As a self-identified gay man, I am quite familiar first-hand with the process of 'coming out' in a predominantly heterosexual normative, patriarchal, society. I can be your ally dealing with issues of self-esteem, anxiety, depression, guilt, shame, how they affect relationships, be it romantic, sexual, purely platonic, or work-related, and any compulsive behavior you may experience in response to developmental trauma. I am equally at ease and experience working with individuals and couples across the entire gender and sexual identity spectrum.
My orientation to psychotherapy is infused with several counseling approaches: Gestalt, for its ability to discern how different parts of your personality interact, Sensorimot, for its collaborative, somato-based organic approach based on mindfulness and mind-body-spirit integration. My therapeutic approach is trauma-informed and based on attachment theory.
Some founding principles guide my practice: open curiosity, authenticity, acceptance, and compassion in a non-judgemental, yet warmly inquisitive way. When was the last time you caught yourself by surprise thinking you're more than you thought you were? This is what I am curious to find out, I invite you to join me on a journey of discovery.
Andare a vivere in un paese lontano dal quale si è nati, a volte, riporta alla memoria situazioni e sentimenti che si erano messi da parte. Se vi sentite soli, ansiosi, provate mancanza di motivazione, la necessità di sentirvi supportati nel vivere quotidiano, io sono ben felice di incontrarvi al fine di esplorare insieme com’è possibile affrontare insieme questo processo al fine di migliorare la vostra qualità della vita. Queste difficoltà, se non affrontate, possono rendere difficile sentirsi appagati e soddisfatti.
Le mie specializzazioni nel campo psicoterapeutico sono: trauma, ansia, sensi di colpa e vergogna, stati di angoscia, differenze culturali, in ambito personale e relazionale.
Lavorando assieme, possiamo scoprire quali siano i vostri bisogni, sviluppare maggiore consapevolezza di voi stessi, al fine di realizzare quali comportamenti meglio supportano i vostri sentimenti e come sia possibile costruire, passo per passo, una vita differente che vi offra maggior significato in relazione ai vostri valori personali.
