I am French and American, originally trained in the hospitality industry and most of my professional experience has been in project management in said hospitality industry, in universities and in social entrepreneurship. I discovered Positive Psychology in 2013 and later Gestalt-therapy. Their humanist origins and roots have motivated me to resume my studies to accompany individuals and organizations today to be a practitioner in Positive Psychology, and since December 2020 practitioner in Gestalt therapy. I am still on my journey to be a Gestalt therapist.
