I believe in the development of the human being and in its capacity for growth and transformation. 


My training as counselor allows me to perform the rewarding work of supporting people, couples and families. By applying techniques and interventions I help to activate their own resources in order to overcome difficulties as well as achieve a better balance and more satisfaction in their lives. 


My previous graduation in social communications and more than ten years of experience in different companies allow me to assist professionals in dealing with work-related conflicts and to support their professional reorientation.


Living in Switzerland since 2005, I am married to a Swiss and mother of two children. I consider it a privilege to be able to use my personal experience as a migrant and member of a binational family to complement my professional knowledge when working with people in similar situations.
