I have a lifelong passion for exploring, learning, and pushing boundaries and this what motivated me to come from France to the USA. I did my medical studies in France and became an immunologist/allergist. After a few years of private practice, I moved to international clinical research, and finally consultancy in strategic drug development at Baucis Global, LLC. With time I experienced a desire to come back to patients and to dedicate myself to the healing of the psyche. I am guided by the psychology of Jung with its emphasis on wholeness, and not only the development of this or that part of the personality which may be more socially acceptable. I am now in training to become a Jungian analyst at the C.G Institute of San Francisco, CA.
