I am an American, living in Milan, Italy since 2008.
I am a Certified Professional Counselor, working with ex-pats (individuals, couples and young adults), helping them develop more effective communication and coping strategies, to better manage interpersonal challenges and embrace the changes in their lives.
I am a member of the American Counseling Association and AssoCounseling, in Italy.
I understand that life as an ex-pat can be challenging and that anxiety, self doubt and overwhelm can make you feel like you are struggling to get by. I’ve learned that facing new parenthood far from home requires education, perspective and support. I know that inter-cultural relationships have their own brand of hurdles and that parenthood for cross-cultural families can sometimes leave both parents feeling adrift.
If you can relate and are having trouble coping, remember – YOU ARE NOT ALONE
Having been an ex-pat myself for many years in various countries, I understand that the stresses and changes of living abroad can sometimes make you feel like you’re no longer yourself and no longer in control of your life.
With a B.A. in Psychology from the United States, more than 10 years in the corporate world of attorney recruiting, a Masters in Counseling in Milan and, most importantly, countless hard-earned lessons from years of inter-cultural life abroad, I’ve developed a deep understanding of life as an ex-pat. I know the trials – and joys – of living in a foreign country and I enjoy working with clients from all over the world to help them reach their personal objectives for improved emotional health.
