“In each of us there is another whom we do not know.” - C.G. Jung
I am English mother-tougue but perfectly fluent in French. I was born in a small US town in Southern Iowa, from which the desire to see the world and connect with people from horizons far beyond my own was born. During my junior year at university, which I spent studying at the Sorbonne in Paris, my wanderlust was confirmed. After finishing my first university degree I spent several years living in diverse places such as Chicago, the South of France, Sri Lanka and New York. Since then I have spent the last 25 years based first in Paris, then in Geneva, Switzerland, and I have continued to travel around the world.
Trained as a clinical psychologist at the University of Geneva, where I earned a Masters in Psychology and a Masters of Advanced Studies in Clinical Psychology, then as a Jungian analyst at the CG Jung Institute in Zurich, I continue to nourish my passion for working with people from all parts of the world, and all walks of life. For over a decade I have treated severely traumatized refugees and asylum seekers, as well as UN and NGO personnel at the Consultation for Victims of Torture and War at the Geneva University Hospital. In my private practice I welcome you in a warm, safe and confidential space. In my private time I like to cook, read, travel, practice yoga, meditation, and hiking.
