About Concetta

I am an Italian-American living, loving, learning, playing & working on the Expat Planet in France, with my French husband and 1 cat in the countryside just outside of Bordeaux.

I am a self-proclaimed ‘Groupologist’ as I have over 40 years of experience studying, facilitating & puzzling over people in groups.

My formal education includes a M.S. in Contemplative Psychotherapy from Naropa University and a multitude of workshops & trainings in group dynamics, management & facilitation.

I worked in Human Resources in large, medium & small organizations for over 25 years. Then after receiving my Masters I worked in a Non-Profit Counseling Center as both a Therapist and Program Director for 8 years.

I am also a Reiki master, Sum Faht Meditation teacher & a self-trained Jin Shin Jyutsu & EFT (Tapping) practitioner. I continue my education in the University of Life, currently volunteering with a Franco-American Association, leading a Creativity Art Process Group and making collage Art.
