She worked over 30 years as supervisor in the most different projects and institutions (difficult adolescents, immigrants, drug addicts, woman projects, handicapped people) and 7 years in the biggest male prison of Switzerland. She built her own little house in a forgotten mountain valley, which allowed valuable learning about the deeper levels of the Swiss psyche.
