Additional information

I am an American, living in Milan, Italy since 2008.

I provide counseling in an outpatient setting (currently only online, due to restrictions imposed by the coronavirus outbreak), working primarily with ex-pats, helping them develop more effective communication and coping strategies, to better manage interpersonal challenges and embrace the changes in their lives.

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.
