“My passion is to help families to get the best out of the overseas experience starting in the dreaming phase, when their are just considering a move, through the adaptation to the nomadic life and the repatriation. As a clinical psychologist I choose to look at this specific lifestyle as an opportunity for growth  with a built in challenge of major identity change for all family members involved. Based on my professional background and my personal experience I am trying to share the lessons learned mainly with parts of the expat community that are less likely to read, and express themselves in the growing expat communities in real life and online. This are the non English expat families. This families are going throw the same challenges as any expat with the extra challenge of a language barrier. The ones that are overcoming that barrier are welcomed into a wonderful world of knowledge and experience. My hope is to be a bridge for any non English expat that wish to be part of this diverse community, and wish to be understood.”
