My curiosity in relationships between people began at the age of nine, when I, my family, along with thousands of people, were displaced from our homeland due to war.
A feeling of not belonging anywhere pursued me for decades to come. I felt disconnected and lost, focused on external markers of success.
After a disappointing experience of working in a Fortune 200 corporation, I embarked on a journey of self-discovery and soul searching. I felt drawn to works of Carl Rogers, Paulo Coelho, and Carl Jung. I engaged in dozens of transformational courses, such as “Calling In The One” and “Feminine Power” and “Trauma Sensitive Mindfulness”. I also completed a Master’s program in Spiritual Psychology and got certified as a coach.
As of now, my journey isn’t complete and I don’t expect it to be. I enjoy moving into deeper and richer layers within myself, as I experience greater healing, authenticity and belonging in my life. I see myself as a global citizen, rooted in Armenian lineage and influenced by the Soviet history/colonization.
Through speaking, coaching and writing, I help immigrant and refugee to get unstuck, so they can experience authentic lives and realize their fullest potentials.
