When relevant, I also integrate family tree analysis, or transgenerational therapy.
Are you struggling with repetitive pattern, or symptoms, emotional, affective or psychological issues ? Rather than taking medication and treating the issue on the surface, would you prefer to better understand why this is happening to you, and why it happens ? With more than 23 year of private practice of psychotherapy, I can help you to cope with your situation and, most of the time, turn it into a positive experience. My work focuses on qualitative change, and for that we'll analyze things under the surface.

I'm the fifth child in a family of six from Illinois.
Individual counselling is helpful when you are in a state of chronic or intense unhappiness, discomfort, stress or anxiety, fear, fatigue, anger, hopelessness, etc...and you no longer want to be in that state. Individual therapy may be the first step toward positive change in your life. Couples decide to work with me when the following issues arise in their relationship: Emotional and/or physical infidelity; Communication breakdowns; Inability to resolve conflicts without fighting; Unmet emotional needs; Gradual loss of intimacy, affection, or sex; Mood disturbances (depression, anxiety); High stress levels, etc...

In addition, I am a trained Couples and Family therapist .
I am a Clinical Psychologist with over 10 years of experience treating individuals, couples, and families. I work through a Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) framework. I view each of my clients as unique and thus their needs and presenting problems as unique. Therefore, I do not believe that one method or technique works for everyone. I strongly believe in collaboration, and transparency with my clients. I firmly believe that each clients is the best expert in their own lives and I see myself as an agent who can assist them in reaching the goals that they set for themselves.

The protective power of arts in health and mental health has been with us for millennia and today is evidence based. Daily life's emotional demands often go unnoticed and coping with anger, fear and sadness is socially accepted to happen in silence. Nourishing and protecting our mental health can get easily neglected. Although family and friends can play a wonderful supportive role in times of need they may not be enough in times of crisis. Making the choice to look after our mental health is our first step to personal growth. Making art is creative and fun. Being part of a supportive and safe group is therapeutic.

I work with adults in Geneva and surrounding areas who are looking for an English-speaking therapist. Are you are struggling with a change in your life or with unsettling emotions that are difficult to make sense of? Perhaps you are in the middle of a life transition or perhaps you feel that you are stuck in a repetitive and dull place where it feels hard to move? Are you a pregnant woman or a parent of an infant and want some support with the variety of feelings that come with pregnancy and parenthood? Have you moved to Switzerland and are struggling to settle?

Life can be bumpy, sometimes. Change is always happening, be it in love, in work, in health and in the larger world around us. At times it can be useful to have someone by your side to navigate those changes, and increase clarity about the choices available, and the directions you might want to explore. Transitions and transformations are, I believe, what make life interesting - even though tough and rough at intervals. Gaining agency and insight in a place that is non-judgmental will help you make your choices, aligning yourself with your deepest sense of self.

Hi, my name is Masha, I am a Coach and Psychologist. I combine coaching with therapy to help you make the most of your life, by turning around areas that are not fulfilling and creating change that lasts. Coaching helps you get clarity, set goals aligned with your purpose, and gives you the tools to create your life intentionally. Therapy helps deepen this process by addressing emotional blocks, unresolved traumas or defense mechanisms, to name a few, that stand in your way.

Family Therapy Counsellors

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
