I had an opportunity to draw experience from many different areas. Before finishing my Clinical Psychology Master’s Degree I was already training as a mindfulness teacher (Cat. 1 Reg. 20181245) and attending cognitive-behavioral therapy postgraduate studies. In my work I like to tune my methods and techniques to a particular person, working together on possible solutions.
I am drawing techniques and methods from a couple of different therapy perspectives, like cognitive-behavioral, schema and mindfulness-based therapies. However, I believe that while a psychologist might have the tools to solve a problem, it is the client who is the true expert of his or hers difficulties. Thus, I strongly believe in a collaborative and active style, where psychologist and the client work together to achieve client’s goals.
I am a very curious and interested-in-everything type of person. When I am not having sessions or workshops, I try to dive into my second passion – jazz era dances like lindy-hop. I am also a very strong believer in an honest, compassionate and caring way of being – both with others and with myself. I guess that is why I became a mindfulness trainer and psychologist – it allows me to continuously learn to live an authentic life, a bit kinder with every step.

I will offer you a warm and caring place to build skills and enhance your personal growth. Therapy is a guided process of self-discovery. Whether it begins in response to a traumatic event or at a time when positive change is sought, old patterns of behavior and thinking can stand in the way of healthy communication and feelings. Therapy provides access to strengthen skills so that new and healthier thoughts, feelings and behaviors take the place of old unhealthy ones.
