Medicine & Humanities Linguistic Validation and Translations

Healing words




Art of Diversity was born from my passion for the medical sciences and humanities studies (mostly medical research, integrative medicine, health humanities, anthropology, philosophy, psychology, spirituality, literature and art).


I am a professional linguist and healthcare provider (I hold a bachelor’s degree in physiotherapy and in English philology and literature, a master’s degree in specialized translation and other university degrees in osteopathy and neurological physiotherapy). I have been working in medical translation and healthcare for over 20 years and specialize in linguistic validation (LV). I have worked in the field of LV for over 10 years for CROs (MAPI, ICON, etc.) and LSPs specialized in medical translation (Novalins, TransPerfect, etc.).


I see LV from “the other standpoint” as well because, besides being a healthcare provider (I have had my own private practice dedicated to osteopathy and integrative physiotherapy until 2020), I am also a multiple sclerosis and chronic fatigue syndrome patient and I love LV because it has helped greatly in giving me a voice and in recognizing how I feel, function and live. Due to my health status I decided to close my private practice and focus on my healing. This situation led me to reinvent myself in many ways and to focus more keenly on LV and create other ways to continue being of value for supporting health and well-being to patients.


For these reasons, it is one of my deepest desires to continue with this beautiful work in any way possible, and I highly appreciate and want to thank you for your interest in my services.


Besides translating, teaching and being of value to patients, I love writing poetry, novels and self-help books, working in Healing Words (my new integrative health and well-being conversation coaching space dedicated to integrative medicine and arts), walking in nature, practicing meditation and spending time with my family.


It is a great pleasure for me to be here with you, and I wish that I may be able to transmit to you the knowledge I have and provide you with my expertiese and experience with clarity, and in a way that may be most satisfying to you.


Thank you!

Healing words  - Integrative Health Coaching

I have worked as an integrative healthcare practitioner (osteopath, integrative physical therapist, energy medicine healer, and health facilitator) for more than 20 years. I love inspiring health and accompanying people through their healing process, supporting and helping them find solutions for their conditions and attain a state of well-being and self-empowerment.

Through a process of Inspired Health & Well-being Conversation, and the intertwining of integrative medicine and healing arts (such as the use of art therapy, energy medicine, psychoneuroimmunoendocrinology, meditation, stress-free practices, diet optimization, exercise, etc.) I provide integrative health coaching services by means of on-line private therapy and facilitation sessions for those interested in healing and well-being from a body-mind-spirit holistic perspective.


At Art of Diversity I am always joyfully working to improve and grow in order to offer people my best self.
