My journey to innerprocess
I was born in 1974 and raised in Switzerland. At age 19, I followed a call and left my country to live and study in the USA. I ended up staying in New York for 11 years. I graduated first from a theater conservatory, and then moved onto attain my bachelor’s degree in psychology with a minor in creative arts therapy. After my bachelor’s degree, I was drawn deeper into the subjects of creativity, science and human development. At the same time, I began to study astrology as a means of exploring and understanding our potential and characteristics from a universal perspective.
The inventive process of art therapy — the connection of ‘creative thinking’ and ‘doing’ in relation to psychology — led to my sustained belief in it as an effective tool. It allows the human psyche to strive for the greatest fulfillment of itself and contribution to the world.
I then studied for my Masters in Creative Arts Therapy. During that time, I began to engage more and more with research into consciousness studies, spiritual concepts and transpersonal therapy. I started my training in these areas and began to meditate and work with dreams and deep imagery processing myself, thereby investigating different techniques and levels of perceptions and consciousness.
Later, I trained as Vision Quest and Soulcraft Guide at Animas Valley Institute in Colorado. There, I began to integrate my concept of the soul with classical psychology, and relate it to our ecosystem and nature. I also started to incorporate this understanding into my therapeutic work with clients and students.
I’ve been back living and working in Switzerland since 2004. As an actively working psychological counselor and creative arts therapist, group facilitator, and supervisor, I now bring over 20 years of experience. My work involves interpreting and engaging with a diverse range of clients in both private practice and inpatient psychotherapy units, as well as counseling, teaching, and guiding adults and young adults through various learning stages, circumstances, and life transitions. Between 2004 and 2015, I worked in various psychotherapy inpatient treatment units within psychiatry while simultaneously managing my private practice. Since 2015, I have been fully self-employed. Additionally, I serve as an instructor at therapy training institutes, also providing supervision and conducting training therapy sessions.
In 2019 I went back to university and completed a Master of Science in Consciousness and Transpersonal Psychology, enjoying recognition from the British Psychological Society upon graduating. I also received a Eurotas certification in Transpersonal Psychotherapy ECTP.
My expertise is in: coping with life-transitions, crisis intervention, personal potential development, consciousness and self-awareness training and transforming thought and emotion. Through innerprocess I work with a natural blend of psychodynamic process work combined with creative and spiritual practices. This includes shadow work, dream psychology, creative arts therapy, Deep Imagery Therapy, Transpersonal Psychology and nature-based process work.
My true passion and commitment to personal development work enables me to support and inspire people on their individual life-journeys. My training and life experience allow me to bring a understanding, depth and warmth to my clients and students.
