“How can I possibly move abroad? How can I move away from everything and everyone I know and love? I need help making this decision!” Do you need help “Preplanning”?

“I love this new country and am considering changing my citizenship. Will I lose my identity?” Do you want to explore “Changing Citizenship”?

Why doesn’t “home” feel as comfortable as it used to be?” Do you need help “Reverse Culture Shock”?AMERICAN ENGLISH AND CULTURE LESSONS“I studied English for many years before I came to America. I could speak English very well at home. How come people in America don’t understand me? Why can’t I understand Americans? People talk so fast and their accent is different. How come people talk to each other and use words I never learned in English class?” Do you need help with “American English Reduction Tutoring & American Cultural Adjustment Coaching"?
MARRYING INTO ANOTHER CULTURE AND/OR RELIGION
“We love each other, but is love enough when our religious and cultural differences seem so difficult… and we’re not even married yet?” Do you want to explore “Pre-marital Coaching”?
“I feel I am giving up too much of my identity in this marriage! My spouse doesn’t understand my native language; my spouse rarely is interested in my cultural or spiritual traditions. What do I do?” Do you need help with “Daily Life in a Cross-Cultural Household”?
“Parenting between cultures and faith traditions is overwhelming. How do we balance important aspects of both of our backgrounds in raising our children”? Do you need help “Intercultural and Interfaith Parenting”?
