Some Life Experience... 

Beside my formal training and studies, I was and I still am "trained by life" - by the constant change of the inner and outer world, my moving between languages and cultures, crossroads, losses, break-downs and break-throughs, new beginnings, motherhood.

The arts (photography in particular), literature, cooking, writing, movement and occasional trips to the nature, guided my inspiration.

I experienced humanity and the healing potential in human connection, the freedom to choose the "road not (yet) taken" in life; therefore, I deeply believe in my work as well as in my commitment as a therapist and human being.
