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. As a certified Jungian analyst and a clinical psychologist, I am guided by the psychology of Jung with its emphasis on wholeness, and not only on the development of this or that part of the personality which may be more socially acceptable.
