About Therese De Liz
My interest in supporting expatriates developed over the span of 30 years, living as an international expatriate myself. These experiences have shaped my open-minded, tolerant and nonjudgmental manner. I have always been passionate about understanding how others feel and humbled to share their journey to happiness.
My life and career started with my family's move to Paris, France. Later my family moved to Germany, where I worked as a English-German interpreter and English tutor. Somewhere in those years I ventured to England to study English literature. My great chance came after the fall of the Berlin Wall, where I moved to live and study in Jena, in former East Germany. After completing my master’s degree in psychology, I continued school to train to be a psychotherapist, clocking more than 3,000 patient therapy hours over the course of several years. I gained experience working in a leading university hospital as a psychologist in the cardiac unit, dental clinic and women's clinic. Later I taught psychosomatics and intervention to pre-med students. In my former private practice in Munich, Germany, I enjoyed working with international students, expatriates and their families, as well as with Germans in their native language.
I offer life coaching and psychotherapy with all the convenience of the Internet. Sessions are carried out via secure video stream, are confidential and our interaction highly personal and custom fit to your situation.
I am licensed in Florida and in the entire European Union.
