         I was born and raised in the United States by Colombian and Lebanese parents. I have lived in Luxembourg since 2000, and spent the first years entirely dedicated to raising my children. After a break from the professional world, I completed my university studies in psychology to obtain my master's degree from the UK, having obtained my bachelor's degree in psychology in Canada. I have trained at the Beck Institute for Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and received certification in CBT from the Cleveland Center for Cognitive Therapy, both in the U.S.  I am also trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR, a powerful treatment for trauma memories) with the Trauma Institute and Child Trauma Institute's EMDR International Association (EMDRIA) approved training program. I am constantly continuing my education through training programs from a diverse array of institutions in order to round out the skills I can bring to my work.  In my private practice, I work with other therapists and medical doctors to ensure that I am providing the best possible treatment for my clients, and am careful to identify when another professional may be better suited for a client's particular needs.  
        Raised in a multi-cultural family and international school environment, I have always been attuned to the influence of culture on one's expectations and interpretations of the world around us. This is a strength I bring to working with the expat community in Luxembourg, where so many nationalities, cultures, and languages intersect on a daily basis.
        In addition to English, I speak native Spanish, fluent French, and Greek. Working languages: English and Spanish.
