The passion for what connects people and makes them unique has always fascinated and motivated me. After completing Master degrees in clinical psychology and medical anthropology, I have continued to develop as a therapist, researcher and trainer in culture and communication.
I have clinically worked with expats, parents, refugees and families, supporting them with anxiety, depression, stress, sleep problems, relationship conflicts or adjustment difficulties. In my work with a wide variety of people and their problems, I always try to tailor the best of different therapeutic approaches to the specific possibilities and needs of each individual.
After qualifying as a trainer in transcultural and systemic therapy in Amsterdam, I specialised in cultural psychiatry at University College London, focusing on intercultural training and expat adaptation.
Since 2016, I have been exploring the applications and benefits of Dignity Therapy in Switzerland in collaboration with USZ and City Hospital Waid. Until the end of 2018, I have been supporting people in the last stage of cancer; and between 2019 and 2022 people with early stage dementia, and their family. I coordinated Dignity Therapy study projects, train therapists, provide Dignity Therapies and offer Dignity Therapy courses in Switzerland.
