About My Clients

Whether you feel like you have reached rock bottom, you are going through a massive crisis, or your relationship has hit a very rough patch, you need help. Maybe your sexual behavior is out of control, or infidelity has shattered your relationship. Perhaps you have swept under the rug that sexual trauma, or you have been keeping yourself so busy to avoid grieving and feeling your feelings. It is time to take charge and get the life that you deserve: gain awareness, manage, heal.

My Background and Approach

I work with you collaboratively to determine what is the best approach for your presenting issues, personality, context. I make sure I work side by side with you so that you can make the most of your time in therapy and actually see results. I use Accelerated Resolution Therapy and EMDR that have both been shown to provide effective relief from PTSD, trauma, anxiety, depression and panic disorders. They are both extensively researched and they both allow the brain to do the natural process of healing. I am trained in Gottman, EFT and Pragmatic/Experiential Therapy for Couples that are evidenced based and they address the perpetual differences in a couple and how to heal past emotional injuries. Therapy with me can look like a deep dive into all your soul corners, like mining or like solution-focused step by step guidance on how to discover your inner resources and know how and when to use them. I also speak Romanian.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that therapy is like a mirror that is placed in front of you and even though it feels uncomfortable, it hurts and it is so hard at times, at the end of the day there is a different way to live life. Some level of suffering is inevitable yet we all have the power to improve our selves and our relationships, to break free from that addiction, unhealthy behavior, pain. I believe that the human being is inherently good and we all deserve to be loved, happy and have a good life. Trauma does not define who we are and we don't need to carry it around our whole life. We deserve to be whole, have self worth and peace of mind.
