Seeking “Home” in the World - A Program for Internationals, Expats and Global Nomads

Achieve Clarity Around How to Take Charge of Your Life, Your Work, and Your Wealth to Shape Your Future and Finally Find “Home” in the World

Who Am I?

As an International, I felt lost in a new culture, again and again, as one who doesn’t fit in, isolated from friends and loved ones back in my home country. I wanted to feel accepted and at home.

  • I hid in a corner and waited for permission, for others to initiate, to invite me in.
  • I busied myself doing other people’s bidding.
  • I deferred to the needs and wants of others and pleased others at my own expense.
  • I froze at the slightest whiff of conflict.
  • I blanked out each time someone else chose to ‘define’ me.
  • I was accused of not doing enough, not having a backbone of my own.

To shape the life I wished to live, I knew I had to do something. It took me years to crack out from beneath the frozenness I felt, and then to start identifying what was taking my power and draining my energy.

I was able to interrupt old patterns and change the dynamics of power that held me captive. And I started to gain my freedom and take charge of my own life.

I now work with a wide array of people and have experience as both a psychotherapist and Process oriented Psychotherapist and Expat Coach. Having grown up in the international community of Geneva, I love working with Internationals, Expats, and Global Nomads. I have a unique ability to bring our patterns into sharp focus by virtue of our being in and out of various cultures. I am passionate about uncovering these and witnessing the transformation that occurs.
