Welcome to counseling!
As a therapist, I aim first and foremost to create a safe and supportive environment where you’ll feel free to explore what is troubling you and where you’ll feel attentively heard and deeply understood. Taking a collaborative approach, I work with individuals and couples on a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, addiction, relationship and communication problems, feelings of powerlessness, low self-esteem, work-related difficulties and life transitions.
I have a masters in clinical counseling with a supervisory license from Cleveland State University as well as an independent license in drug and alcohol addiction. After many years in the US, I have recently moved back to my native country to be closer to friends and family.
I enjoy using positive psychology, dialectical and cognitive behavioral therapies, which have been shown to be the most effective types of treatments for many psychological problems.
In couples counseling, I have my training from the renowned Gottman Institute in Washington, USA, and enjoy helping couples regain trust, learn better communication, and build happier and more meaningful relationships. You can read more about how I work with couples and the Gottman Method here.
Finally, I have a broad background in the performing arts, with a masters and doctorate in music, and 20 years experience as a professional violinist. As such, I am well versed in the stressors and pressures of professional life and the useful coping skills and strategies necessary to maintain a calm and centered lifestyle.
