About Me

Professional Background

After graduating as an engineer and receiving an MBA I started my career in the Telecommunication and  Information Technology Industries where I worked in different business roles across Europe in multinational organizations such as Digital Equipment Corporation ( now part of Hewlett Packard Corporation) and Oracle Corporation.

After working over 15 years in business, I went back to school, earned a Master of Arts (MA) degree in Counseling and started my private practice (under the name Mental Fitness) in 2006 to provide individual and couple counselling, coaching and mentoring services.

I was trained and use a range of therapeutic approaches with an emphasis on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Existential Psychotherapy and Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy, Mindfulness Therapy and a Cognitive Behavioural approach to Coaching.

I hold a “Droit de Pratique” in the canton of Geneva which allows me to practice and to be reimbursed by certain insurances.

The last 15 years of private practice have been very interesting and rewarding and have given me the opportunity to work with a wide range of issues and a very multi-cultural client base. I also had the opportunity to present in different forums such as World Radio Switzerland (WRS) on topics such as self-esteem, women’s mental health, work-life balance, depression or relationship issues.
