Cross-Cultural: Born in Chile South America to foreign European-German parents, I grew up as part of an international community, attending a British school and later graduating from a California high school . Since 1980 I have been living, working and studying in Germany. Although my home and family is in Germany , I have continued to live and travel abroad, not only in Europe but also in Australia , Canada, and the USA. I have working experience abroad, international friendships, and we keep living in a cross-cultural relationship because we have a second home in Florida . Growing up internationally and living with a highly mobile and cross-cultural lifestyle has been a remarkable experience in my life that allows me to understand people living in foreign cultures.
I have been working in Internal Medicine and Psychiatry in Germany since 1980. I have experience in clinical and private settings, working with individuals, groups, couples, and staff teams from a diverse range of ages, cultural, and religious backgrounds. I have an interest in all aspects of creativity. I regularly participate in continuing professional training in a wide variety of subjects relevant to Psychotherapy in Europe and abroad. In Germany, I have completed intensive training in order to practice as a mental health professional and I continue training courses to widen my scope of understanding with consideration to how it/they may serve patients better.
