Leaders dealing with impacts of challenges from long covid have unique needs

Globally busy and high performance professionals, consultants, entrepreneurs and senior leaders are experiencing personal health challenges during their recovery from covid infection, or taking on additional roles as informal caregivers to their loved ones, such as life partners with long covid, aging parents or kids with serious illness.

Caregiver stress and burnout is due to emotional, physical, financial and career strain of such informal care giving. 

I enabled my clients who work in high profile and performance roles  find relief and build new skills to recognize, accept and find success also in their role as long covid hauler, or being caregivers – while enriching other aspects of work and life.

    My specialties

    Abuse and Trauma from spiritual or self-help groups

    Experiencing exploitation or abuse by religious, spiritual figures, psychedelic facilitators or human potential development groups can result in psychological wounding that impacts existential beliefs, values and views of relationships.

    My trauma-informed approach provides safety and resources to achieve post-traumatic growth by processing the wounds, and reclaiming, reframing, repairing and reorienting toward a meaningful future.

    Relationships Estrangement and Loss

    The strain or even loss of important relationships impacts not only our health, but has detrimental effects on brain ageing, work performance and other relationships. It can deplete you not only emotionally, but physically.

    I help you understand the neurobiology of emotional abandonment, how to deal with intense feelings such as forlorness, relationship attachment including loss, nervous system regulation such as self-regulation and co-regulation, and to gain confidence establishing new social connections and to meaningful activities.


    Integrating Constant and Rapid Changes 

    Integrating rapid transformative events such as impacts from a health crisis, a cascade of life changing events or mystical experiences into everyday life requires a new cognitive anti-fragility.


    I support  you in making sense of and relink to the world during such times when your worldviews are expanded and lead to transformation of personality, of core principles or the way you perceive and understand self, others and reality.

    My Approach & Philosophy

    What you can expect when you work with me

    My own life and work experience informs my philosophy of meeting people where they are, recommending pragmatic interventions, non-judgemental, patience in listening deeply, curiosity and supporting my clients in discovering the hidden gems of the good and bad about themselves and their lives.

    I am known for the art of the conversation and being able to hold a space for difficult and emotional experiences (in person or virtual) and find that visual and creative expression enables non-verbal communication as well as understanding and insights.

    Clients value my honesty and authenticity. I am often asked to formally mediate in complex workplace conflicts and relationships.

    How we work together

    We start with a free, virtual introduction call of 15 minutes, exploring your needs, agree on approach, and our commitment to the process should we think it would be a good fit.

    Typically we will contract for 3 weekly, one hour sessions, starting with a diagnostic, aspirations and goal setting. At the end of the third session, we re-evaluate and determine if you require more support.

    All my clients receive 6 months free access to my nature therapy program.

    You have the option to join my online community for peer support where you will also find additional curated content for your journey.

    My preference for virtual sessions is Doxy, HIPAA compliant telemedicine software.

    My rates

    I offer a regenerative consulting package of three hours for USD $ 300 (for the package as a whole).

    For individual consultations my hourly rate is USD $150.
