I work with people from the most diverse fields of activity: arts, academia, business etc; people whose active and creative lives were suddenly interrupted by depression, anger, anxiety, mourning or trauma.
The psychotherapy that I practice is a process of carefully observed and promoted expression; thoughts and feelings, dreams and desires, fears and anxieties - all get a voice: loud and clear, without criticism. By finding the courage to make a change, you can have the surprise to experience the freedom of being, living, breathing, feeling, opening your eyes to your true being.
I practice cognitive-behavioral therapy, the modern version of psychoanalysis, whose traditions in theory and healing have lasted for over a century.
"You do what you can with what you know and when you know better, you do better."
My calling in life is simple: helping people to be the masters of their own lives!
Listening intensely to the worries, helps in discovering the inner conflicts. Chronic stress and anxiety can be the cause of depression and unhappiness. In finding the cause of the symptoms, we reduce the frequency of panic attacks and irational fears.
All people have one thing in common: we all have been children. Recalling what have helped us and have injured us in our own childhood, it gives us the freedom to behave in the most appropriate way with our children as well as with ourselves.
The therapy is a significant and important decision. I think that it is the most important choice a person can take. And in this regard the therapist must be experienced, empathetic and generous. I feel like I am the sum of all these attributes and I engage myself with responsibility in every therapy with each client. Our work together is a partnership, where we analyze what does NOT help in moving forward, what blocks the person in a paralyzing stupefaction.
Life itself can be traumatic and the pain is inevitable.
A crisis is an opportunity. The opportunity to change yourself, to become a real person - YOU.
But you do not have to go through all of these without psychological support because you would feel disoriented and lost in your thoughts, most of the time.
Ask for help!
The human ties go a long way until they can accept a helping hand. The support and the challenge to go further without forgetting the hope on the way, but also the understanding of the own fears, all have a laborious approach to psychotherapy aimed at reinstating the psychic and the soul comfort and controlling the distorted cognitions.
The therapy helps in creating the meaning of one's own life, the soul introspection, the personal development and the reconciliation with one's Self. This may be for short or for long, depending on the needs of each person.
The warmth, the trust and the communication with clients, but also paying special attention to personal problems, all are helping me to create a solid bridge of therapeutic collaboration.
"The open minds do not want to be right but to understand. There is no right or wrong answer. It's all about understanding."
