A native of Geneva, I studied psychology at the University of Geneva and got my undergraduate degree there. I completed my education with a Post Graduate Specialization in Clinical Psychosociology at the University of Lausanne. During this time I was introduced to the systemic approach in consultation with couples and families. The Systemic field, such as family issues and relationships remained a great source of interest, including sibling relationships.
After a few years as a psychologist an the institutional and associative setting, I trained as a psychotherapist analyst for children, adolescents and adults at the CG Jung Institute in Zurich, where I graduated. I have worked as a psychologist at home in Switzerland as well as abroad with a variety of people, such as with children with developmental disabilities, young school drop-outs, and women undergoing domestic abuse.
