About me

I'm a trained and licensed psychotherapist. I also provide coaching sessions with individually tailored approaches, especially for students and yound adults. Although I was born and raised in Paris, I very often had the occasion to deal with expats and I have a good understanding of their everyday struggles. I like conversations in English, German and Italian. I experienced the challenge of being an expat myself. My previous study and professional background enabled me to build up a broad understanding of all kinds of professional & life situations. This enriches the guidance I provide. I have studied Philosophy, German Studies, Management and Political sciences before undertaking my training in Psychoanalytical psychotherapy. I also worked in the field of corporate communications and project management prior to being a therapist. I can help you cope with a variety of problems and questions which can be a burden every day. This is not a fatality. Together we can find new ways for you to live your life with more serenity and well-being.

My approach

I believe that impressive results can be reached when we can have together what I like to call "therapeutical conversations". I have been trained in Psychoanalytical psychotherapy but my approach is psychodynamic and very interactive. I also may use tools like role games and perspectives from the systemic therapy.
