Experience & Qualifications
Originally from California, USA, I have been living, travelling and working overseas since 1993.
After many years of working with International Organizations, and many years working on my own recovery, health and mental well-being, I pursued education and trainings to become one of Europe's first Italian-speaking Certified Recovery Coaches and Certified ARISE Interventionist supporting both Italian and English speaking clients.
Because of the potentially long-lasting negative impact of trauma on physical and mental health, ways to address clients’ history of trauma have drawn the attention of health care professionals world-wide. Trauma-informed care acknowledges the need to understand a client's life experiences in order to deliver effective care with the potential to improve clients' engagement, treatment adherence, health outcomes and sustainable wellness. Utilizing evidenced-based practices clients develop skills to build self-esteem, resilience and self-reliance.
Families and loved ones are encouraged to participate in up-to-date and current psycho-education, compassionate communication and wellness exercises to help support their loved one's journey and enhance the entire family's happiness and joy.
Highly motivated, resourceful, committed and compassionate, I work with a clients all over the world and online.
