I believe in emotional health. Having emotions is as natural as your appetite, and that having emotional difficulties is as human as experiencing hunger; Processing our emotions in therapy is as necessary as any other visit to a doctor: either for a check-up, when there are initial symptoms, or once the problem has already manifested and is making our life somehow dysfunctional. I avoid labels or focusing on pathology; instead, I concentrate on helping my clients to overcome the doubts, difficulties or challenges that get in the way of a calm, stable and fulfilling life.

I'm well-versed in neuroscience and its latest findings on trauma, anger, depression, impulsivity, sexual problems, and all emotional grievances. Thanks to neuroscience, brain/mind are better understood, and I am committed to the paradigm shift. I use Neurofeedback for brain regulation/optimization and perception improvement, which helps emotions, performance, concentration, sleep, focus, learning....

I've learn about people by living in different countries/cultures, practicing more than one religion & profession. As a banker/consultant, I helped people growing their wealth. As a therapist, I work in how to get a better/happy life regardless of experiences or circumstances and create emotional wealth.
