About

Inspired by the passion of the clinical field, I became Professional Counselor to help people improving their quality of living. It means that it does no matter what the initial phase of the persons existing living arrangements, the quality of life can be improved through professional counseling. My diverse and intense professional working experience added to the qualified academic, and certified credentials gained; makes me a valuable, suitable and responsible therapist with a strong understanding of human behavior in extreme situations that provides private and confidential therapy, safe environment of treatment, and ethical standards of practice for all clients.
My approach to work is psychodynamic, and more specifically, psychoanalytic. Psychoanalysis is a discipline that includes both an interpretation of human subjectivity and its behaviors as a therapeutic method for treating the psychic suffering of the human subject. My practice is based, precisely, on the belief of the unconscious and its interpretation.
The psychoanalytic technique relies on free association. During therapy clients express ideas, emotions, and thoughts, as they come to mind, without restrictions or regulations. Frequently, I also use techniques from Solution-Focused Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, and Person-Centered Therapy. These methods are used as complementary tools to address issues such phobias, anxiety, compulsions, traumas, stress reduction, etc.
