As a licensed psychotherapist, I have been providing business consultation, coaching, and management guidance to creative businesses and entrepreneurs for nearly a decade. Working through a creative and psychoanalytic lens, I specialize in bringing joy to corporate culture, encouraging increased creativity and ingenuity, smoothly managing rapid growth, and compassionate communication and customer service. 

Businesses are groups. And by nature, groups are a hot mess. As a business, you likely operate within multiple groups. From departments and executives, to the critical supportive staff that keep your business environment clean and ready for work, it is the communication of these multiple groups all at once, that represent your corporate culture. 

The groups within your business, whether large or small, believe in YOU. They are leaving their primary group - family, partner, pets, to join your group and work on YOUR dream. They deserve JOY. And the JOY begins with YOU. 

The health and strength of any business starts at the top. Joy, along with dysfunction flow from leadership to all groups within the business. Dysfunction can manifest at any level and is influenced by the degree of joy and compassionate communication among the decision makers. 

Integrating regarded analytic group theory (Bion and Hinshelwood), along with modern approaches (Kotler and Csikszentmilhalyi), we work together to analyze your business as a living, breathing system from top to bottom. Application of these theories, combined with a tailor made strategy will shift your business and teams toward a place of increased joy, creativity, communication, and growth. 

I work with clients and teams in many different ways. It is essential that each approach be specific to the needs and goals of the client. For that reason, I offer services ranging from in and out of office retreats, ongoing coaching and consultation, retainer, as well as 6 month to year long residencies.
