Using organizational systems, group relations and psychoanalytic approaches, I work as an organizational consultant, coach and clinician. In each role I have an eye for the dual experiences of being a body and mind that belongs to a larger corporate body struggling to find its mind. This reveals systemic problems, growing pains, and strategic opportunities. These demand energy, movement and voice to dream up the authority for creative organizing and working.
