Before immigrating to the USA, I earned a Master degree in Economics from the Catholic University of Louvain in Belgium. Previous work experiences include teaching and being the director of a center for children with learning disabilities in Brussels.
My second career started with a Psy.D. degree from the Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology, Yeshiva University, New York. I worked as a psychologist and supervisor at the Karen Horney Clinic in New York, in the adult and trauma units, in particular as part of the 9/11 trauma program, while being in private practice in Manhattan .
I am a graduate from the New York University Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis. I have a certificate of the Advanced Program in Family and Couple Psychotherapy of the NYU Postdoctoral Program and I am a consultant at the Couple Therapy Training and Education Program at the William Alanson White Institute, NY. I am trained in Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy and other approaches in couple therapy, including Discernment Counseling.
I provide supervision and I am an adjunct faculty supervising graduate psychology students at Lenox Hill Hospital, NY.
My international experience and research in couples led me to working with intercultural and international people in English and French.
