Profile | About me


I was born in Zurich and then we moved to the lake of Constance. Before studying Psychology at the University of Zurich, I had completed a commercial apprenticeship and attended the interpreting school in Zurich. I worked for two years abroad in Santa Clara in the Silicon Valley in California, then as a language teacher and translator in Murcia Spain and in Geneva. I returned to Zurich to study psychology in the clinical psychoanalytical direction with the minor subjects in psychopathology for adults and neurophysiology, where I then worked for two semesters as a tutor / assistant.
