My speciality is working with individuals experiencing issues with stress, anxiety, depression, addiction, over-eating, grief and trauma. My approach is to first identify coping strategies to deal with the current stress and emotional strain by focusing on strengths and existing coping mechanisms. Together, we sort out the underlying problems and identify more effective coping strategies to deal with every day stressors and overwhelming emotional reactions to current and past trauma. I think the relationship between therapist and client is really important for growth and change; and do my best to provide a warm, natural, humorous and relaxed atmosphere.

I like to work eclectically; focusing on strength's based and cognitive behavioral approaches to treatment, as well as utilizing mindfulness, and existential and narrative explorations of self. I work a lot on boosting the sense of self and self worth; striving for increased locus of control and self-efficacy.

I facilitate a couple of stress and anxiety groups: Process-oriented psycho-educational series focusing on understanding and managing stress, anxiety and panic. Hailing from Scandinavia, I also enjoy working with fellow ex-pats, managing acculturation and acclimation processes.
