On a personal note

You are not a single drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a single drop.
— Rumi

I was born to a Swiss mother and an American father in Northern California in the spring of 1987. Raised in Küsnacht, I later moved to Vancouver, Canada to attend the University of British Columbia. More recently, I have settled back in Zürich for my graduate and post-graduate studies.

I love music, dance and spent many years training as a figure skater.

My bilingual and bicultural background have played a key role in informing my personal development, my approach to life and not least my work as a psychologist.
