – Finding your drive, resilience, creativity, and readiness to achieve your goals.
- Empathy – Connecting with the team, recognizing their humanity, strengths, and weaknesses, and developing the social skills to meet them “as a human.”
Through coaching, you can identify the needs of your team, your organization, and yourself while developing your authentic approach to meeting those needs.
Professional coaching helps you develop the career you want and the skills you need to get there. We identify your strengths and areas for growth, external barriers (qualifications, experience, culture), and internal barriers (confidence, productivity, anxiety).
Many of the components of leadership development can be applied to professional coaching too, as many hiring managers and HR professionals value Emotional intelligence over IQ and technical skills
Life coaching focuses on personal goals such as relationships, hobbies, health, and retirement. It is a space where we can focus on developing authenticity and finding more meaning in life. A large component of life coaching is creating balance, which will help identify and improve the areas of your life where you may be experiencing frustration and disillusionment.
I have a strong dislike for the corporate jargon or hyperbole that is connected with coaching. With this in mind, my approach is simple: I help people rediscover their life and career goals by asking questions, sharing my reflections, and offering objectivity.
Together we will identify:
Your Starting Point → Where are you now and how did you get here?
Your Destination → Where do you want to be?
Your Motivation → Why do you want to get there?
We will develop a plan to get you there and highlight any potential obstacles both internally and externally that may be in the way.
I use psychometrics like the Emotional Capital Report 360° to gather more data on areas that are beneficial for you to develop. I am warm, nonjudgmental, curious, and sometimes direct. Most of all, I’m in this to help you get where you want to go. I like to know how things work, so I will often share the science behind my approach, especially regarding topics like self-awareness, stress, productivity, and performance.
