Is your mind often hi-jacked by disturbing thoughts? Do you feel overwhelmed by painful and difficult emotions? Are you having a hard time sleeping at night or focusing on work/studying or other important people or matters? Are you having difficulties communicating your needs and setting healthy boundaries? Sometimes life can seem overwhelmingly challenging and make us feel stuck and unable to move at all which can lead to addictive or other destructive behaviours. Do you want to change your situation but don't know how? Psychotherapy can be your resolve.
My approach is Warm, Compassionate, Holistic, Neuroaffective and Evidence-based. I integrate revolutionary EMDR (Eye-movement-desensitization-reprocessing) Flash- and Mindfulness based techniques with supportive talk therapy. In my treatment you learn how to manage your emotions and thoughts and how to set healthy boundaries and communicate effectively.
I see amazing results in my clients as they grow emotionally and behaviorally and radically reduce the emotional charge of painful memories or future fears; often transforming themselves to lead more present, balanced, authentic, happy and meaningful lives. Call me to set up a free phone consultation to discuss what you need and how I can help you.
Hej! Om du söker en svensk licensierad psykoterapeut i Kalifornien (motsvarar legitimerad psykolog i Sverige) så har du kommit rätt! Jag är svensk men har bott och verkat i Los Angeles i nästan 30 år men har fortfarande mycket kontakt med Sverige och väl uppdaterad. Jag förstår mig på de ibland unika svårigheter man kan stöta på som svensk i USA, både vad gäller kulturella skillnader i värderingar och normer men även hemlängtan och kommunikationsproblem. Många av mina klienter är svenskar i alla åldrar och kommer till mig för att få hjälp med diverse utmaningar som kan komma att påverka den mentala hälsan på olika sätt.
Jag är specialiserad på Mindfulness och är förutom legitermerad psykoterapuet även certifierad mindfulnesslärare och coach. Jag integrerar mindfulness i min psykoterapeutiska behandling av mina klienter. Det har visat sig vara en väldigt bra metod som får mina klienter att känna sig stärkta mentalt och befriade från sin ångest.
Om det känns tungt och eländigt så går det ofta att hitta en väg ut med rätt "verktyg" och stöd. Mina klienter kommer till mig av olika skäl och det kan röra sig om allt från hemlängtan till stress till relationshproblem till självmordstankar eller missbruk av olika slag. Ring mig så vi kan ta reda om och hur jag kan hjälpa dig, din relation eller familj.
