Some years ago I heard that “once we feel the sense of foreignness, this makes us foreigners forever.”
Being a curious, international traveler myself, this quotation was like music to my ears.
How did it all start? I have to say I feel a cultural melting pot myself! I was born in Argentina, with Italian roots. I was educated in a German school in Buenos Aires and I obtained my degree in Psychology in an international university. I always wanted to understand how global our world is…so I decided to live in Germany, then I relocated to New Zealand and traveled extensively around other countries. I learned to speak English, German and Italian. And believe me, my list of languages will continue to grow!
I worked in International Human Resources roles, as a member of international teams. My travel and continuous professional and personal interactions with foreigners was very fulfilling, but also quite challenging. This is exactly what motivated me to help those people who are facing the same issues I had to deal with for years.
Where is home to a global nomad? Will I ever feel at home again? How can I communicate and interact more effectively across cultures? Is it possible to re-invent myself and enrich my identity when living abroad?
Do these questions sound familiar to you? If so, then maybe we should speak!
Above all, I enjoy helping people explore new ways of coping with cultural differences and finding a home away from home, starting with the simple but powerful idea of acceptance of our own condition of foreignness.
How do I do this?
As a Cross-Cultural and Expatriate Coach, I deliver one-on-one and group sessions to expatriates, trailing spouses and international professionals who wish to release their true potential in intercultural environments.
As an International Trainer, I deliver Intercultural training programs in organizations based in Latin America and Europe, supporting the successful integration of expat executives and families, international teams and global leaders.
As a licensed Psychologist, I help people cope more effectively with global transitions, making the move a unique opportunity to create the life they want.
