I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science degree with a double major in Psychology and French Linguistics and a minor in Applied Statistics from Grand Valley State University, Michigan, USA in 2017.

Fluent in French, I also completed a Master of Arts in French Studies from New York University in 2019. I also have a C2 DALF (Diplôme approfondi de langue française) level of French.

I obtained my master’s degree in clinical psychology and psychopathology from the University of Bordeaux in 2023. The two-year master’s degree requires a minimum of 500 hours of clinical internship in supervised institutional settings. I completed my clinical trainings in diverse settings:

  • EMPP Bordeaux (Equipe Mobile Psychiatrie Précarité et migrants), a psychiatric service of the Charles Perrens hospital for homeless and undocumented individuals, as well as asylum seeker and refugees

  • La Maison d’Ella, a nonprofit organization of Bordeaux’s CACIS (Centre Accueil Consultation Information Sexualité) offering multidisciplinary support for women victims of domestic, sexual, physical, psychological, and intrafamilial violence

  • Centre d’Examens de Santé (CES) of the Gironde regional health center (CPAM) in Bègles, a preventative service designed to screen for health issues and risk factors, including mental health disorders and referrals for psychological care

I am trained in level 1 and level 2 of Young’s Schema Therapy from the Centre de formation à la psychothérapie integrative (CEFTI) in Bègles.

As a clinical psychologist, I uphold myself to a code of conduct consistent with the psychological ethics code (2021) in France. As such, I participate in ongoing training and education and am supervised on a regular basis.
