Who am I?
I am a clinical psychologist holding a degree from the University of Paris V, having then gone on to complete my initial training by obtaining a university degree in transcultural psychiatry from the University of Paris XIII.
For 15 years, I worked in humanitarian fields for major international organizations such as Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), the Center for Victims of Torture (CVT), or Handicap International (HI). I was stationed with emergency aid programs in countries facing conflict or post-conflict situations in Asia, Africa, South America, and the Middle East. I am very familiar with the reality of humanitarian work done in tense contexts as well as the living conditions that come with it. As program manager, I advocated and then went on to introduce essential staff support policies. In the past few years, I have specifically developed my activity in support of humanitarian workers, offering tailor-made intervention that aims to prevent suffering caused by their profession and to support staff in the field.
Clinical and psychotherapeutic consultations are at the heart of my practice and professional experience. I specifically listen to and support individuals faced with a situation of disequilibrium, radical change or breakdown (personal and/or professional), whether related to a difficult stage in their lives, change of culture, exile, or a direct/indirect encounter with violence. In the latter case, I draw on my long experience of caring for people suffering from complex traumas (victims of war and/or intentional violence).
Languages and regions
I conduct my consultations in French, English and Spanish, and am also familiar with the Arabic spoken in the Middle East although I do not offer long-term support in this language.
I practiced for a long time in the field and face to face. Currently, I provide mainly long-distance psychological support and psychotherapy and divide my time between France and the Middle East.
