ABOUT ME
              and my dog

 

I was born on a day at the end of August '66 in a town called Martina

which is in the border triangle of Switzerland, Austria, and Italy.

My parents have made it easy to pick a name for me!

 

I was raised as a hotel child, surrounded by staff members from many

different European countries and customers from all over the world.

The atmosphere in which I was raised has formed my natural talent

of understanding and communicating with people.

From being a hotel child, I have a natural sense for service, innovation and efficiency.

I am a goal-oriented counselor, who creates solution to motivate people to take counseling and to help my clients achieve their goals.

For over ten years I had my own event production company and for several years I was co-owning and managing the production for an international action sports publishing company with employees from 11 different countries. In my life I have been studying, fair-trading, working on humanitarian projects, or traveling for sports events in the countries of Canada, USA, Mexico, Guatemala, Cuba, Ecuador, Argentina, Switzerland, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Austria, Sweden, Thailand, China, Japan and New Zealand.

At fourty, I've changed my career to become an Adlerian counselor. Alfred Adler’s psychology is often referred to as Positive Psychology.
 

My husband, his son, and daughter are from Senegal, and my son is half Cuban. We're a family from 3 continents, speaking to each other in Raeto-Romansh, Wolof, German, French, and Spanish. Our kids are between 12 and 15 years old.

I love the international atmosphere at home, in my community, and at work. Although I'm proudly an “Engiadinaisa”, and strongly rooted in The Engadine Valley, I am first and foremost a world-citizen.

This is Aramis, my therapy dog.

Being half Visla, half Labrador he is a gentle, sensitive, and peaceful companion during the sessions.
