Graduating with a MA in mental health counseling (counseling psychology) in the USA in 2001, - completing both undergraduate and graduate studies in the States as an international student - upon arrival I began working in the education field in various positions. In the last ten years I have fulfilled a variety of posts in the corporate and adult-education field as mental health counselor, corporate advisor and as a research and development specialist.

By 2011 my academic career has embraced another area, the field of social psychology as I have completed my PhD studies (abs.) at University of Pécs.

With a background in psychology coupled with the understanding of 'workplace' where most graduates are bound to end up, I feel it is important to spend some time with assessments. So we aquire a realistic outlook on the self and life as well. I enjoy going along with clients on their journey to find resources and skills so they are able to excel and overcome their own challenges. To tackle such broader advisory tasks early on, I adapted a counseling-mentoring mentality for solution-seeking and resource mapping.

and let go of why-s for a little while!"
