About Me

Originally, I am from Switzerland, but I have lived in the US for over 20 years. Therefore, I have been trained and have experience in this evidence-based therapeutic approach. However, I know that emotional pain is individual and unique. Therefore, I walk with the client toward their emotional well-being and contentment so that they can take on their life journey confidently.

Education & Experience

My University training, including my Ph.D., is from the University of Berne/Switzerland. I have about 25 years of experience because I began working as a psychologist in Switzerland and have continued my work since moving to California. In 2021 I completed the basic requirements of EMDR. In 2022, I became a certified EMDRIA therapist. Most recently, I have been an EMDR Consultant in Training.
