Before coming to Montreal, she practiced for 15 years as a clinician, in Switzerland. There, she co-founded the Agnodice Fondation, an NGO dedicated to the development of health and social trans-affirmative practices. She teaches sexual therapy and provides clinical supervision to trainees in Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and Italy.
